UNITED STATES BERNHABD'M. BEKOW, OF MIAMI, FLORIDA.
GOLF-STROKE REGISTER.
Application filed January 14, 1921 T all whom it may conoem:
Be it known that I, BERNHARD M. BnsKow, a citizen of the United States, residing at Miami, in the county of Dade and State of Florida, have invented or'discovered certain new and useful Improvements in Golf- Stroke Registers, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
This invention relates to a golf stroke register comprising means for indicating the strokes for each hole, as also the total number of strokes for the entire course, the number of the particular hole being played, and also preferably the number of holes won by each individual layer in a match game. The improved go f stroke register is preferably adapted to be attached by a strap to the wrist of the player so as to be conveniently 8.0(8SSlbl8 for use, and eliminates the necessity of a score card and pencil.
In the accompanying drawings Fig. 1 is a plan view of the improved register showing also a wrist strap. Fig. 2 is a partly broken out plan view of the same with the top casing removed. "Figs. 3,4, 5, and 6 are sections of the improved register on lines 3-3, 4-4, 55 and 6-6, respectively, of Fig. 2, with'the top cover in place. Figs. 7, 8, 8', 8 and 9 are enlarged diagrammatic views illustrating the operation of the automatic tripping device. Fig. 9' is a detail yiew of the operating device for the registering dial which indicates the strokes for each hole. Fig. 10 is a plan view of another form of the invention. Fig. 11 is a central longitudinal horizontal section of the same on an enlar d scale. Fig. 12 is a side view of the same ookin from the top of Fig. 11 (bot tom up) wit the casing in section. Fig. 13 is a partly sectional view looking from the bottom of Fig. 11. Fig. 14 is a side view looking from the top of Fig. 11 with the casings in section and showing the relative position of the tripping lugs and tripping arms and slots in the outer casing part to permit the telescoping of the two casing parts.
Referring to the drawings, and more particularly to Figs. 1 to 9', inclusive, 12 denotes the upper part of the casing and 13 the lower part thereof. The casingpart comprises side walls one of which encircles the other, the outer casing art being rovided with lugs 14 which are nt over t e lower casing part to hold the two parts together. The lower casing part is preferably provided Serial H0. 437,198.
with struck-out bars 15 adapted to receive a wrist stra 11.
Mounte on a spindle or arbor 17 is a registering dial 16, said arbor having a bearing at one end in a boss 18 struck up from the lower casing part 13. The dial 16, which is intended to register the number of strokes for each hole, is provided with a series of figures which are arranged to be brought respectively into view through an opening 24: 1n the upper casing part 12. The dial 16 is preferably formed as a ratchet wheel so that it may be manually moved forward to the extent of one tooth or one number after each stroke by means of a lever 19 pivoted on a boss 18 and having a raised portion 20 provided with a sprin pawl 21 adapted to engage the teeth of tEe ratchet wheel dial 16. The part 20 of the lever 19 extends outward through a slot 22 in the casing, and the said lever is returned to its normal position by a retracting spring 25. Backward movement of the ratchet wheel dial 16 is prevented by a spring pawl-16 struck out from the casin After each stroke, or each penalty, t e dial 16 will be advanced one number by operating the lever 19 and 20, thus causing a new number to show through the opening 24 in the casin part 12, and as the said lever is returned y its retracting 5 ring 25 a sharp click will be produced as t e spring pawl 21 dro s into a new tooth of the ratchet wheel of t e said dial.
The arbor 17 is mounted for endwise movement in the casing of the register, being pressed u ward or outward by a spring 27, the said arbor having a bearing at its upper end in the cap 26 slidingly mounted in a raised portion of the top casing part.12.
Fastened to the arbor 17 is an arm 29 which cooperates with an arm 30 pivoted on a boss 31 concentric with an arbor 32 having a bearing in said boss and carrying a registering dial 37 formed as a ratchet wheel and rovided with a series of numerals, 0 to 1 inclusive, and which may be made to appear successively through an opening 37' in the top casing art 12, the numeral of said dial 37 which is visible denoting the number of the hole of the eighteen holes of the course which is being played. The arm 30 carries a spring pawl 33 en in the teeth of the ratchet wheel disk fi sai arm being yieldingly mounted relative to the ratchet disk 37 so that when the stroke ratchet disk 16 is rotated backwards or'counter-clockwise, in resetting, and the arm 28 engages said arm 30, the latter will yield slightly, but not to the extent of a ratchet-tooth on the disk 37; thus permittin the said arm 28 to pass by the end of saic? arm 30. At the next forward movement of the disk 16 by the operating lever 19, 20, to register the first stroke of a new hole, the said arm will engage the arm 30 which, through its pawl 33, will now advance the disk 37 to the extent of one member which will indicate the number of the new hole being played. The arm 30 is retracted after each forward movement by a spring 35. The arbor 32 is mounted for endwise movement in its bearings in the casing, being held yieldingly upward by a spring 31, and the said arbor may be depressed in opposition to the stress of said spring by a cap 39 slidingly mounted in a raised portion of the upper casing part 12 and in which said arbor has a bearing at its upper end.
Connected with the arbor 17 is a torsional spring 42 (Fig. 6) having a tendency to rotate said arbor counter-clockwise when the dial 16 is to be reset. The arbor 32 is also provided with a similar spring 43 (Fig. 5) intended for resetting the dial 37. Backward movement of the dial 37 is prevented by a spring pawl 38 struck out from the casing.
Mounted on the arbor 17 is a gear wheel 44 whichmeshes with another similar gear wheel 45 on an arbor 46 mounted for endwise movement in its bearings in a boss on the casing and in a cap 46 slidingly mounted in a raised portion of the upper casing art 12, by virtue of a' spring 54 interposed .tween the boss in which the lower end of said arbor is journalled and a collar 55 attached to said arbor. Secured to the arbor 46 is a ratchet dial 47 having a series of numerals, 0 to 9, inclusive, which can be made to show successively through an opening 48 in the upper casing part 12. A torsional spring 50 is attached to the arbor 46 and has a tendency to rotate said arbor counter-clockwise, backward movement of said arbor under the stress of said spring being prevented by a pawl 49 struck out from the casing and engaging the teeth of the ratchet dial 47.
Fixed to the arbor 46 is a toothed sector arranged to engage a gear wheel 61 at each rotation of the said arbor 46. The gear wheel 61 is fixed to an arbor 63 to which is also fixed a ratchet dial 62 provided with a series of numerals from 0 to 9, inelusive. The numerals on the dial 47 denote units. while the numerals on the dial 62 denote tens, and the dial 62 will be ad winced one number at each rotation of the dial 4-7 by virtue of the sector 55, the
numerals of the two dials being read together, as shown in Fig. 1, to denote the total score. Backward movement of the dial 62 is prevented by a pawl 62'. The arbor 63 has a bearing at its lower end in a boss 64 formed on the casing part 13 while its upper end has a bearing in a sliding cap 65 mounted in a raised portion of the upper casing part 12. Said arbor is adapted for endwise movement by virtue of a spring 67 yieldin 1y holding the said arbor upward. Connecte with the arbor 63 is a torsional spring 68 having a tendency to rotate the said arbor counter-clockwise.
The dial 47 is automatically reset to prevent too much winding up of the torsional spring 50. when it has performed nearly a rotation, by being tripped in passing from 9 to 0 on the dial. To this end the dial is provided with lugs 59 in which is pivotally mounted a hub 60 carryin a tripping arm 59 and a setting arm 60. S truck downward from a raised portion of the upper casing part 12 is a tripping lug 57 adapted, in the rotation of the said dial. to. be engaged by the tripping arm 59, as denoted in Figs. 7 and 9, such engagement of said arm with said lug turning the arm 60 upward from the position shown in Fig. 7 to the position shown in Fig. 8, thereby depressing the dial 47 against the stress of the spring 54 on the arbor 46, thus disengaging the gear wheel 45 from the gear wheel 44, and also moving the sector 55" below the plane of the gear wheel 61. This de ressing movement of the arbor 46 also carries the ratchet dial out'b'f engagement with its holding pawl 49, thereby leaving the arbor 46 free to be turned backward or rotated clockwise under the stress of the torsional spring 50. The arm 60 has a shoulder at its top which moves against the under side of the raised part of the top plate 12 as the ratchet dial 47 turns backward. until in the backward rotation of said dial, the said arm 60 comes into contact with av lug 58 struck downward from the top plate 12 as denoted in Fig. 8, this contact of said arm with said lug turning said arm from the position denoted in Fig. 8 to the position denoted in Fig. 8", thus permitting the dial 47 to be moved upward by the stress of the spring 54 and thereby returning the parts to their normal positions.
All of the other dials of the register are provided with resetting devices cooperating with lugs struck out from the top plate of the casing, similar to the resetting arms and lugs just above described, so that should any of the dials have performed a complete. or nearly complete, rotation without having been manually reset, as will presently be described, they will be automatically returned to their normal positions. This automatic resetting of the dials will, it will be understood, prevent too much winding up of the torsional returning springs connected to thearbors of all of said dials.
Separated from the other dials, and in no way partakin of their movements, is another dial '7 2 ormed as a ratchet wheel and provided, as herein shown, with a series of numerals from tot), inclusive, said ratchet dial being engaged by a pawl 72 struck up from the casing, said pawl serving to prevent backward rotation of said dial. This dial 72, the numerals of which may bemade to successively appear through an opening 85 in the upper casing part 12, is intended to register the number of holes won by an individual player in a match game. At each hole won by said player the dial will be rotated to the extent 0 one number by means of a lever 74 having a spring pawl 76, said lever extending outward through a slot in the casing and the walls of which slot limit its movements. After having been moved forward to partially rotate the dial 72 the said lever will be retracted by means of' a spring 74 This lever for rotating the dial 72 is similar in construction to the lever 19. 20, hereinbefore described for manually rotating the dial 16, said lever 74 being pivoted on a boss 75 on the casing and in which boss the arbor 73, carrying the dial 72. has a bearing at its lower end, said arbor being adapted for endwise movement by virtue of the spring 79 interposed between said boss and a collar 80 fixed to said arbor. The arbor 73 has a bearing at its upper end in a cap 77 slidingly mounted in a raised portion of the upper plate 12; and connected with the arbor 73, and having a tendency to rotate the same in a clockwise direction, is a torsional spring 84. When it is desired to reset the dial 72 the arbor 73 will be depressed by pushing in the cap 77 thus lowerin the dial- 72 out of engagement with its hol ing pawl 72 and permitting the torsional spring 84 to turn the said dial back to zero, the return movement of said-dial being arrested by a lug 58 operating in connection with a stopping arm 60.
In the use of this improved register the dial 16 will be advanced one number by the manual operation of the lever 19, 20, after each stroke, and the dial 37 will be advanced one number after each re-setting movement of the said dial 16. as hereinbefore explained As is hereinbefore indicated the total score for the course will be registered by the two dials 62 and 47, the former dial indicating tens and the latter units, while the hole of the course which is being played will be registered by the dial 37, and the number of strokes for the each hole pla ed will be registered by the dial 16. us after a hole has been completed, the cap 26 will be depressed, thus freeing the ratchet dial 16 from its holding awl 16 and also disengaging the gear whee l 44 from the gear wheel 45 thereby freein the arbor 17 so as to permit it to be rotate backward or counter-clockwise by the torsional spring 42 until the dial isstopped by an engagement of an arm 59 on said dial with a stopping lug 57 as denoted in Fig. 8 in connection with the dial 47; all the otherdialsbeing stopped in a similar manner after having been manually or automatically depressed for resetting. a
In the form of my invention shown in Figs. to 14, inclusive, the numerals, in stead of being placed on the faces of the registering dials, are placed on the peripheries thereof, and in these views illustrating this other form of my invention the arts corresponding to the parts shown in igs. 1 to 9 inclusive, and performing the same functions, are denoted by similar numerals so-as to facilitate a clear understanding of this other 'form of my invention without repetition of descri tion. In this other form of the invention sliown in Figs. 10 to 14, inclusive, as the gear wheels 44 and 45 are separated from each other, an idler gear 63*, revolving freely on the arbor 63, is interosed between the gears 44 and 45. This idler gear 63" is mounted on the shaft 6.3 between a washer 63" and a collar 63. Also in this other form of my invention the match score dial 72 is mounted on a sleeve shaft 73" into which one end of the shaft 46 extends, a coil spring 54 being inter d between the inner end of said sleeve 73 and the sector gear 55* on the shaft 46 to hold the parts in place and permit the caps 77 and 46 to be pressed inward in resetting the dials. To operate the dial 37 a sector gear'28 is fastened to arbor 17 and said sector engages a gear wheel 34 on the arbor 32 to artially turn the same arbor and the hole dial 37 mounted thereon at the proper intervals.
With the exceptions noted all of the parts in Figs. 10 to 14, inclusive, are similar to and perform the same functions in the same manner as the parts denoted by similar numerals in FigsQl to 9, inclusive.
From the foregoing it will be understood that the register comprises a dial '16 for registering the strokes of each hole of the course, dials 47 and 62 for registering the total score of the course, a dial 37 for denoting which of the holes of the course is being played, and a dial 72 for denoting the number of holes which have been won by an individual player in a match game. In reading the register as the numerals are shown in Figs. 1 and- 10 it will be understood that 4 strokes have been registered for the 16th hole of the course, and that the total score so far is 68. The match game dial 72 denotes that 9 holes have been won by the player carrying the register.
Havin thus described m invention I claim and desire to secure by tters Patent:
1. In a golf stroke register, the combination with a suitable casing, of a single dial within said casing for registering the number of strokes for each hole of the course, and dials, geared to said firstnamed means, for registering the total score of the course, the indicating numerals on these various dials being so located as to be all visible at one face of said casing.
