  1. Hello: this may seem like a dumb question: are the 565s and 575s one solid piece of metal? i’m confused by all of the clubs calling themselves ‘forged’ but they are two pieces of forged metal welded together. then usually injected with foam

      Not a dumb question all all because you really need to see the forging process to better understand how it works. On that here’s a link to a video that shows the actual process of forging to take a hot bar of steel to a raw forging ready for all the machining steps to turn it into a clubhead – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUfvAjAbxfI

      The 565 and 575 are forged from one piece of steel, just like what is in the video I pasted the link for. One round bar of carbon steel is heated to soften it and then hit/hammered (forged) through a series of dies to make the solid raw forged head. From there a ton of machining and drilling and grinding steps turn it in the clubhead.

      You can also make a clubhead by forging the two halves of the head separately and then welding the pieces together to make the clubhead. Not many companies would ever make a forged iron head this way because it’s a waste of time and money to make a forged head from two separately forged parts that would be welded together. But if you chose to make a forged driver head or fairway wood or hybrid, you most definitely would have to forge two and usually at least three separate pieces to then be welded together to make the hollow body head. There are hollow body iron heads that are made as well but almost always such an iron would be made by investment casting and not forging because casting two pieces to then be welded together would be far less expensive to do than to forge two separate pieces to be welded together.

      So forged iron and wedge heads are almost always forged as one solid piece. In the case of the 565 the only way we could make such a deep and straight walled back cavity on the head was to forge the head with a solid thick body as per what you see in the video and then we use a big machining center to literally carve the steel out of the back of the head to make the deep cavity that gives the head its high MOI. For the 575, we hammer the back cavity shape into the head because it’s a shallow cavity, not super deep like the 565, and with shallow back cavities you can forge that into the head.

      Remember, in forging you are just “pushing metal around” so when the hammer hits the steel piece, that excess steel has to flow and ooze somewhere. In casting you pour molten steel into a casting shell so the molten metal flows into every nook and cranny of the shell to form the head. Thus with casting you can make any intricate shape with any kind of ledges or cavities that you can imagine. In forging you are limited in the intricacy of the shape you can make because you are hitting a solid piece of steel and not pouring a molten steel.

      Hope this helps, but if you have further questions please, by all means ask away and I will be glad to answer,
      TOM
