Description

I vzasszt l .7,... VARI-POSITION GOLF CLUB John W. Hill, Cromwell, Minn Application September 16, 1943, Serial No. 502,673
5 Claims.
This invention relates to a golf club.
It is particularly aimed to provide a construction wherein a surface or angle of a loft may be varied as desired to the end that the club will be adjustable to form a substitute for and pery form the function of a plurality of d iierent clubs.
It is also aimed to provide a set of golf clubs wherein two of them will function for all the clubs now used for clubs numbers l to 10, and one of which may also be used as a putter.
The more specific -objects and advantages will Y become apparent from a consideration ofthe description following taken in connection with the accompanyingrdrawing illustrating an operative embodiment.
In said drawing:
Figure 1 is a view of the wooden golf club looking toward the loft surface thereof, the same having the staff broken away; g
Figure 2 is a plan view of the parts of Fig- Figure 3 is a longitudinal sectional view taken on the line 3--3 of Figure 2;
Figurefi is a transverse sectional view taken on the une 4 4 of Figure 2;
Y used in the form of Figure 6.
Referring specifically to the 'drawing wherein like reference characters designate like or similar parts, and rst tothe form of Figures 1 to 5, a golf club I is shown, having a suitable staff II equipped with a head I2 preferably of wood. This club has a loft or face I3 of suitable angle and extending inwardly laterally therefrom is arecess I4 which is occupied by a plurality of relatively movable, removable wooden layers or laminations I5, whose exposed edges are preferably rounded as at I6.
Plates I1 and I8, preferably of brass, and of ,proper curvature, are countersunk into the lower and upper surfaces of the head I2 as at I9 and 20. Integral with the plate I1 is a bolt 2| which rises through openings 22 and 23 in thehead I2 and an opening 24 in the plate I8. The bolt 22 also passes through openings 25 in the laminations I5, the latter affording clearance around the bolt and increasing its diameter in an upward direction as best shown in Figure 4. The laminations I5 are clamped in place with their faces I6 at the desired angle or position by means of al wing nut 26 screw-threaded at 21 on the bolt 2l.
A pair of levers formed of rods 28 are pivoted at 29 to the plate I1 and extend upwardly through openings 30 in the laminations I5 and then through transversely elongated slots 3l and 32 provided in the head I2 and plate I8, and with the nut 26 loose, the levers 28 which extend slightly above the plate I8, may be manipulated by the fingers to swing them laterally in order to dispose the edges I6 at any desired angle according to the angle of loft desired, the different angles or positions being suggested in Figure 5 by way of example. Such adjustment is permitted by clearance afforded by the slots 25. After the adjustment is effected, the nut 26 is tightened to clamp the laminations tightly to the edge. The adjustability enables change of the club for a One, Two or Three club.
IAS a companion with the wooden club described, I use a metallic club or iron having a metallic head 33 in connection with which a staff 34 is provided having an opening at 35, pivoted on a pin 3B projecting from one end of the head 33. The stall? 34 also has a plate 31 provided with an arcuate slot 38 through which a stud 39 on one end ofthe head 33 projects and which is engaged by a nut 40 that clamps the staff at various adjustments to the head 33. This club of- Figures 6 to '7, can be used for clubs One to Ten and can also b'e used as a putter.
Various changes may be resorted to provided they fall within the spirit. and scope of the invention.
I claim as my invention:
1. A club of the class described having a head, laminations in the head providing an angular loft surface,`and means operable to move said laminations relatively to each other and to the head to vary the angle of said surface.
2. A club of the class described having a head, laminations in the head providing an angular loft surface, and means operable to move said laminations relatively to each other and to the head to vary the angle of said surface comprising a lever, openings in the laminations through which the lever passes, and clamping means on the head Y engageable with the laminations.
3. A club of the class described having a head, laminations in the head providing an angular loft surface, `and means operable tio move said laminations relatively to each other and to the head to vary the rangle of said surface comprising a lever, openings in the laminations through which the lever passes, and clamping means Von the head engageable withV the laminations, said laminations having clearance openings through which the clamping means passes, and a. plate on the head mounting the lever and clamping means.
4. A club of the class described having a head, laminations in the head providing an angular loft surface, means operable to move said laminations relatively to each other and to the head to vary the angle of said surface comprising a lever, openings in the laminationsthrough which the lever,
passes, a bolt. said laminations having clearance openings through which the bolt passes, a plate on the head mounting the lever and bolt, said plate being on the bottom of the head, a plate'
