GOLF GLOVE Nov. 4, 1958 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Filed Sept. 9, 1955 /27 Ven for 5. 0J, U1 0J. GMW m@ l w A W United States Patent GOLF GLOVE William Ogg, Albany, N. Y.

Application September 9, 1955, Serial No. 533,445

4 Claims. (Cl. 2-161) My invention relates to gloves and particularly to gloves which are specially designed to be worn by golf players to provide an improved grip on a club.

Gloves of the present type worn by golfers do not prevent the loosening of the grip on a club of the uppermost hand, especially at the top of the back swing.

The principal object of my invention, therefore, is to design a glove Which will provide the wearer with a better grip on a golf club, particularly for the second, third and fourth lingers of the uppermost hand grasping the club. Another object is to provide Such a glove which will not interfere with the usual interlocking of the forelinger of the hand wearing the glove with the index and second linger of the other hand when the club handle is gripped.

I accomplish these objects by the means described below and illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which- Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a pair of hands, one of which is wearing one of my gloves, and which are shown gripping the handle of a golf club;

Fig. 2 is a palm view of one of my gloves provided with a padding on the inside thereof and showing a hand therein;

Fig. 3 is a perspective view showing the back of the glove shown in Fig. 2;

Fig. 4 is a plan view of the preferred form of padding when used with my glove;

Fig. 5 is a section of Fig. 4 in the plane 5-5 drawn to an enlarged scale and indicating that the preferred padding is formed of sponge rubber having perforations therein;

Fig. 6 is a palm view of a modification of my glove with portions broken away and showing a hand therein; and

Fig. 7 is a section of a padding, such as shown in plan in Fig. 4, but which tapers in thickness from the outer side of the palm to very thin at the opposite edge.

Referring first to Figs. l-S of the drawings, my glove comprises the usual leather covering 1 which, as here illustrated, has the linger stalls cut olf in Zones, such as shown at 2, 3, 4 and 5, between the first and second joints of the fingers covered thereby. The glove is open at the back 6; has an opening 7 for the passage of the thumb, but no covering therefor; and is provided with a strap 8 and snap fastener parts 9 and 10 designed to secure the strap around the wrist of the wearer, as shown in Figs. l and 2.

In order to restrict independent movement of the second, third and fourth lingers, the leather stalls or coverings for the second and fourth ngers are stitched ice to thestall for the -third linger, -as shownat 11 and' 12. The covering 15 for the forelinger, however, provides free movement of this linger.

Within the glove on the palm side thereof and substantially covering the palm portion of the hand wearing the glove, is a padding 13 which is stitched to the palm portion of the leather covering, as shown at 14. The padding 13 extends into the three stalls of the glove, which-are stitched together and is stitched thereto, as best shown in Fig. 2. As illustrated, the padding is formed of sponge rubber, which is preferred, but any material which will provide a cushion effect may be used.

Referring now to Fig. 6, I have here shown a glove which is similar to that shown in Figs. 3 and 4 insofar as the padding 13 is concerned, but in which the stalls or linger coverings completely enclose the fingers instead of being cut olf in a zone between the first and second joints thereof, and in which the glove is provided with a thumb covering 16 and an elastic in the wrist portion to secure it about the wrist, as shown at 17. Here the stalls for the second and fourth linger are stitched to the stall for the third finger, as shown at 18 and 19, but the stall or covering for the iirst, or index, finger allows free movements thereof. If desired, the thumb portion of the glove and the stall or covering for the fore-finger may be perforated, as shown at 20.

In Fig. 7 I have shown a preferred cross section of the padding which is thickest at the outer side of the hand and tapers to practically nothing at the opposite edge.

The fact that my glove restricts the independent movements of the second, third, and fourth lingers is very important, and this feature alone, without any padding, provides a surer grip on a club than gloves of the present type.

While I have illustrated and described my glove as having the padding on the inner side thereof it may be applied to the outside if desired.

What I claim is:

l. A golfers glove having a covering for the palm of the hand and a separate stall for each of the lingers of the hand extending at least from the bases of said lingers to zones between first and second joints thereof; the stalls for the second and fourth lingers being secured to the sides of the stall for the third finger from the bases thereof substantially throughout to prevent independent movements of said second, third and fourth lingers; and the stall for the forelinger providing free movement of said forelinger when in said stall, whereby it may be interlocked with the forefinger and second linger of the other hand when a golf club handle is gripped by a wearer of said glove.

2. The structure set forth in claim 1 in which said glove is provided with a padding extending throughout a substantial portion thereof forming the coverings for the palm of the hand and the palm sides of the stalls for the second, third and fourth fingers; and means securing said padding to the inner side of said glove.

3. A golfers glove having a covering for the palm of the hand and a separate stall for each of the fingers of the hand completely covering said lingers; the stalls for the second and fourth lingers being secured to the sides of the stall for the third finger substantially throughout to prevent independent movements of said second,

third and fourth tingers;and the stall for the forenger References Cited in the le of this patent providing free movement of said forenger when in said stall, whereby it may be interlocked with the forenger UNITED STATES PATENTS and second linger of the other hand when a golf club 632,547 Barth Slept. 5, 1899 handle is gripped by a wearer of said glove. 5 1,045,231 Whitley Nov. 26, 1912 4. The structure set forth in claim 3 in which said 2,465,136 Troccoli Mar. 22, 1949 glove is provided with a padding extending throughout 2,694,029 Skinner Nov. 9, 1954 a' substantial portion thereof forming the coverings for 2,735,108 Cremer Feb. 21, 1956 the palm of the hand and the palm sides of the stalls for the second, third and fourth fingers; and means se- 10 FOREIGN PATENTS Y curing said padding to the inner side of said glove. 1721239 Great Britain DCC- 8, 1921
