  Hereinafter, embodiments of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

  1A and 1B are views showing a golf club according to an embodiment of the present invention, in which FIG. 1A is a view with a face portion in front, and FIG. 1B is a view with a toe portion in front.

  The golf club 1 shown in FIG. 1 has a head 12 set at a predetermined lie angle α and a predetermined loft angle β with respect to a reference horizontal plane at the tip of a shaft 11 made of metal or FRP. Configured. Here, the “loft angle” is a so-called “real loft”, and specifically, is a loft angle when a predetermined lie angle α is set and the face angle is 0 °. A neck portion 11a is provided at the tip of the shaft 11, and a head 12 is attached to the neck portion 11a. The neck portion 11a is formed integrally with the shaft 11 or separately. When the neck portion 11a is integrally formed, the neck portion 11a may be directly formed on the shaft 11, or the neck portion 11a may be integrally formed by insert molding at the time of forming the shaft. A grip 13 made of a flexible or soft material such as natural rubber or synthetic rubber is attached to the base end of the shaft 11. Moreover, in the shaft 11, the socket 11b for filling the level | step difference of the shaft 11 and the neck part 11a is integrally formed.

  The grip 13 is formed so that the outer shape of at least the region actually gripped by the golfer (the region indicated by the symbol R in FIG. 1A and the region of 20 mm to 180 mm from the grip end) has a circular cross section. It is preferable. Specifically, when the shaft 11 is rotated, it is preferable that the wall thickness and the outer shape be the same perfect circle so that the same gripping feeling can be obtained at any position of 360 ° (however, In this case, the perfect circle need only be accurate to the extent that a grip state in which a sense of incongruity is unlikely to occur when grasped is generally called “no back line”. Moreover, it is preferable to make the hardness uniform in the circumferential direction. With this configuration, when the shaft 11 is rotated, the same gripping feeling can be obtained at any position. In addition, since it is a part which does not grip about the former edge part and front-end | tip part (part other than the area | region shown by R) of a grip, arbitrary shapes may be sufficient.

  In the head 12, with the head 12 attached to the ground as shown in FIG. 1A, the toe portion 12 a is located at a position relatively away from the shaft 11, and the heel portion 12 b is located at a position near the shaft 11. The crown portion 12c is located on the top surface, and the sole portion 12d is located on the bottom surface. Further, as shown in FIG. 1B, the head 12 is provided with a face portion 12e for hitting a ball. Further, a back portion 12f is located on the opposite side to the face portion 12e.

  In the head 12, other than the face material fixed to the face portion 12e, for example, titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V, Ti-15V-3Cr-3Sn-3Al), iron-based alloy (17-4ph, SUS304) Alternatively, it is preferably formed integrally by casting Custum450 (manufactured by Carpenter) or the like, and an opening is formed on the front side of the face material constituting the hitting surface of the face portion 12e. The head 12 may be formed by forming each member constituting it individually and fixing them by welding, bonding or the like. Examples of the face material fixed to the face portion 12e include titanium alloys (Ti-15V-3Cr-3Sn-3Al, Ti-6Al-4V, SP700, Ti-15V-6Cr-4Al, Ti-15Mo-5Zr- 3Al), iron-based alloy (Custum455,465 (Carpenter), 18Ni-12Co-4.5Mo-1.5Ti-Fe), or Ti-30Nb-10Ta-5Zr, etc. It is preferable to integrally form by pressing (may be further milled), and the face material thus formed fits into the opening formed in the face portion 12e, and is bonded, welded, or soldered. It is fixed by attaching. The face portion 12e may be integrally formed with the head 12 instead of fitting a face material as a separate member, and the entire face portion 12e is made of a face material different from the head 12. May be.

  FIG. 2 is an enlarged view showing the head of the golf club shown in FIG. The head 12 is provided with a hosel portion 12g to which the shaft 11 is directly or indirectly attached. The neck portion 11a of the shaft 11 is attached to the hosel portion 12g by screwing via the adjusting body 14. In FIG. 2, reference numeral 11 b indicates a socket, and reference numeral 11 c indicates a central axis of the shaft 11. Reference symbol C indicates the face center, which is the center of the face surface height and the center of the face width. The face center is a measurement point when measuring the “loft angle” and “face angle”.

  FIG. 3 is an enlarged view showing a neck portion of the head of the golf club shown in FIG. The neck 11 a of the shaft 11 is configured by covering the tip of the shaft 11 with the neck 11 a. The neck portion 11a has a large-diameter portion 21 that decreases in diameter from the distal end side toward the proximal end side. A flange surface 21a is provided at the end of the large-diameter portion 21 on the distal end side, and the flange surface 21a constitutes a first receiving surface of the hosel portion 12g or a second receiving surface that comes into contact with the adjusting body 14. Yes. The adjusting body 14 is disposed at the position of the flange surface 21a. Further, a male screw 24 that is screwed with the hosel part 12g is formed at the tip of the neck part 11a.

  On the other hand, an insertion hole 22 for inserting the neck portion 11 a of the shaft 11 is formed in the hosel portion 12 g of the head 12. The insertion hole 22 has a size sufficient for the neck portion 11a of the shaft 11 to be inserted and screwed together. On the inner peripheral surface of the insertion hole 22, a female screw 23 that is screwed with the male screw 24 of the neck portion 11 a is formed.

  When the shaft 11 and the head 12 having such a configuration are coupled, the neck portion 11a of the shaft 11 is inserted into the insertion hole 22 of the head 12, and the shaft 11 is rotated. As a result, the neck portion 11 a of the shaft 11 is screwed to the hosel portion 12 g of the head 12 by being screwed into the male screw 24 of the neck portion 11 a and the female screw 23 of the insertion portion 22. Thus, in a state where the shaft 11 is attached to the head 12, the central axis 26 of the insertion hole 22 in which the female screw 23 is formed and the central axis 11c of the shaft 11 have a predetermined angle θ. This angle θ is preferably 0.5 to 5 degrees in consideration of the change range of the lie angle and the loft angle. However, the angle θ is not limited to this range and can be appropriately set to a value outside this range. Further, a space 25 is provided between the most distal end portion of the neck portion 11 a and the bottom surface of the insertion hole 22. The space 25 is set so that the most distal end portion of the neck portion 11a and the bottom surface of the insertion hole 22 do not contact each other even if the adjusting body 14 is not interposed between the hosel portion 12g and the neck portion 11a. Regarding the screw directions of the male screw 24 and the female screw 23, it is preferable to use a “reverse screw” for a right-handed golf club and a “normal screw” for a left-handed golf club. By doing so, the loft angle and the lie angle are stabilized by being firmly tightened by the hit ball.

  FIG. 4 is an exploded view for explaining a coupling state between the hosel part and the neck part. More specifically, the neck portion 11 a is provided with an extended portion 27 into which the shaft 11 is inserted, a large-diameter portion 21 provided on the distal end side of the extended portion 27, and connected to the distal end side of the large-diameter portion 21. The insertion portion 28 to be inserted into the insertion hole 22 of the hosel portion 12g and a male screw 24 formed at the tip of the insertion portion 28 are mainly configured. The flange surface 21a formed on the large-diameter portion 21 is a receiving surface that comes into contact with the first receiving surface 30 of the adjusting body 14 or the hosel portion 12g. Further, a shaft fitting hole 29 is provided in the neck portion 11a.

  The hosel portion 12g is formed in the insertion hole 22 for inserting the insertion portion 28 of the neck portion 11a, the female screw 23 formed on the inner peripheral surface of the insertion hole 22 and screwed with the male screw 24 of the neck portion 11a, and the adjusting body 14 or the neck. It is mainly comprised from the 1st receiving surface 30 contact | abutted with the 2nd receiving surface 21a of the part 11a. Further, the bottom surface of the insertion hole 22 of the hosel part 12g is provided with a connecting part 30d extending to the heel part 12b side. By providing the connecting portion 30d, the strength of the hosel portion 12g can be improved. The connecting portion 30d may be provided on the sole portion. Further, the connecting portion 30d may not be provided.

  In the present embodiment, the insertion hole 22 means a shaft mounting hole provided in the hosel part 12g. Therefore, in the hosel part 12g, the position of the top part (first receiving surface 30) of the insertion hole 22 may be higher than the crown part 12c, but by lowering the crown part 12c, the golfer holds the position. It becomes possible to make the shape beautiful (easy to hold and not strange).

  The second receiving surface 21 a of the neck portion 11 a and the first receiving surface 30 of the hosel portion 12 g can be surfaced via the adjusting body 14. In addition, since the width and outer diameter of the receiving surface can be arbitrarily set independently of the threaded portion, deformation wear due to repeated use can be suppressed, and it is possible to prevent biting and detachment.

  Further, in this configuration, since the insertion portion 28 of the neck portion 11a is inserted into the insertion hole 22 of the hosel portion 12g, it is possible to prevent rattling when the shaft 11 is attached to the head 12. In contrast, the shaft 11 can be attached with high accuracy. Moreover, in the insertion part 28, it is preferable to form a convex part partially on the outer periphery because the adjustment body 14 can be held on the outer periphery of the insertion part 28 when the adjustment body 14 is interposed.

  Moreover, it is preferable that the front end side of the male screw 24 formed in the insertion portion 28 is relatively thick. Thereby, fatigue failure due to repeated application of torsional stress and tensile stress can be prevented. The male screw 24 is preferably formed on the distal end side of the insertion portion 28. Thereby, it becomes possible to attach the shaft 11 to the head 12 more accurately by lengthening the insertion portion 28. In the case where the male screw 24 is provided on the proximal end side of the insertion portion 28, it is preferable that the length of the insertion portion 28 is made longer than the length of the male screw 24.

  As shown in FIG. 4, the insertion hole 22 formed in the hosel portion 12g and the neck portion 11a inserted therein are screwed with the female screw 23 of the hosel portion 12g and the male screw 24 of the neck portion 11a. The insertion length L of the neck portion 11a at the tip of the shaft with respect to the insertion hole 22 of the hosel portion (insertion length of the portion where the male screw 24 is not formed) L is the diameter D of the opening portion of the insertion hole 22. It is preferable that it is set larger.

  With this configuration, when the head 12 is removed from the shaft 11, the insertion length L is reduced even if the screw 11 is released by rotating the head with the shaft 11 facing downward and the head 12 facing upward. Since it is longer than the diameter D of the insertion hole 22, the insertion part can exist in the insertion hole 22, and the head 12 can be maintained in the neck part 11a at the tip of the shaft. As a result, it is possible to prevent the head from being accidentally dropped and damaged or damaged. In this case, in the relationship between L and D described above, by setting L> 1.2D, preferably L> 1.5D, it is possible to effectively prevent the head from dropping.

  When the male thread 24 is formed in the neck portion 11a, it is preferable to perform threading under the same conditions, with the second receiving surface 21a as a reference. Moreover, when forming the internal thread 23 in the hosel part 12g, it is preferable to perform a screw process on the 1st receiving surface 30 on the same conditions altogether. In addition, about the screw part of the hosel part 12g, you may align and attach the screw part containing the female screw or hosel part formed separately, and the hosel part 12g by adhesion | attachment, welding, etc. FIG.

  As shown in FIG. 4, the neck portion 11 a is provided with a shaft fitting hole 29 inside. The shaft fitting hole 29 has a sufficient size for fitting the shaft 11. Further, the shaft fitting hole 29 is formed so that the central axis thereof has a predetermined angle θ with respect to the central axis of the insertion portion 28. That is, since the shaft 11 is fitted along the shaft fitting hole 29 and the insertion portion 28 is screwed into the insertion hole 22, the center axis of the insertion hole 22 in which the female screw 23 is formed, the head 12 and the shaft 11 are connected. The central axis of the shaft 11 when screwed has a predetermined angle θ. In the present specification, the region of the insertion hole and / or the internal thread is referred to as an insertion region.

  When the shaft fitting hole 29 is formed so that the central axis thereof has a predetermined angle θ with respect to the central axis of the insertion portion 28, for example, as shown in FIG. 4, the proximal end side surface 21 b of the large diameter portion 21 is formed. The orthogonal axis is set at a predetermined angle with respect to the central axis of the insertion portion 28. As a result, when the insertion portion 28 is inserted into the insertion hole 22 of the hosel portion 12g, the central axis of the insertion portion 28 and the central axis of the insertion hole 22 coincide, and the shaft 11 is fitted into the shaft fitting hole 29. In doing so, the central axis of the shaft 11 and the central axis of the insertion portion 28 have a predetermined angle θ. In the present embodiment, the insertion portion 28 has the hosel portion 12g by making the axis perpendicular to the proximal side surface 21b of the large diameter portion 21 have a predetermined angle with respect to the central axis of the insertion portion 28. When the shaft 11 is inserted into the insertion hole 22, the center axis of the insertion portion 28 matches the center axis of the insertion hole 22, and when the shaft 11 is fitted into the shaft fitting hole 29, the center axis of the shaft 11 However, in the present invention, any part or member of the neck portion 11a and / or the hosel portion 12g is used. When the insertion portion 28 is inserted into the insertion hole 22 of the hosel portion 12g, the center axis of the insertion portion 28 matches the center axis of the insertion hole 22, and the shaft 11 is inserted into the shaft fitting hole 29. When , The center axis of the shaft 11 and the center axis of the insertion portion 28 may be configured to have a predetermined angle.

  When the shaft 11 is attached to the neck portion 11a, for example, the distal end of the shaft 11 is fitted into a shaft fitting hole formed on the proximal end side of the extended portion 27 and fixed by adhesion or the like. Note that the outer extension 27 may be configured to be solid, and the extension 27 may be fitted and fixed in the hollow portion of the shaft 11.

  When the neck portion 11a having the above structure is screwed to the hosel portion 12g, the center axis of the shaft 11 is inserted into the insertion portion 28 in a use state in which the second receiving surface 21a of the neck portion 11a is in contact with the first receiving surface 30 of the hosel portion 12g. It has a predetermined angle θ with respect to the central axis. In this way, by providing an angle to the central axis, the position between the shaft 11 and the rotation direction of the head 12 can be set with high accuracy by exchanging the adjusting body, which will be described later. Adjustments can be made. As a result, it is possible to make a test shot while changing the lie angle and loft angle without preparing many types of heads, and to provide a golf club having a desired lie angle or loft angle based on the test hit result to the customer Is possible.

  As the material constituting the neck portion 11a, in consideration of low specific gravity, strength, and wear resistance, titanium alloys such as pure titanium, Ti-15V-3Cr-3Sn-3Al, and aluminum alloys such as 6061 and 7075 are particularly preferable. An iron alloy or a high-strength resin may be used. Moreover, when using an aluminum alloy, it is preferable to carry out an alumite treatment in order to prevent electrical contact. Further, when the neck portion 11a is screwed to the hosel portion 12g or is loosened and removed, it is preferable that the outer surface of the extended portion 27 of the neck portion 11a is easily grasped. Specifically, as in an embodiment shown in FIG. 12, which will be described later, it is preferable to form an engaging portion with which a tool used when attaching and detaching the shaft and the head is engaged. Such an engaging part can be constituted by, for example, a flat part, a hole, a rib, an unevenness, etc. to which a tool is applied, and in particular, a hexagonal surface part is formed to facilitate gripping with a general spanner. From the viewpoint of appearance and strength, it is preferable. Furthermore, it is preferable to form a polygonal surface portion such as a hexagonal surface portion, and to mark the one surface of the polygonal surface portion so that the inclination direction of the shaft can be identified.

  Next, the adjustment body 14 will be described. FIG. 5 is a cross-sectional view showing a golf club adjuster according to an embodiment of the present invention. The adjusting body 14 has a substantially ring shape and is attached to the insertion portion 28 of the neck portion 11a. The adjusting body 14 has a pair of A and B surfaces facing each other, and the A and B surfaces are substantially parallel to each other.

The tolerance of the thickness t is preferably ± 0.005 (± 0.003) or less.

  The material constituting the adjustment body 14 is preferably a material harder than the material constituting the head 12 in consideration of wear resistance. For this reason, a material harder than the material forming the head 12 may be processed, or after processing with a specific material, heat treatment may be performed to make the material harder than the material forming the head 12. Specifically, titanium alloys such as pure titanium, Ti-6Al-4V, Ti-15V-3Cr-3Sn-3Al, or iron-based alloys are preferable. Further, a resin with high wear resistance may be used, and in that case, electric contact can be prevented.

  Next, a method for using the adjusting body in the golf club of the present invention will be described.

  FIG. 6 is a view for explaining the angle adjustment of the adjusting body in the golf club according to the embodiment of the present invention. In the golf club shown in FIG. 6, as described above, the center axis of the insertion portion 28 and the center axis of the insertion hole 22 coincide, and the center axis of the shaft 11 and the center axis of the insertion portion 28 form a predetermined angle. Therefore, when the shaft 11 is rotated, the central axis of the shaft 11 rotates in the direction of the arrow in FIG. By utilizing this principle, the relationship between the head 12 and the shaft 11 can be set in the shaft direction at an arbitrary angle of 360 degrees (one rotation) by rotating the neck portion 11a. That is, by such rotation, the lie angle and the loft angle can be arbitrarily set in the golf club. In this case, the position in the rotation direction (rotation angle) can be adjusted by the thickness of the adjustment body 14.

  FIG. 7 is a diagram for explaining the relationship between the adjusting body (thickness) and the rotation angle. In FIG. 7, directions “1” to “8” indicate directions on the grip side of the shaft 11 with respect to the central axis 26 of the insertion hole 22 of the head 12. Here, a case will be described in which eight adjustment bodies having different thicknesses are used, and the adjustment positions of the shaft 11 with respect to the head 12 are selected by exchanging these adjustment bodies. The number of the adjusting bodies 14 is not particularly limited, and the mounting position in the rotation direction of the shaft 11 with respect to the head 12 may be selected with a number other than eight. For example, as shown in FIG. 7, when one rotation (360 degrees) is divided into eight equal parts, adjustment is made by setting the dimensions obtained by dividing one pitch of the screw into eight equal parts to the respective thicknesses of the adjusting bodies 14. Is possible. That is, as shown in Table 1 below, a dimension obtained by dividing one pitch of the screw into 8 parts for each rotation angle is set to each thickness of the adjusting body 14. Various lie angles and loft angles can be realized by interposing adjustment bodies having different thicknesses between the neck portion 11a and the hosel portion 12g. It can be realized only by replacement. In other words, it is only necessary to prepare a set (required number) of adjusting bodies 14, and it is not necessary to prepare many clubs with different specifications when changing the lie angle and loft angle, so it takes up space and transports. The handling becomes very convenient without any trouble. In practice, the face angle also changes in conjunction with the loft angle. For this reason, it is possible to make adjustments with an emphasis on the face angle.

An example of the set of the adjusting body 14 as described above is shown in FIG. FIG. 8A shows an additional adjustment body set. In this adjustment body set, the angle adjustment body 32 is stacked on the reference adjustment body 31 to adjust the thickness. That is, the adjustment body set includes a reference adjustment body 31 that sets a position in the rotation direction of the shaft 11 with respect to the head 12 and a plurality of adjustments for increasing and decreasing the angle of the head 12 with respect to the shaft 11 proportionally from the position. Angle adjustment body 32. By using such an adjustment body set, it is possible to correctly confirm the reference position and specifications, and it becomes easy to recognize the matching relationship between the change of the lie angle and loft angle from the reference and the swing of the customer who made the trial. .

  In this case, the reference adjusting body 31 may have a thickness larger than the pitch of the threaded portion. Moreover, two or more things having thickness larger than the pitch of a thread part may be contained. As a result, the adjustment body can be easily handled, and the head and shaft can be exchanged smoothly.

  As for the adjustment body set, FIG. 8B shows a separate adjustment body set, and this adjustment body set has the thickness of the reference adjustment body + angle adjustment body shown in FIG. 8A. May be formed integrally and prepared as separate bodies 33a to 33h for each thickness. Further, FIG. 8C illustrates a position where the adjustment body is not provided at only one point, and the adjustment body set is configured in the manner shown in FIG. 8A or FIG. good. Furthermore, since it is preferable for customer service to make the adjustment body easy to identify in appearance, it is preferable to carry out “color coding”, “mark the appearance surface”, and the like.

  Further, it is preferable to attach an identification design, that is, a mark, a mark, a character, or the like that can identify the direction of the angle between the central axis of the insertion region and the central axis of the shaft to an appropriate position of the shaft 11 or the head 12. By attaching the identification design in this way, it is possible to make the player understand the direction of the angle, and thus the setting conditions of the loft angle and the lie angle. The position of the identification design is preferably a position that can be seen when the head toe direction is viewed from the front so that the player can grasp the gripped position. Specifically, as shown in FIGS. 1 and 2, for example, the front part P1, the front part P2 in front of the grip, the front part P3 of the large diameter part 21 of the neck part 11a, or the front part of the hosel part 12g. It can be attached to P4 or the like. Or you may attach | subject an identification design to the position which shows the direction of the maximum or minimum inclination angle.

  Note that, as described above, the grip 13 has a shaft shape because the outer shape of at least the region actually gripped by the golfer (the region indicated by symbol R in FIG. 1A) is formed in a circular cross section. When 11 is rotated, the same gripping feeling (a gripping feeling that does not cause a sense of incongruity regardless of the position) is obtained at any position of 360 °. For this reason, the player can perform more appropriate evaluation.

  As described above, in the golf club according to the present embodiment, the tightening in the rotational direction by screwing and the positioning in the axial direction by the first receiving surface and the second receiving surface can be used even if used repeatedly. Wear can be prevented and a golf club with excellent durability can be realized. Further, by interposing the adjusting body 14 between the first receiving surface and the second receiving surface, the position of the head 12 and the rotation direction of the shaft 11 can be set in a desired direction, and withstand repeated use and accuracy. Can be maintained. Furthermore, since it can set to a desired direction by selection of the adjustment body 14, the exchange operation | work of the shaft 11 and the head 12 can be performed smoothly.
