G. VON DER HEYDE GOLF CLUB Filed April 12, 1928 Patented Oct. 2, 1928.

UNITED STATES I GEORGE vou on: HEYDE, or

coir Application filed A ril 12,

This invention has reference to golf clubs, and has for its main objectto provide vthe golf player with an emergency device in the formof an umbrella, that is carried inthe;

5 caddy bag with the usual assortment of 'golf clubs, and which is disguised by simulating a regular golf club of some form in general use.

A further object of the invention is to. I combine a golf club, such as a putter, with an umbrella, so that the putter will have its usual operation, and then whenneeded, the umbrella is simply removed from the club shaft and brought into use by the player.

In the accompanying drawing, showing an embodiment of the invention Figure 1 is perspective view.

Fig. 2 is a similar view, partly in section.

Fig. 3 shows the umbrella'detached. 1

Fig. 4 shows the'upper end of the shaft.

Fig. 5 shows a portlon of the shaft, enlarged.

In playing the game of golf, it is not deemed in good form or sportmanlike to carry a regular umbrella, inthe caddy bag,

or along with the player; and as the game is often played inuncertain weather, a sudden shower or hard rain is sometimes encountered when .the player is some considerable distance from any form of shelter,

so that the player is liable toreat danger to health, by being drenched be ore a shelter or protection from the storm can be reached, that not infrequently results in the player contracting a severe cold, or influenza or even pneumonia may result. The urpose of-the present invention is to provide an umbrella that as carried has all the appearances ofv a' regular golf club, and can be carried in the customary caddy bag with the other clubs, and which when a rain 'comes up, can be quickly and easily brought into use to protect the player.

' While the device may be a mere dummy club to be used simply as an umbrella, 1t may be combined with a regular golf club in such form. as to not interfere with the 1 normal use and function of the club. This may be most readily effected, with a light form of, club, such as the putter, that is given a short light swing to merely roll the .ball into a near y pocket or hole.

In the arrangement shown in the drawing, the club comprises a shaft 5, somewhat taper-- ing of tubular form that carries the putter head 6 at the lower end. This shaft for the PATENT, OFFICE.

mourcmm, NEW JERSEY.

1928. Serial 1T0. 269,332.

larger. portion of its length from the upper .open end 7, down to the portion .8, is tubular with a very thin wall, preferably of steel.

In this chambered shaft is inserted an umbrella, that is specially designed to slide into such comparatively small space. As shown this comprises a stem 10,- with usual ribs 12 and Spreaders 13, and a cover 14, and, the usual stem extension 15. These parts close together in very small compact form, so that this member can be rolled up and slid into the tubular or chambered portion of the shaft. The stem extension 15 of the umbrella is received in the socket portion 16 of the shaft, that is shape, as shown.- I

At the upper end of the umbrella the stem 10 is rigidly and permanently secured to a head 17, in the form of a short plug adapted to snugly fit into the open end 7 of the shaft given a corresponding 5; and this head is shown provided with a ,top flange 18, that will limit the movement of the head into the shaft, by engaging the.

edge or end of the shaft.

Suitable securing means are provided between the umbrella'head and the shaft end, and as shown lugs 19 on the head. 17 engagel ba onet slots 20 in the edge of the shaft.

y this means the umbrella is securely retained in the tubular shaft of the golf club.

and the flange and head of the umbrella make theusual form of club end or top; and the extension stem 15 of the umbrella will fit snugly in the socket at 16, so that the umbrella is tightly held in theshaft ;.and the extension 15 serves to provide the needed weight or balance for in use.

A. club of this character resembles very the swing of the club I closely the usual putter, and will have the same qualities and functions, when :the umbrella is needed, the head 17 is merely turned and drawn out to remove the um brella from the shaft, and whena complete umbrella is provided for useby. the player.

What I claim is 1. A golf clubprovided with a head and a. tubular shaft, and an umbrella comprising a stem with ribs Spreaders and cover, which is arranged to slide into thetubular shaft, a short head secured to the up er end of the umbrella stem and having a g taining engagement with the end of the tubular shaft, the shaft being provided with a reduced bore at the lower portion adapted toreceive the stem extension beyond the cover etachable re--- to assist in weighting the club whereby a shoulder is provided a ainst which the central portion of the um rella body seats, the end of the umbrella shaft being smaller than the reduced bore and shorter than said bore whereby to lie free from the walls and end of the reduced bore.

2. A golf club comprising a shaft of thin tubular form with a striking head on the smaller end, and an umbrella consisting of a.

which is arranged to slide into and out of day of April, 1928. stem with ribs Spreaders and a. cover and the said tubular shaft, the umbrella stem being provided at the free end with: a short head arranged to slide partly into the upper open end of the said tubular shaft and-provided-with locking means to removably and rigidly hold the umbrella inside of the club and to permit the normal use of the club with the umbrella concealed therein Signed at New York, N. Y., this 11th GEORGE i'oNnnR HEYDE.
