PATENT oFFIcE.v

WILLIAM KINNEAR, 0F SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN, CANADA.

GOLF CLUB.

Application led January 31, 19521. i Serial No. 441,389.

To all whomz't may concern:

Beit known that I, VILLIAM KINNEAR, a subject of the King of Great Britain, and resident of the city of Saskatoon, in the Province of Saskatchewan and Dominion of Canada, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Golf Clubs, of which 'the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in golf clubs, particularly to weighted wooden clubs, and the objects of the invention are to improve the distribution ofthe weighting of the club to thereby assist the player in preventing a sliced or pulled ball and to provide improved and simple means for securing the weight in position and to provide an improved construct-ion for the striking face of the club and it consists essentially of a club having ately behind the face thereof and secured in position by the improved means described hereinafter in the accompanying specitication and drawings.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a front elevation of the head of a golf stick embodying the ,present invention.

Figure 2 is a vertical-sectional View taken at right angles to Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a front elevation of an alternative form of the invention.

Figure 4 is a sectional detail along the line of Figure 3,

In the drawings, like characters of reference indicate correspondingparts in all the figures. v

Referring to the drawings- A represents the wooden head of any usual or desirable design, which shall be connected to the shank and handle, not shown, in thel l usual way.

10 indicates the face of one side of the head and 11 indicates acylindrical weight having engagement with a cylindrical recess 12 leading from the face 10, the weight being retained in position by means of a bolt 13 extending transversely through the head and having screw threaded engagement with the weight, or being held by screws through a sole member threaded into the weight, the weight being provided on its innermost side with a plurality of lead or fibre washers 14 and being formed at its outer end with a cylindrical and annular screw threaded recess l5, ladapted to receive a facing member 16 preferably constructed of fibre.

To prevent any loose playof the face plate 16 and to increase or decrease the weight of the club headwithout altering its form, a plurality of washers 17 are provided located in an annular recess 18 inthe weighted memformed with grooves 20. the weight positioned immedi- 22 indicates the fibre sole member inset at the bottom of the head A, being retained in position by suitable means such as screws 23. The fibre face 16 may also be held in adjusted inner position by means of screws 24 extending through the outer surface of the weighted member.

In the alternative form of the invention shown in Figures 3 and 4, the construction of the weight member and-fibre face member is the same, but an additional outer face member 25 is provided to fit into a dove tail groove 26 in the face of the club and-extending from top to bottom thereofsurroun'ding the edge of the weight member, and the member 16,being retained in position by suitable means such as fibre pins or pegs 27 y and 28.

In Figure 2, the line of the shaft is indicated by the line y-y'and it will be seen Y that the club will thus be weighted on the line of the shaft and nearer to the face of the club than at presentpracticed. Experience has shown that this mode of weighting willreduce theslicing and pulling of the ball in driving. l

As many changes couldbe made in the above construction and many widely different embodiments of my invention within the scope of the claims, constructed without departing from the spirit or scopethereof, it is intended that all matter contained in the accompanying specification and drawings shall be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

What I claim as my invention is:

A golf club of the character described comprising ahead, a cylindrical recess therein, a cylindrical weight in screw-threaded engagement With said recess, means for retaining the Weight in position comprising a bolt extending transversely through ther head and in screw-threaded engagement With the Weight, a plurality of Washersl for the innermost side of the Weight, an annular screw-threaded recess in the outer end of said weight adapted to receive a facing member, means for adjusting the Weight of the club head including an annular recess in the WILLIAM KINNEAR.
