I

Fig. 1 is .a side elevation of a golf club The plate 11 is also somewhat tapered transconstructed in accordance with my invenversely and-the facethereof provided with tion, parts thereof being broken away to angular'grooves 15 to'form a putter face, illustrate the interior, and from the above description it will be Fig. 2 is an end elevation and I readily apparent that I have, provided a Fig. 3 is a transverse section on the line new and improved golf club which embodies 3-3 of Fig. 1. l two well-known forms of club heads and In carrying out my invention the head wherein the handle member which is atcomprises a substantially rectangular body tached' to the head may, be quickly and 1 having a centrally disposed recess 2 andv readily adjustedso that the club may be extending transversely of this recess is a used by either a right-hand or left-hand bearing stud 3 upon which the head- 1, as person. clearly illustrated in Fig. 1, is formed in- Attention is directed to the fact wherein tegral with the lower end of a socket 6 into it willbe noted that suitable stop shoulders V which'the handle 5 is fitted. The head 1 '16 are formed at the outer ends of each of of the handle is provided with two flat faces the inclined faces 7, said stop shoulders en- 7 extending at opposite angles to each other gaging the upper wall'of the recess 2 during and adapted to bear against a flat spring the rotating movement of the head .41 in member 8 which is normally bored as shown order to limit the rotated movement of the in Fig. 1 with its ends mounted for sliding head in either direction. From this it will be apparent that when the handle is moved with respect to the head 1, it Will be retained in its proper balancing position withrespect to the head by means of the engagement of the. shoulder 16 withthe upper wall of the recess 2 upon opposite sides of the opening 17 through which the socket 6 projects.

WVhile I have shown and described the preferred embodiment of my invention, it

cluding a recessed head portion, a movable handle head confined in the recess of the head portion and having bearing surfaces extending in opposite angular directions and having portions engaging the recessed head portion limiting movement of the handle, and retaining means adapted for engagement with the bearing surfaces.

2. A golf club including a body head having one side thereof recessed and the other side provided with an inclined face, a removable plate normally closing the open side of the recess and having an outer inclined face, a studin the body extending transversely ofthe recess, a handle member having its inner end rotatably mounted upon said stud, flat faces on the inner end of the handle member extending in opposite direction and means carried by the head and engaging said faces to retain the handle member in predetermined adjusted positions. I

3. A golf club including a head having one side thereof recessed and inclined on the opposite side, a detachable plate normally closing the recess and having an in- "clined outer face,-a movable handle having portion confined in the recess and having bearing surfaces extending in opposite I angular directions and havlng portions engaging the head limiting movement of the handle, and. retaining means adapted for engagement with the bearing surfaces.

i. A golf club including a head body having one side thereof recessed, a detachable plate normally closing the open side of the i recess, a stud extending transversely of the recess, a handle member having head rotatably mounted upon the stud, flat faces on the head disposed at opposite angles to each other, means carried by the head body for yieldable engagement with the faces whereby to retain the handle member in predetermined adjusted positions and means for limiting the rotative movement of the handle of the head on the stud.

5. A golf club of the class described including a recessed head portion having opposite slots formed therein and having a bearing portion traversing the recess, a

handle having portion confined in the recess and having pivotal connection to the bearing portion and having flat faces extending in opposite angular directions, and a resilient retaining member having end portions slidably engaging the slots and having portions adapted for engagement with the faces.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
