UNITED :STATES PATENT OFFICE.

STERLING D. ROSAN, OF BOSTON, MASSACHUSE'JITS.`

GOLF-.CLUB GRIP.

appucanon flied February 1s, 192s, sei-iai No. 255,258.

in advance of the club head as the ball is struck, ,(5) to lose balance in the swing, and to fail to time the swing properly. More particularly the objects of the invention vare- ;to correct the tendency of the righthand to assume too much control of the club and `to confine the grip of the club by the right. 4hand largely to'those fingersv more remote from the thumb.

According to this invention the end of the `foreflinger of the right hand (and preferably of each .of the `first tuvo lingers) is held away from the club Ishaft so that the linger can not grip the shaft,whereby the righthand is restrained from assuming more than its proper share of the control of the club and the grip of the club is largely confined to a shorter length of the club, namely, the fingers of the left hand Vand only a portion of the fingers of the right hand. instead of all the fingers of both hands. rl`he aforesaid forcnger is held away from the club by means projecting from the club, preferably the surface of a member which is de tachable from theclub rather than integral therewith. To counteract the torque applied to the club by theforelinger bearing on this surface, tending to rotate the club about its axis, an oppositely directed surface is preferably provided for the thumb of the right hand, the'latter surface also preferably being disposed on the detachable part. ferred embodiment these surfaces are located on opposite sides of a flexible clip adapted y to grip the club, the central portion of the clip engaging the club and the free ends of the clip engaging the finger and thumb, this arrangement being more convenient and effective than the reverse arrangement in which the ends of the clip griprthe club and the central portion projects upwardly from the shaft between the finger and thumb.

For the purpose of illustration 'I have shown one concrete. embodimentof the `invention in the accompanying drawings, in which:

flange 2 engaging the thumb `and the `flan 4turne d lip i' In the pre- Fig. lis aperspectiveview of the preferred i embodiment of the invention gripped around the shaft of a golf club by the right hand;

F 1g. 2 is a perspective view of the same embodiment; and

Fig. 3 is a cross section of the applied to a golf club.

The particular embodiment of the invention chosen for the purpose of illustration is preferably,formed of flexible'celluloid in the shape shown in the drawings, that is, having' a `U-shape central portion l adapted tofiil. around thergolf club shaftand two flanges project-ing tangentially from the club, the

3 engaging the forelingerfat the lip il and awo preferably engaging the second finger at the 4 o0 embodiment j lip 45. As shown in Fig. l thefflange 2 preferably extends substantially the whole length or thet-humb and, as shown in Fig. 3, Vthis lflange lis preferably curved outwardly to fit the contour ofthe thumb. Vhile the lips and 5 mayA be formed as a continuous single lip, the portion between the two fingers is not essential and therefore is preferably omitted as indicated by the depression 5 in Fig. 2. The finger flange' may also'have an but at the rear end to fit the contour of the second linger and to lie between the endsof the second and third fingers, thereby serving more readily to position the grip in the hand. The normal diameter of the semicircular portion l may be somewhat more or less than or equal to the diameter of the shaft but it is preferably somewhat less than the diameter so that the flexibleclip will snap over the shaft and remain in posif an integral part of the club, as for example by permanently attaching the grip to the club, the clip is preferably unattached' to the club so that it may be used interchangeably upon any club vof a set.` It will be understood of course that while the clip is preferably flexible it offers sufficient resistance to fiexure to `holdthe ends of the lingers awa \v from the flub when gripped with any rea:;onahle degree of pressure.

ln use the elub is gripped with the device in the position shown in Fig. l so that the {i1-. 11 two lingers on the right hand are held, at their outer ends, away fron) the shaft, whereby the right hand is restrained from taking' too inueh control front the left hand and the elective zgrip oi the club is shortened to ai'ord more lexibilit)7 and less Constraint in the sawing. both baeliwardl)7 and 'forwardly. lt'hile the device maxv be used indefinitely it; is intended to be used only until the le lit hand and arin are trained to aesulne their Iproper share in the swing and control ol the. club.

l clailn:

11. golf club grip comprising ineana projecting troni the shaft of the club to provide a surlaee for the thuinb of the right hand and an oppositel)rv directed Snrlaee for holding the l'oreinger of the right hand away iiroin the fzhalt; thatl portion ot the linger Surface en gagged by the end ot the lioretinger being spat-cd farther awa)7 from the axis of the whaift then the Surface engaged by the middle ol the forelinger.

2. A golf club grip comprising a Clip curved to lit the club shaft and haring oppositelv directed surfaces for the thumb and foi-einiger respectively of the right hand so thatl pressure on said surfaces clamps; the grip to the shaft, the surface for the forelinger extending tanggenlially troni the shaft to hold the end of the linger a way troni the lahal'l.

55. A golf club g'rip eoxnprisincY a flexible clip havingT its central portion curved to lit: the club shaft and having end portionhl presenting oppositelv directed Surfaces for the thunib and foreling'er respectivelyY ol the rightl hand ao that pressure on Said end po1 tionsY tends to clamp the central portion around the shalt, one olf said end port ions extending tangentially troni the shaft, to hold the end of Said linger away Vl'roin the Shaft.

la all `olli club grip eoniprifning mean#l projectinj?T troni the shaft. ol the club to provide a surface t'oi the thumb of the right hand and an oppositely directed surface for holding;l the end oli the lorelinger ol' the right hand farther a :ay -from the Shaft; than the base oi. said linger, that portion oli the finger surface engaged by the end of the torelinger being spaced farther awa)v from the axis ot' the shalt: than the Surface engaged by the middle ot the 'loi'eling r.

A golf club grip eon'iprising a flexible clip shaped to straddlc the shalt of a golf club and to engage the shaft loosely 5o as tio be readily removable therefrom, the clip having;r a flange projecting tangentially troni the lahaft, whereby a part of the hand is held away troni the shaft.
