rihis invention relates to golf clubs and Shank 12 which is flattened at its lower end has special reference to putters, the object portion,'as indicated at 13, whereby it may of the invention being to provide an eliibe inserted upwardly through the slot 9 cient club of such construction that the of the cover before the cover is placed upon 60 head may be easil adjusted for use by the hollow head-and have its shank engaged either a right hande or a left handed player in the threaded bore of the sleeve 2. `The -and may be also adjusted quickly and easily ylower end of the. shank is constructed with to suit any given lie. y rlrhe invention proa cross head 14 extending to lboth sides of vides means whereby the shaft may be disthe vshank and having its laterally extend'- 05 posed at various angles to the head and-may ing terminals. tapered upwardly to form also be shifted longitudinally of the head teeth adapted to engage between the teeth to suit the taste or fancy of any player and 11 on the ribs 1 0, it being noted uponreferwill be eliectually held in any set position ence to Fig. 2 that the taper of the teeth 15 so that the club may be used freely without is sharper than the taper of the teeth 11 70 l5. the elements being apt to be disassembled. whereby, under certain conditions, the shank` r1`hese stated objects, and other objects which with its crosshead may be rocked upon the will incidentally appear in the course of ribs 10,"llnterposed between the rib 'l' and the following description, are attained in the lower end of the sleeve 2 is a'wedge such a device as is illustrated in the accomor clamping memberl having a lower face 75 'sa panying drawing, and the invention resides adapted to rest lsquarely upon the ribs 7 in certain novel features which will be parand provided with transverse teeth 17. matticularly pointed out in the appended claims. ing with the teeth 8, as clearly shown in 1n the drawing: Figs. 1 and 2. Rising from the lower por- Fignre 1 is a perspective view of agolf tionpof this wedge or clamping member is 80 club embodying the invention, the greater an inclined hub 18, the 'bore 19 of which portion of the shaft being` broken away; is considerably greater in diameter than the Figf2 is a central .vertical longitudinal diameter of the shank 12 so that the said section of the same; f hub may surround the shank and at the saine c Fig. 3 is: a transverse section, and i time permit a limited relative angular move- 85 i Fig. 4 is a detail section on the linea-.at` ment of the shank. The lower end of the .age

The head i is a. hollow 2 and 3. metal casting which is preferably of the To assemble the parts, the shank 12 is in- `form now generally employed for putters, serted upwardly through the slot 9 in the the striking face 5 being fiat and slightly cover 6 and the wedge 16 is then fitted 95 inclined A. cover 6 is g secured upon the against the top of the cover withJ its hub hollow lhead 4 and corresponds thereto -in housing the upper portion of the shank. The shape so that the edges of the cover will be sleeve 2 is then engaged with. the projecting flush with-the corresponding surfaces of the threaded end of the shankl and is turned body of the head when the parts are ashome against the wedge sufficiently to hold .100 15 sembled. The' cover is provided on its upper the parts in their assembled relation. The side\with a longitudinally extending rib 7 cover-may then be placedupon the head of having transverse teeth 8 formed'in its upper the club and secured by screws, indicated at surface and having a central'vlongitudinal 21, in an obvious manner'. If the yparts are- A slot 9 terminating shortofits ends. On the assembled in the exactposition that the play-y 109i' under side ofthe cover at the sides of the er' desires, the shaft with the sleeve 2 mayv slot 9 are longitudinal ribs 10 having teeth be rotated so as to draw the teeth 15 of the y 11 formed transyersely in their lower edges, head 14J into close engagement with-the ribs` it being noted-upon reference to Fig. 3 that 10 and toclampthe wedge 16 uponthe cover. r ,Y the opposed surfaces pf these ribs are flush Theinterengaging relatlon of the teeth 11 mi with and form continuations of the walls of and 15 and the teeth 8 and 17 willthen very the slot 9.l Threaded into lthe sleeve 2 is a eifectually prevent shifting of the shaft if.

longitudinally of the head while the clamping .action of the crosshead 14 and the wedge upon the oppositecsu'rfaces of the cover will positively prevent detachment of the head from the shaft. Obviously, the

parts may be assembled so that the shaft will be at the center of the head or in front of or-behind the center. as may be preferred,

and in order to reverse the club so that it may be used by a'left handed player all that needs from the teethF 8 and the crosshead 14 lowto be done is to loosen the sleeve 2 to such aA `degree that the clamp 16 may be Withdrawnv ered sufficiently to clear the. teeth 11, where-` upon the head. may be swung in a horizontal plane y'between the clamp and the crosshead so that its striking face 5 will b e brought to the opposite side of the wedge and the crosshead, the parts bein then tightened in. the new position. The s aft may be set at any desired angle, within limits, so thatv it may approach more closely to the vertical or to the horizontal as may be -desired to suit the fancies of the player or `to adapt the club to any particular lie. To accomplish this result, the sleeve 20 is loosened lso that it may move freely across 'the upper end of the Wedge 16, whereupon the shaft and the shank 12 may be rocked about the edge of the tooth 15 as a center, as indicated lby the dotted,

lines in Fi 2, thesleeve 2 being then rotated about t e'threaded portion of the shank 12 to agair clamp the parts itogether.

My device is exceedingly simple in con"-l struction and may be very easily adjusted to cover a wide range ofe'onditions in'play.

Having thus .described my invention, I

- claim:

1. The combination-l of a head, a shaftfand' -tov clamp the shank andthe ing a bore greater than the diameter of the l intermediate shank whereby to ermitangular adjust-ment of the shank and t e shaft. 4

4. The combination of a'hollow head having a longitudinal slotI in itstop and provided with transverse teeth on the upper andlowersurfaces of its top, a s1 aft, a shank engaged with the shaft and pas ing through i the longitudinal slot in the head and rovided Dat its lower end with a member adapted to engage with the teeth on the under side of the top of the head, and an intermediate member disposed between the shaft and the head around the'shank, and providedin its lowerside with teeth engaging the teeth on the uppersurface of the top of the head.

5. .The combination of a hollow head hav.

in'g a longitudinal slot initstop and provided internall verse teeth, as aft, a shank playing in the longitudinal lslot of the headr and provided at its lower end with a cross-head tapered upwardly to engage the internal teeth of the head,'and an intermediate member provided on its underl surface with teeth engaging means adjustably connecting the shaft with" the head whereby the shaft may be set at a selected point in the length of the head. 2. The combination of a head, ashaft, a

i shank' connected with the shaft and engagethe external teeth of the head and having an inclined bore receiving the shank end of apprciably greater diameter than the, shank,- the shank having a vvthreaded engagement with the shaft.

In txstimony whereof I aflx my signature.
