History

Our Mission

During a tournament, each golfer is permitted to carry 14 clubs in their bag, carefully selecting those clubs that give them the best chance to have success on the course. Everything we do at Fourteen Golf is built around that reality. We strive to meet one fundamental principle—to equip golfers with the best 14 clubs possible.

Established in 1981 by one of the leading golf club designers in Japan, Fourteen Golf has pushed the limits of club design to make the game more accessible and easy for golfers at all levels. We’ve long been committed to providing golfers with the best clubs they’ll ever use and all the clubs they’ll ever need.

This commitment extends from weekend amateurs to the highest ranks on professional tours. Golfers of all skill levels know that Fourteen offers a line of clubs that can enhance performance and improve their shotmaking.

Our Logo

Our goal is to produce equipment that allows all golfers to swing easily at the ball, without having to make any modifications. This freedom to swing at the ball with ease and lightness reflects the gracefulness of a bird and provides the inspiration for Fourteen’s iconic feather logo.

Our Story

Fourteen began as a golf club design firm, working with various golf club manufacturers to design and introduce a number of high quality clubs to the market. In 1987, Scott Simpson won the US Open with a set of SX-25 irons, which were designed by Fourteen.

The next year, we unveiled what is commonly called the Tarako Iron, which was a prototype of today’s hybrid irons. In 1989, our Momentum irons proved to be another success, drastically improving ball striking and distance, thanks to  an angled center of gravity (CG).

In 2002, Fourteen was officially launched as a brand, drawing from the experiences gained as a club design firm. We quickly caught the attention of the golf world as Ernie Els won The Open Championship that year using Fourteen HI-858 irons.

Nowadays, back-spin wedge shots are commonplace on the professional tours, but it was Fourteen’s original MT-28 wedge that made such kind of shot a reality for common golfers. Combining this spin capability with a high level of control and stability, MT-28 wedges have earned their place in golfers’ bags, from the best pros to everyday players.

Throughout its history, Fourteen has been recognized as a worldwide leader in wedge design and has earned a reputation for producing some of the most classically designed, tour inspired, forged irons in the world.

Bombtech Golf

Driver Design ProcessAs told by University of Vermont Engineering students

WWW.Bombtechgolf.com

 

We began by creating a problem statement to give our team a focused goal of what a successful design consisted of for this project and to provide guidance.

The problem statement: BombTech Golf wants a radically new golf driver head to be sold to the public. The driver head must adhere to USGA standards and must not infringe on any existing patents. It should have a loft of 10.5 degrees, be compatible with common shaft sizes and should be designed with the average golfers’ ability in mind. Wind-tunnel testing and CFD modeling should prove that this new head is aerodynamic while offering a large sweet spot. The driver head design will be manufactured out of a Ti-1188 titanium. Samples will be tested to provide physical data as well as user tested and graded to insure that a high quality club has been created.

Generating Ideas

To gain some general ideas and a starting point we researched patents and prior art for “aerodynamic” woods that had already been designed. This led us to club heads with dimples, channels, and grooves. We realized that a club head with a feature that reduced drag such as a cavity, such as these patents, would be more innovative and visually appealing than simply creating the most sleek club head possible.

We researched cars, boats, and trucks to see how they tried be more aerodynamic. We found our answer with trucks. A truck, like a golf club, has a large front surface that increases drag and cannot be streamlined like a small sports car. Everyone has heard the myth that you get better gas mileage with your tailgate up. This has been proven by different entities, most popularly Mythbusters. The tailgate creates a pocket of air to form in the bed of the truck which lets the oncoming air to travel over it instead of diving into the bed of the truck creating drag. We believed we could do something similar with a golf club head by making cavities in the sole of the club.

It was decided that two cavities was best to keep the center of mass directly behind the center of the club face. We created a 3-D model of a club head in SolidWorks, a Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) program. In this program we were able to use a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation to test different shaped cavities. We performed some simplified calculations to get a rough number for what our drag force should equal to prove the CFD models were accurate. We then began running dozens of tests to find which shape, depth, and angles of the triangles created the least amount of drag.

The Numbers

In order to make certain that our CDF simulations were accurate we analyzed the drag force on the club using the following equation:

The density of air is known. The drag coefficient is based on a geometrical assumption and therefore also a known constant of 1.17. Since the density of air and the drag coefficient are intrinsically predetermined, we wanted to be very precise with the projected area. Using the maximum allowable face dimensions, we arrived at an area of 0.0070939047m2. It is important to have this many decimal places, as it is a multiplier of the entire equation. We also decided on a club velocity of an average amateur golfer (85mph). This is an arbitrary number as long as we use this value for all testing, both physical and computational.

Fd = 7.21N This value served two purposes. It gave us a reference number allowing us to be certain that our simulations were accurate. 7.21 Newtons also served as a target maximum. Since the projected area was exaggerated our drag values at 85mph should fall below this mark. We were pleased when our simulations of our most aerodynamic design (now the GRENADE) was returning drag values of just above 5 N, well below our calculated maximum of 7.21 N

Krank Golf® Formula 5 Driver – Taking it to the next level.

Krank Golf® is proud to announce the launch of the highest performing golf driver in the world. The New Formula 5 Driver is the latest creation by Krank Golf®, the world’s leader in high performing USGA legal golf drivers. This new driver encompasses everything Krank Golf® has learned over the past 10 years in golf driver design.

KEY FEATURES :

  • Maximum Energy Transfer Technology : This Exclusive Krank Golf® technology stores the energy created at impact more forward in the driver head and release the energy back to the ball more efficiently than any driver made today.
  • Maximum Rigidity : Krank Golf® has designed this driver to resist bowing and deforming at impact. Thus, diminishing the loss of energy created at impact through the deformation of the driver head itself.
  • Maximum Metal Hardness : Krank Golf® is at the forefront of metal technology. Maximizing metal hardness is key to performance. Krank Golf® Drivers exceed all other manufactures in metal hardness technology.
  • Toe and Heel Adjustable Weighting : This New Driver can be played from 194 Grams to 208 Grams. This weighting system allows every golfer to dial in the best possible head weight needed for their swing. 5, 6, and 7.5 degree lofts have no weights in them. So can we put on the site when ordered, stating these lofts do not require the Weight Kits.
  • 100% Forged Driver : Krank Golf® only builds 100% Forged Drivers.

Inspired by Muscle Cars, Geek Golf Introduces A True Muscle Head…The No Brainer!!!

Due to the distinct placement of extra weight incorporating the design characteristics of the sole and body of the NO BRAINER…this is truly a ‘Muscle’ head…hence the tie-in to Muscle cars!The Aerodynamics of the body works to enhance the unique weighting design of the sole of the club.  The sole weighting runs from ‘heel to toe’ directly behind the face which then extends in 3 weighting configurations going from the front portion of the club sloping to tapered positions to really increase the MOI and drop the COG further back and upward without utilizing a ‘skirt’ on the sides and back portion of the club which in turn applies more weight where it will do the most good.The design positioning of the added weight lowers ‘spin’ and increases ‘ball speed’ dramatically.  Look for tremendous carry and tons of roll out with the NO BRAINER…Steve Almo, of AlmoDesigns was recently quoted…”anyone can add weight to a head…you MUST incorporate the added weight into the design characteristics for optimal performance.  Where you put the added weight to increase performance is key.  I worked on this design for the better part of 2 years…it‘s a Monster Killer”.
