HOLDER FOR GOLF BALLS OR THE LIKE Filed March 26, 1927 Burfw Z3. M01155 Patented Oct. 14, 1930 PATENT OFFICE BURTON B. MORSS, OF DECORAH, IOWA HOLDER FOR GOLF BALLS OR THE LIKE Application filed March 26, 1927. Serial No. 178,657.

My invention relates to holders for golf balls, or the like and has among its other objects the production of devices of the kind described which are convenient, compact, v durable and satisfactory for use wherever found applicable.

A particular object of the invention is to provide a holder for golf balls, or the like, in which holder, golf balls may be quickly inserted and from which holder the golf balls may be quickly withdrawn.

Another particular object of the invention is to provide an improved golf ball holder which maybe secured to a golf bag and is adapted to hold a quantity of balls which may be quickly removed therefrom.

Many other objects and advantages of the construction herein shown and described will be obvious to those skilled in the art from the disclosure herein given.

To this end my invention consists in the novel construction, arrangement and combination of parts herein shown and described, and more particularly pointed out in the claims.

In the drawings, wherein like reference characters indicate like or corresponding parts:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a golf bag to which a holder embodying the invention is secured; I 1 Fig. 2 is an enlarged section taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a section taken on line 3-3 of Fig. 2;

Fig. 4 is a top plan view holder embodying another form of the invention; and

Fig. 5 is a fragmentary section taken on line 55 of Fig. 4.

Referring for the present to Figs. 1 to 3, inclusive, the reference character 10 designates generally a golf bag of the type generally employed to hold a quantity of golf clubs, the bag being preferably provided with a strap 11 whereby it maybe hung from the Secured to the outer shoulder of the user. side of the bag 10 is a golf ball holder 13 which embodies the inventionand is prefer-- vc250 ably substantially cylindrical in form. The

of a golf ball holder 13 preferably comprises spaced annular members 15 and 16 whichare preferably formed from some substantially flexible and elastic material such as rubber, or the like. The annular members 15 and 16 may be of any suitable form but preferably comprise annular body portions 17 provided with inwardly extending annular flanges 18 which form apertures 20 through which the golf balls may be inserted in or withdrawn from the holder 13. Preferably formed integral with each body portion 17 is a substanatially cylindrical annular flange 22 which is secured, by stitches or other suitable means, to one end of a tube 2%, the tube 24 being preferably formed from some flexible material such as leather, canvas, rubber, or the like. As shown, the flanges 22 are preferably tapered so that they will not interfere with the withdrawal of golf balls from the improved holder.

The means whereby the holder 13 is secured to the bag 10 preferably comprises tongues or straps 25 formed integral with the body portions 17 of the annular members 15 and 16, the tongues or straps 25 being secured by rivets 27, or the equivalent, to the wall of the bag.

' It readily understood that a plurality of golf balls may beinserted in the holder 13 through either end thereof as the flanges 18 are relatively flexible and resilient and are adapted to yield in the manner indicated in dotted lines in F 3. Of course, the flanges 18 are formed so that they will retain the balls within the holder'13 under normal condi.. s so that balls will not accidently drop 'tijiererrom. However, the balls may be ejected one a time by partially collapsing the tube 2 L to force the bails out of either end of the holder, in which event. the flange 18 through which the balls pass will flex or bend outwardly. The manner in which the tube 24: may be partially collapsed to eject one of the balls is illustrated by dotted lines in F ig. 3.

Referring now to i and 5, wherein l have shown a golf ball holder 30 embodying another form of the invention, the reference character 31 designates a flexible tube which resembles the aforementionedflexibletube 24 and is preferably formed of leather, canvas, rubber, or the like. As both ends of the golf ball holder are substantially identical in some instances, I may prefer to use leatheror other flexible material which is not particularly elastic. The disc 32 is preferably pro videdwith a relatively large central aperture 33 through which a golf into the tube 31', each disc 2 bein secured inany suitable manner to the tube 31. Thus, in the present instance, each disc 32 is stitched as indicated at 34 to one of a plurality of outwardly projecting annular flanges 35 preferably formed integral with the tube 31. Annular members 37 are preferably secured by the stitches 3 1 to each disc 32 and the associated flange 35 of the tube 31.

I The means for securing the holder 30 to av golfbag, or the like, preferably comprises a leather strap 40, or the equivalent, which is ball may be forced 3 threaded-through aligned apertures formed in the annular members 37, the disc32-and the flanges 35. The strap 10 ispreferably also threaded through apertures 12 formed in the cylindrical wall of the tube 31 so that the greater portion ofthe strap is disposed within the tube 31. The ends of the strap are preferably provided with apertures 43 so that they may be riveted to the golf bag.

Obviously, the improved golf ball holder shown in Figs. 4: and 5 is used in substantially the same manner as the golf ball holder 13. Thus, the discs 02 function substantially in the same manner as the aforementioned flanges 18 and yield to permit the insertion of accidental loss of said objects from said tubular members, and annular flanges formed integral with said ring-shaped members, said tubularmember being secured tosaid annular flanges. p

2. A device of the kind described compris ing aflexible tubular memberadapted to hold objects, and a ring of flexible material secured to each'ei'id of said tubular member forpreventing accidentalloss of said objects therefrom,rsaid rings being normally smaller in inner diameter than said objects and adapted to permit the passage of said objects therethrough, v I 7 In testimony whereof, I have hereunto signed my name.

BURTON B. Moiiss.

golf balls into the tube 31 but prevent accidental loss thereof from the holder. In some embodiments of the invention, 1

may prefer to make the holder of substantially one-piece construction.

Thus, the tube 24 shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3 could be formed substantially integral with the annular mem bers 15 and 16 which are provioed with tongues or straps 25 whereby the holder issecured to the bag 10.

Having thus described my invention, it is obvious that various immaterial modifications may be made in the same without deaartin from the s irit of m invention" hence I do not wish to be understood as limiting myself to the exact form, construction,"

arrangement and combination of parts herein shown and described, or uses mentioned.

What I claim as new Letters Patent is: s

1. A device of the kind described comprising a flexible tubular member adapted tohold a plurality of objects, ring-shaped members formed of flexible material disposed at the ends of saidtubular member for preventing and desire to secure by
