That's right, today Callaway was granted a patent listing Lefty as an inventor (the first named inventor in fact). You will probably recognize the club if you are a true golf geek, and it was all the commentators seemed to talk about at Bethpage.

 

The patent granted as USPN D616,512 titled “Hybrid Golf Club Head.” Check it out!

Good work Phil! Unfortunately the club must not have had enough widespread appeal to produce a commercial version.

I was thinking that because of the way the sole is configured, that club would really only be useful out of thick rough

Kind of looks like it would function like a hybrid out of rough, and more like an iron off tighter lies.
