Face Treatments

     Chapter seven documents those clubs whose faces are not solid, level, or flat. Such clubs as rake irons, water irons, window blades, backspin irons, and cylinder putters are presented. So, too, are negative loft, concave face, convex face, multiloft, drilled face, step face, curved face, bulger face, ridge face, and dual face clubs.
