As you may recall from a prior post, I created the “Fascinating IP of the Week” category to bring those oddly unique golf patents and published applications to the masses. You know the type… the ones that make you wonder whether the inventor is crazy or a genius.
On March 6th a design patent issued titled “Golf Club Head and a Golf Club Head Striking Face” that fits perfectly in this category (D537,897). The figures below say it all…
Could the “stop sign” club face be the next hot golf club?
Perhaps I am most surprised by the fact that the patent is assigned to someone other than the inventor. Inventor Katsumi Niwa must be one heck of a salesman!
