Heads

All Scratch Golf heads are made from the finest materials available and utilizing only the best manufacturing processes. We are committed to making the best golf clubs in the world with no expense spared.

Scratch Fit

Our skilled craftsmen in Hemiji, Japan possesses a combined sum of hundreds of years experience forging and grinding golf clubs going back to the days of forging the finest Samurai swords.

Utilizing 1018 Carbon Steel requires several additional forging steps than other materials. As a result Scratch Golf Clubs are more expensive to manufacture. Once the raw heads are forged, our talented craftsmen shape each head by hand to our exact specifications and exact sole grinds. The Scratch Fit wedges are hand ground by our craftsmen in Japan while the Armory Tour Custom clubs are hand ground at our facility in Berkley TN by Master Craftsmen Jeff McCoy and Don White. Combined, our Master Craftsman have ground clubs that have won 15 Major Championships and countless PGA and other Major Tour victories.

Once the raw head has been hand ground by one of our Master Craftsmen, the head is then polished by hand and run through our tumblers to polish and smooth out the surface of the head prior to final finishing. After the tumbler stage, the heads may played or go through 1-4 extra preparatory steps depending on what finish the customer has chosen for the final product. Only then is it ready for hand stamping final finishing.

Grooves

Grooves

The standard groove in all Scratch Golf clubs is our proprietary "ABC-V" groove. This new groove is designed to meet the new USGA Condition of Competition for Professionals and is legal for play everywhere from the PGA Tour to your local Saturday Foursome. This groove is designed to maximize the overall groove area on the entire face of the golf club while still conforming to the new rules.


Bounce

Bounce

Bounce is one of the most important terms when it comes to understanding the sole grind of an iron or wedge.

The simple definition of "Bounce" is : The angle formed by the difference in height between the Leading Edge and Trailing Edge of a golf club.

This measurement is called "Static Bounce". The problem with Static Bounce is that there is no consistent way to measure it. When you have a wedge with any kind of relief or camber on it you can measure the Static Bounce any number of different ways which creates great inconsistency across the industry. It also ignores the other key components of the playability of the sole grind which include Sole Width, Camber, Relief and Leading Edge Height.


Bounce

When you take these 5 key components of the sole grind (Static Bounce, Sole Width, Camber, Relief and Leading Edge Height) and put them together you get what we refer to as "Playable Bounce". Playable Bounce measures the way the wedge will actually play on the golf course in the players hands instead of only giving you part of the picture. All Scratch Golf Bounce measurements are in Playable Bounce to help the player more easily understand the specs of each of our grinds.
