ATTORNEY.

Patented Oct. 13, 1925.

UNITED STATES rm E. eannnas, or WALLA WALLA, wnsnme'ron.

eoLr own.

Application filed April 8 1925. Serial No. 21,235.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, FRED E. GANDERB, a

citizen of the United States, residin at Walla Walla, in the county of Walla alla and State of Washington, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Golf Clubs, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to adjustable golf clubs and has as one of its objects to provide a golf club that is adaptable to varying conditions of play.

Another object of the invention is to provide a golf club having an adjustable head that is so designed that ample bearing surface is provided to minimize wear and also to provide great rigidity to the parts.

l further object of the invention is to provide all 01f club that is constructed of few parts, having parts that are simple to construct and consequently cheap to manufacture, andthat is highly efiicient in operation and adjustment.

With these and other objects-in view reference is now had to the accompanying drawings in which 0 Fi 1' is a side elevation of the device, showing the parts assembled and ready for 1g. 2 1s a side elevation of the device, showing parts extended preparatory to adjustment; and I j Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the device, with part in section.

Having reference to the drawings like numerals refer to like parts throughout the several views and the numeral 1 refers to the shank of the club to which is integrallyattached a head 2.

The head is provided. with a conical shaped bearing portion 3' so designed as to provide a shoulder 4-. at its juncture with the head, the purpose of which will be presently explained.

The head and bearing portion contain an aperture 5 that extends therethrough to forrh an elongated bearing, and a toothed V recess 6 is formed in the head in a manner to be utilized as a continuation of said bear- The purpose of this construction is to providel a head having the bulk of the weight in continuation of the shank for balance, and for this reason the conical shaped bearing portion is tapered toward the outer end to reduce weight as much as possible at this point. At the same time this construction provides a proportionately large bearing that will overcome the slight wear that may accrue and yet stand the excessive jar occurring when the blade 7 (which is seated in the bearing) strikes its object.

The blade is provided with a toothed ele- I menrt 8 from which an elongated shank 9 extends, the two parts being integral and positioned concentrically, and are designed to slidingly register with the bearin and the toothed recess 6, and to be rotata 1c in the bearing when the toothed element is withdrawn from the toothed recess.

The shank 9 is of a length to extend beand, also. ro-vides a shoulder 12 between which an the shoulder 4 is mounted a. spring 13 that normally maintains the toothed element in engagement with the toothed recess. I

In use the blade 7 is disengaged from the head by pressing the stop 11 and when the toothed element is withdrawn, as shown in I ig, 2, the blade is rotated to the proper adj ustment.

The blade is then released and the spring automatically returns the element into the recess when the club is ready for use.

It will now be noted that with the conical extension :1. large bearing is obtained and that when the toothed parts are engaged the bearing extends throughout the length of the head and bearing portion and form's a very strong union of the parts;,that there are few parts to the device; and that the parts are of simple construction.

Having thus described my invention, I claim:

1. In a golf club, a head, said head being provided with an extended bearing portion and containing an aperture through sai head and bearing portion to form an elongated bearing therein, a toothed recess formed in said head andproviding a continuation. of said bearing, a blade provided with a toothed element and an elon ated shank, said toothed element and shank being slidably registerable with said bearing and continuation thereof, and rotatable in said bearing when the toothed element is Withdrawn from register with the toothed recess, a stop attached to said shank, and a yielding means o-perably mounted on said bearing portion between said head and said stop.

2. In a golf club, the combination of a head, said head being-provided with an extended conical bearing portion, and containing an aperture through said head and bearing portion to form an elongated bearing therein, and providing a shoulder at the juncture of the head and bearing portion, a toothed recess formed in said head, said recess forming a continuation of said bear-- ing, a blade provided with a toothed element and an elongated shank, said toothed element and shank being slidably registerable with said bearing and continuation thereof, and rotatable in said bearing when the toothed element is withdrawn from register with the toothed recess, a stop attached to said shank, and a yielding means oper l ably mounted on said conical bearing portion between said shoulder and said stop. In testimony whereof I affix my signature.

FRED E. GANDERS.
