GEORGE GREIG- WEBSTER AND WILLAM S. WEBSTER, OF LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA.

GOLF-CLUB CONSTRUCTN.

Application led April 30, 1928.

This invention relates to improvements in golf clubs.

The general object of this invention is` to provide a golf club wherein the center of balance is correctly located.

A further object of the invention is to provide a golf club with a novel insert which is of a different density from that of the golf club.

A still further object of the 'invention is to provide a novel form of metal insert which is adapted to be moulded in a metal golf club.

Other objects and advantages of this invention will be apparent from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein:

Fig. 1 is a top plan view of a metal golf club head embodying the features of our invention.

Fig. 2 is a front face view of the golf club head shown in Fig. 1.

Fig. 8 is a section taken on line 3 8 of Fig. 2, and

Fig. et is a perspective view of our improved metal insert. n

Referring to the drawings by reference characters we have indicated a golf club head embodying the features of our invention generally at 10. The golf club shown is a put ter but it will be understood that our invention may be embodied in various other golf club heads with equal success.

The golf club head 10 as shown is prefer* ably made of aluminum and includes a body portion 12 having a striking face 14 and a shank 15 in which a shaft 1G is adapted to be positioned.

A metal insert indicated generally at 18 is provided in the body portion 12 at approximately the center of balance of the club head. This insert 18 is preferably made of brass or other metal or alloy which is heavier than aluminum and includes a face 19 which is adapted to be positioned `fiush with the club face 14, a top portion 2O which is shaped to conform to the shape of the top of the club head, a rear portion 21 which is adapted to be positioned flush with the rear portion of the club head and a bottom portion 22 which is adapted to be spaced from the bottom of the club head as clearly shown in Fig. 3.

serial' No. 273,782.

Extending rearwardly from the front face 19 and between the upper and bottom portions a tongue 24: is provided. The upper and lower faces of this tongue taper rearwardly towards the center of the rearward portion 21 and the meeting edge of the two faces is spaced from the rear portion 21 as clearly shown inFigs. 8 and 4c.

llhen making golf club head embodying the features of our invention the insert 18 is placed in a club head mould and then the inolten metal of which the club head is formed is poured into the mold. The molten met-al fiows below the insert 18 and into the space between the upper and lower portions 2O and 22 and around the tongue 2li, thus when the club head is removed from the mould the insert 18 is lirmly embedded in the club head as clearly shown in Fig. 8.

The sides 25 of the front face converge upwardly being farther apart at the bottom of the club. This lowers the center of gravity of the club which is of great advantage.

lith my invention the club head is properly weighted and the center of balance is brought up close to the striking face. As a result a better control of the club is secured and thus more accurate putting is secured.

From the foregoing description it will be apparent that I have provided a novel form of golf club head which is simple in construction, highly efficient in use and which can be economically manufactured.

Having thus described our invention, we claim:

A golf club head comprising a metal body portion including a front face and a shank, an insert in said body portion, said insert being made of a heavier metal than said club head body portion and said insert being positioned at approximately the center of weight of said club head, said insert comprising a front portion, an upper portion, a bottom portion and a rear portion, a tongue on said front portion, said tongue extending rearwardly and including upper and lower faces converging towards the center of said rear portion, the meeting edge of said upper and lower faces of said tongue being spaced from said rear portion, the outer face of said front portion being positioned flush with said front face of said club head body portion and said insert upper portion being positioned flush with the upper surface of said club head, said insert rear pon tion being positioned flush With the rear por- 5 tion of said club head and said insert bottoni portion being spaced from the bottom face of said club head, the metal forming said club head body portion occupying` the space in said insert between said insert upper portion and bottom portion and surrounding said tongue. 10 In'testiinony whereof, We hereunto affix our signatures.
