GOLF BALL HOLDER Filed April 20, 1940 Patented Oct. 29, 1940 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 3 Claims.

This invention relates to golf ball holdersof the type described in my Patent No. 2,159,122, granted May 23, 1939. A holder of this type includes a hanger suspended vertically from a suitable support and having at the lower end a saddle for holding a golf ball or the like in position for driving just above the ground level. I have found that when used on windy days the hanger suspending the golf ball tends to swing in the wind, resulting in undesirable movement of the ball.

An object of this invention is to provide an improved hange'r for golf ball holders of the 'type set forth, constructed and arranged to resist swinging movement so as to maintain the suspended ball stationary in driving position.

These and other objects are accomplished by the invention hereinafter described, one embodiment of which is illustrated in the accompany- 20 ing drawing in which,

Fig. 1 is a view in elevation, partly in section of a golf ball holder provided with a hanger and ball saddle constructed in accordance with one embodiment of this invention.

25 Fig. 2 is a perspective View, partially broken away, of the hanger and saddle shown in Fig. -1, and

Fig. 3 is an elevation of a detail.

The illustrated embodiment of the invention 30 is shown in connection with a holder comprising a standard 5 for supporting a vertically adjustable horizontal arm 6 having an upright section 1 adapted to be secured at the desired level in the standard 5 by a suitable holding means such 35 as the set screw 8. The arm 5 has a slotted end 9 for receiving and holding a hanger ill of paper or some similar material which is easily torn. The hanger is suspended from the slotted end of the arm 6 by a head ll forming shoulders l2 for suspending the hanger in position.

The lower end of the hanger is formed so as to provide a ball saddle I3, in the present case by extending the material of the hanger diametrically around the ball l4. Obviously, the

45 saddle can be formed in any desired manner.

As pointed out in my said patent, the structure so far described is adapted to hold a golf ball, for example, in correct driving position. In order to prevent any swinging movement of the hanger,

50 I provide a flexible, resilient ground-engaging means at the bottom of the ball saddle for yield-, ingly engaging the ground so as to restrict any tendency of the hanger to swing. As illustrated, this comprises ground-engaging means formed 55 by the body member l having flexible strands or prongs l6 extending through a slot ll formed in As illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2, the prongs I6 10 engage the ground. beneath the saddle. They preferably extend outwardly in a multiplicity of directions and thus resist and restrict any swinging movement of the hanger when it is in driving position.

The operation of the device is similar to that described in my aforesaid patent. The impact of driving expels the ball from the saddle which offers substantially no resistance to the driving operation. The hanger is forced against the edge of the slotted end 9 and torn off and thus removed therefrom after which a fresh hanger and ball can be located in position.

Obviously the invention can be variously modified and adapted within the scope of the appended claims.

I claim:

1. A golf ball holder comprising a hanger, means at one end thereof for suspending said hanger vertically, means on the other end of said hanger for holding a golf ball in position for driving when said hanger is suspended vertically, and ground-engaging means secured to the lower end of said hanger to engage the ground and restrict movement of said hanger when in driving position.

2. A golf ball holder comprising a hanger, means at one end thereof for suspending said hanger vertically, means on the other end of said hanger for holding a golf ball in position for driving when said hanger is suspended vertically, and flexible ground-engaging means secured to the lower end of said hanger to engage the ground and restrictmovement of said hanger when in driving position.

3. A golf ball holder comprising a hanger, means at one end thereof for suspending said hanger vertically, a ball saddle on the other end of said hanger for holding a golf ball in driving position when said hanger is suspended vertically,

and ground-engaging means comprising a plurality of flexible prongs extending through the bottom of said hanger to engage the ground and restrict movement of said hanger when in driving position.

JOHN ARMSTRONG.
