ATTORNEY \lrll Patented Dec. 29, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE GOLF :BAG

omi- P. Haserodt, Elyria, Ohio Application August 19, 1935, SerialNo. 36,793 6 Claims. (Cl. -15) This invention relates to improvements in golf bags and more particularly to a protective means for the heads of the wood clubs and has for one of its objects to provide a bag which is simple in construction, efiicient in its purpose and inexpensive to manufacture.

The heads of wood clubs particularly have been subject to injury heretofore by reason of the continuous bumping of the heads of the clubs both during play and when the bag of clubs is in transit. Furthermore, weather conditions ma,- terially affect the heads of wood clubs, causing them to warp and the wrappings to become loosened, thus shortening the life of a wood club. A number of schemes have been heretofore proposed, the most common of which has been to provide individual sacks or covers made of various kinds of material which fit over and enclose the head of a wood club. These covers have been provided with so-called zippers or other means by which the cover is maintained on the club head. Such an arrangement, however, is very unsatisfactory as it requires individual covers, each removable separately when it is desired to use that particular club and being free or unattached is frequently lost. Furthermore, the caddies, when they remove one of the covers, very seldom replace it upon the club after its use, and either put it in the bag or their pocket, thus defeating the purpose for which the cover was intended.

It is therefore a further object of the present.

invention to provide a cover for the heads of wood clubs which is preferably a part of the bag and arranged in such a manner as to provide individual pockets to receive and enclose the heads of the wooden clubs.

A still further object of the invention is to 'provide a cover for the heads of the wood clubs which may be made as a part of the golf bag proper without requiring any change in the general construction of the bag or which may be attached subsequent to the manufacture of the bags as may be desired. 7

A further object of the invention is to utilize the hood of the golf bag as a part of the cover for the heads of the wood clubs without in any manner interfering with the purpose for which the hood is intended.

With the objects above indicated and other objects hereinafter explained in view, the invention consists in the construction and combination of elements hereinafter described and claimed,

Referring to the drawings, 7

bodying the present invention;

Figure 2 is a fragmentary front elevational view of the bag shown in Figure 1;

Figure 3 is a fragmentary side elevational view 5 of the bag showing one of the hood sections with the cover embodying the present invention attached thereto, the hood being shown in closed position by dot and dash lines;

Figure 4 is a front elevational view of that 10 shown in Figure 3 with a portion of the bag in section;

Figure 5 is a transverse sectional view taken on line 55 in Figure 4 and on an enlarged scale showing one of the pockets with the head of a 15 club enclosed therein. 7

In the drawings, I have illustrated a golf bag of well-known construction which comprises a bag proper In of tubular shape closed at its bottom' and open at its upper end so as to receive the shaft portions of both the wood and iron clubs. The bag in this instance is made of flexoperating half sections l4 and I5 which have their lower edges stitched or otherwise secured 35 around the inner periphery of the open end and their free ends adapted for insertion within the bag proper out of the way when the'bag is being used in play or in extended position above the bag proper so as to enclose the heads of the wood 4 and iron clubs against loss or injury. A suit' able closure means is provided for securing the half sections l4 and I5 in cooperating engagement and in the present instance a slide fastener 16 0f the well-known zipper type is used for 45 this purpose and attached in the usual manner. The features and construction of the bag so far described are embodied in practically all types of golf bags as manufactured and sold at the present time and, form no part of the present in- 50 vention except as the latter may be in combination therewith as hereinafter explained.

In Figures 4 and 5, a more detailed illustration of the invention is shown wherein a flexible sheet I l'l of leather or other suitablem'aterial, prefer- 55 proper on opposite 2 ably of the same material as the bag proper, and cut to the desired shape, has its annular edge portion secured to the annular edge portion of the hood section l5 as by stitching IS, the lower edge I 9, however, being free or unstitched. The sheet I! and hood sections l5 are further secured together at spaced intervals longitudinally thereof as by stitching 20 so as to provide individual spaced pockets 2|, 22, and 23 of suflicient size and shape to receive the heads of the wood clubs 24, 25, and 26, respectively, as shown. While three of such pockets are herein illustrated, it

should be understood that any number may. be employed, depending upon the players desires,

The shafts of the clubs extend downwardly through a portion of the pocket and into the bag in the usual manner. V l

The sheet I! at its upper portion is provided with a plurality of openings 21, one communicat-.

ing with each of the pockets 22, 23, and 24 and through which the wood clubs may be removed or inserted. Slide fasteners 28 are stitched or otherwise secured to' theadjacent portions of the openings and are operated to either open or'close the openings as desired. These fasteners may have tabs 29 of different colored material to indicate which of the wood clubs is in the respective pockets.

When the golf bag is in use, the hood portion l5 assumes the position shown in Figures 3 and 4 of the drawings. If a certain wood club is desired for play, the proper fastener is moved to the position shown at the left hand side of Figure 4. This provides an'opening through which i the club may be removed and after use it may be replaced through the same opening and the fastener again closed.

The pockets being made a part of the bag prevents their loss and the player can see that the fasteners are closed. As there are individual pockets for each wood club there is no possibility of damage to the clubs due to the usual banging of the clubs when they are otherwise exposed or removed.

When it is desired to transport the bag from one place to another or to prevent theft or loss of the clubs the fastener I6 is moved around the hood sections l4 and I5 so as to connect the same, thereby entirely enclosing both the wood and iron clubs, the hood assuming substantially the position shown in dot and dash lines in Figure 3.

While I have described the preferred embodiment of the invention, it is to be understood that I am not to be limited thereto inasmuch as changes and modifications may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention as defined in the appended claims.
