Application led .T une 24, 1916. Serial No. 105,554.

To all whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, PATRICK H. LYNCH, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city o'f New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and4 State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Golf-Club, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description. .Y

This invention relates to golf clubs and it has to deal particularly with improvements in the construction of the shaft.

The general object of the invention is to provide an improved golf stick in which .the shaft is of novel design, conducive to the perfect balance of the shaft in the hands of the golfer and to the proper whip action, these results being attained by providing in the shaft adjacent the handle, a longitudinal split, the plane of which is parallel with the striking face of the head, and in this split is set a filling of rubber or other resilient material, and in the butt of the shaft is a weight which insures the proper balance.

For a more complete understanding of the invention reference is to be had to the following description and claims, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, which illustrates one embodiment of the invention and wherein similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views. i

Figure l is a plan view of the improved golf stick; Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section on the line 2 2, Fig. 3; Fig. 3,is a longitudinal section on the line 3-3, Fig. 2; and Fig. 4 is a transverse section on the line 4-4, Fig. 2.

Referring to the drawing, A designates the shaft of the golf stick, B the head and C the handle. The head may be of any desired form, as the invention is applicable to all types of golf sticks. The shaft A is provided with a longitudinal slot 1 which lies partly within the handle and extends therefrom toward the head for a few inches from the handle. This slit extends entirely through the shaft from one side to the other and lies in a plane parallel with the striking face 2 of the head B. This slit adds resiliency to the shaft and confines its whip back and forth in the plane of the stroke and prevents any whip in a vertical plane or parallel to the striking face. In the slit 1 is a filling of rubber 3 or equivalent resilient material. This strip 3 is anchored by forming the end of the slit nearest the head with a V-shaped key 4 which itsinto anotch 5 in the rubber strip. The inner end of the rubber strip lies within the handle lwhich is formed in the usual manner by a helically wound piece of leather fastened at its ends by a suitable binding 6 and 7. The rubber may also be further secured by cementing it in the slit of the shaft.

To improve the balance of the stick a ferrule or cap 8 is ittedto the butt end of the shaft, and in this cap is a suitable quantity of lead 9 or equivalent materia-l. The fer-v rule is overlaid with leather of which the handle is made. By the use of this weight the golfer can obtain a perfect balance of the club in his hands by moving his hands up or down on the grip or handle. The advantage of the club being` thus balanced is that it puts a weight in the hands, enabling the proper pulling through, it keeps the hands down and out from the body and prevents the hands from pulling through before the head of the club or the pulling of the head of, the club through before the hands, as the head of the club travels in a straight line with the hands and makes it almost impossible to slice or hook the ball if the stance is right. By reason of the manner of balancing, the club has a lighter feel in the hands than an ordinary club, and it lis possible to swing with greater force and more safety in hitting a ball straight, and a greater distance is obtained because the momentum pushes the hands straight through. The slotted handle insures a oneway whip, that is,vin the direction the ball is driven. Furthermore, the shock when hitting a ball is taken up and it saves the club.

from breaking at the head.

From the foregoing description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, the advantages of the construction and method of operation will be readily understood by those skilled inthe art to which .the invention appertains, and while-I have described the principle of operation, together with the article which I now consider to be the best embodiment thereof, I desire to have it understood that the article shown is merely illustrative and that such changes may be made when desired as fall Within the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:

1. A golf club including a head and a shaft connected therewith, said shaft being slotted longitudinally adjacent its handle portion, and the slot being substantially parallel with the striking face of the head.

2. A golf club including a head and a shaft connected therewith, said shaft being slotted longitudinally adjacent its handle portion,` andv ther slot being substantially parallel with the striking face of the head, and a weight in the butt of the shaft.

3. A golf club comprising a head and a shaft connected therewith, said shaft being longitudinally slotted in a plane approximately parallel with the plane of the head,

and a resilient insert in said slot, the slot of the shaft extending from a point adjacent 20 the middle thereof to the handle portion.

' 4. A golf club comprising ahead and a shaft connected therewith, said shaft being longitudinally slotted in a plane approximately parallel with the plane of the head, 25

4 a resilient insert in said slot, and a weight in place.
