Almost a year ago I published a post on what may be the next step in club head adjustability; namely, coefficient of restitution (COR) adjustability, or the ability to adjust the stiffness of club’s face. Interested?The prior post posed the following hypothetical:
Last year’s post highlighted Acushnet patent USPN 7247104 titled “COR Adjustment Device.” Well, last month Acushnet had another patent issue directed to this technology; namely USPN 7367897, also titled “COR Adjustment Device.” The latest patent describes the invention as:
A golf club head with a variable coefficient of restitution is disclosed and claimed.
Obviously Acushnet feels there might be something to this technology. I can’t wait to see when, or if, it makes it to market!
