Callaway's Idea? No Way.

By Golfrefugees

Golf Refugees created and developed the idea of an aerofoil-section hosel for a golf club head, surrounding the circular cross-section golf shaft, reducing aerodynamic drag and increasing club head speed.
At the time we showed prototypes of the design and held discussions with leading golf brands including Titleist, Mizuno and Callaway. All of our work was documented, dated and filed with various organisations including Cranfield University UK, where it formed part of an aerodynamic research project.
Now Callaway in one of their latest US patents ‘Golf club head with improved aerodynamic characteristics’ 8,177,659 dated 12 th May 2012 are claiming it’s their idea.
We formally request Callaway to acknowledge it is a Golf Refugees idea. ----------------------------------------------------------
