Description

    RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • This is a continuation-in-part application of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 10/628,329 filed on Jul. 29, 2003 for a Golf Divot Tool Bearing a Magnetic Ball Marker.
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • This invention relates to a multi-functional device for use in the game of golf. In particular, this invention relates to a golf divot repair tool that also holds a marker used in marking the position of golf balls on the golf course.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • When a golfer heads for the golf course, the golfer needs several items. First, the golfer needs a golf divot repair tool to repair the sod when it is disturbed during play. Divot repair tools are provided with pointed ends to stick down into the sod in order to lift the sod.
  • Second, a golfer needs a ball marker, and an accompanying holder, during the play of golf. Conventional marker holders can removably receive a ball marker, which is most often magnetically attached to a depression in the holder.
  • In the prior art, magnetic marker holders provide a depression to removably receive a ball marker. The marker is held in place by a magnet located at a first end of the depression. The magnet would correspond to a first end of the marker. To remove the marker, a second end of the marker is depressed, which rocks the marker off the magnet, and detaches the marker from the holder.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 5,295,683 issued to Tate on Mar. 22, 2004 and entitled Golf Divot Tool with Ball Marker discloses a divot tool with a ball marker which comprises an annular disk of magnetic material with a post projecting therefrom. The post extends through an opening in the magnetic material so that when the ball marker is to be ejected from the seat, the post is pressed to push the shield out of the recessed ball marker seat in the body.
  • Another example of a golf divot tool is shown in U.S. Pat. No. 6,033,322 issued on Mar. 7, 2000 to England. This device shows a ball marker for repairing divots which uses a ball marker which comprises an annular disk with a protruding stem which is retained within a slot. Cope discloses in U.S. Pat. No. 6,569,039 which issued on May 27, 2003, a golf ball position marking assembly which also discloses the use of a circular disk with a post extending therefrom as the ball marker.
  • All of these prior art devices show the use of an annular disk with a post or stem protruding therefrom. These prior art devices are based on the theory that the ball market must extend inwardly into the turf to secure it in place to prevent it from being dislodged from the green where it is used. As such, all of the devices use the stem or post to remove the ball marker from the divot tool.
  • Also, by using the stem or post, this prevents advertising material and the like from being displayed on both sides of the ball marker. It also requires the ball marker to be used in only one orientation, that is, with the post or stem extending downwardly into the turf. A third drawback of the prior art devices is that the mechanism does not retain or adequately secure the marker to the holder. It is common in these devices for the marker to unintentionally detach from the holder and become lost.
  • Accordingly, there is a need for a multi-functional golf device that provides a divot repair tool and an improved ball marker and ball marker holder.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • The golf divot repair tool of this invention is shown generally in the figures by the reference numeral 10. The tool 10 includes two arms 16 extending from the main body of the tool 10. The arms 16 are pointed or sharpened at their extremities for ease of insertion into sod of the golf green.
  • As shown in FIG. 1, a first embodiment of the golf divot repair tool 10 includes a depression 12, which is preferably generally circular in shape. Magnetic material is disposed in the depression 12. In the preferred embodiment shown in FIG. 1, the magnetic material is shown as comprising four magnets 20 circumferentially spaced about the depression 12.
  • FIG. 2 shows the corresponding ball marker 14. The ball marker 14 is constructed at least partially of a material attracted by magnetism. The marker 14 complementally fits depression 12, such that the marker 14 is releasably held in the depression 12 by the magnetic material.
  • As shown in FIGS. 1 and 3, an opening 22 is formed through the body of the tool 10, at the depression 12. The opening 22 allows an exposed surface of the marker 14 to be pushed, by a finger for example, such that the ball marker 14 may be moved. When the ball marker 14 is held in the depression 12, it may be moved or pushed away from the magnetic material a sufficient distance to release the ball marker 14 from the depression 14. This allows easy removal of the marker 14 from the tool for use in the play of golf. After use, the marker 14 may be placed at the depression 12 to be held in place by the magnetic material once again.
  • The opening is preferably circular, and may have a diameter in the range of from 5 to 40 mm.
  • It will be readily understood by one skilled in the art that the number of magnets 20 disposed about the depression 12 is not essential, as one or more magnets 20 may be provided to hold the marker 14 on more than one end. FIG. 4 illustrates another embodiment of the invention, wherein the magnetic material comprises one magnet 24 of annular shape, centered about the depression 12.
  • In yet another embodiment, as shown in FIG. 5, a movable member 30 may be disposed in the opening 22. When the movable member is moved or pushed while the ball marker 14 is held in the depression 12, the member moves the ball marker 14 away from the magnetic material a sufficient distance to release the ball marker 14 from the depression 12.
  • Accordingly, it can be seen that an improved divot repair tool 10 is provided, which includes an improved means of holding a ball marker 14 with easy removal of the ball marker 14.
  • Another embodiment is shown in FIGS. 6 a to FIG. 6 c. In this embodiment, the upper body 52 of the tool 10 comprises a pair of inwardly curved flanges 54, 54, a spring 56 nested between said arms (see FIG. 6 b) and a ball marker 14. To remove the ball marker 14, it is raised upwardly expanding the spring 56 outwardly which allows the ball market 14 to be removed through the space 58 between the flanges 54.
  • In the embodiment shown in FIG. 7 a and 7 b, the arms 16 (with reference to FIG. 1) have been replaced by hook 60 and as shown in FIG. 7 b, the upper rear 62 of the body has a small aperture 64 therethrough through which is inserted hook 66 which is attached to a belt link 68.
  • FIGS. 8 a, 8 b and 8 c illustrate a further embodiment wherein the body includes a hook portion 72 which can be used to attach the tool to a belt (not shown).
  • FIG. 9 represents a further embodiment of the present invention. In FIG. 9 a, the ball marker 14 is inserted through slot 70. In this embodiment, inwardly curved flanges 54, 54 terminate at a distance disposed from each other thereby creating space 58 between the flanges 54. The body is continuous at the rear portion thereof forming rear part 70. In this embodiment, ball marker 14 is inserted through space 58 between flanges 54 as shown in FIG. 9 b. Ball marker 14 is held in the depression 12 by magnetic 24 of annular shape centred about the depression 12.
  • A further embodiment is illustrated in FIGS. 10 a, 10 b and 10 c wherein the ball marker 14 is inserted through space 58 between the flanges 54. In this embodiment, spring 56 nests between the arms as illustrated in FIGS. 6 a to 6 c.
  • It will be understood that, although various features of the invention have been described with respect to one or another of the embodiments of the invention, the various features and embodiments of the invention may be combined or used in conjunction with other features and embodiments of the invention as described and illustrated herein.
  • As can be seen from the embodiments of the present invention, the ball marker 14 carries advertising or other indicia on both sides of it thus providing a distinct advantage over the prior art devices. Since the ball mark may be placed in either direction in the depression, advertising on both sides can be easily seen by the user.
