Title: GOLF CLUB HEAD OR OTHER BALL STRIKING DEVICE HAVING MULTIPLE FACE INSERTS
Abstract:
A ball striking device, such as a golf club (100), includes a head (102) with a face (112) having an outer surface configured for striking a ball, a body connected to the face, and a plurality of cavities (114) in the face, each cavity configured to receive an insert (140). The head may also include a plurality of inserts received within the cavities. The inserts may be made from one or more different materials having different densities. Different inserts having different densities can be connected to the face to customize the weighting of the face, such as to adjust the location of the center of gravity of the face or to change the moment of inertia of the head.
