GOLF CLUB INCLUDING DETACHABLE BALL STRIKING l9 FACES OF VARIOUS LOFTS 2 Sheets-Sheet 1 Filed Sept. 10,

INVENTOR ALBERT EW. THOMAS ATTORNEYS June 22, 1965 A. E. w. THOMAS 3,190,651

GOLF CLUB INCLUDING DETACHABLE BALL STRIKING FACES OF VARIOUS LOFTS Filed Sept. 10, 1962 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 I'IIII'IIIIII'IIIIIIIIIF INVENTOR. ALBERT E.W. THOMAS BY I ATTORNEYS United States Patent 3,190,651 GOLF CLUB INCLUDING DETACHAELE BALI, STRIKING FAQES 0F VARIUUS LOFTS Albert E. W. Thomas, 146 Waldorf Drive, Dayton, Uhio Filed Sept. 10, 1962, Ser. No. 222,476 9 Claims. Cl. 27379) This invention relates to a golf club arrangement and more particularly to a club arrangement which is readily adaptable to perform the functions heretofore possible only with a group of clubs, and with each club being adapted for separate and distinct usage.

One of the major difficulties encountered by a participant engaging in the game of golf was the necessity of employing numerous separate clubs, each so constructed as to perform a relatively narrow range of operation. The shortcomings have been that such a set of clubs were expensive to purchase, cumbersome to carry around the golf course and difiicult to use with proficiency.

Attempts have been made in the past to utilize a single club having an adjustable head which could be swiveled into various angular positions. Such a device has proven unsatisfactory for the reason that the swivel head has a tendency to become loosened during usage with resultant loss of accuracy in the angular setting of the club face. Also, such a device was lacking in means or provision for selectively lengthening or shortening the club shaft relative to the selected angle of the club face. Furthermore, such a device was lacking in means for varying the club weight and was confined to a single constant weight.

With the foregoing in mind, it is an object of this invention to provide a single golf club with provisions for selectively changing the angle of the club face to suit various conditions encountered during the progress of the game.

It is another object of this invention to provide means for selectively lengthening and shortening of the club shaft when the user so desires.

In addition, it is a further object of this invention to provide a single golf club which can be quickly, selectively, and accurately adapted so as to provide a single instrument which can fulfill most all of the myriad situations encountered in the game of golf.

A still further object is to provide a single golf club with variable shaft length, head angle, and head Weight.

Other objects and advantages will become more apparent upon reference to the following specification, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which:

FIGURE 1 is a perspective view of the entire golf club;

FIGURE 2 is a transverse sectional view of the club head along the line 2-2 of FIGURE 1;

FIGURE 3 is a longitudinal sectional View along the line 33 of FIGURE 1;

FIGURE 4 is an elevational view showing the club head with several of the segmental plates removed;

FIGURE 5 is an enlarged fragmentary view showing a modification of dovetail means for securing several of the component parts;

FIGURE 6 is an exploded perspective view of the club head; and

FIGURE 7 is a longitudinal sectional view of the club shaft along the line 77 of FIGURE 1.

Referring to FIGURE 1, the golf club is comprised of a head 10, a shaft 12 integral with the head, and a handle portion 14 formed as part of the shaft at the end thereof opposite head 10.

FIGURE 2 represents the club head being comprised of a fixed portion It), in combination with several separate wedge shaped plates 16-28. Each plate is removable and comprises a segment of the total club head. The angle of incidence of each plate may be varied so as to provide an effective series of club faces each having a pitch corresponding to that of a standard golf club.

The several plates are held in a predetermined and fixed position during operation by fastener means 30. The fastener means 3% is comprised of a tubular nut 31 having a knurled finger portion and bolt 33, said bolt having at its anterior end a single bar-like key 32 pivotally affixed to the bolt at 34,. FIGURE 2 shows the key 32 flush mounted into a horizontal recess 36 in the face of plate 23.

Each of the several plates 16-28 is provided with a similar recess. Each of the several plates 16-28 is also provided with a vertical slot 38 large enough to permit the key 32 to pass through it when rotated vertically.

The fixed portion of the club head 10 is provided on it back forwardly facing wall with upper and lower lateral locating grooves 4-0 and 42. Correspondingly the posterior of the plate 16 is provided with locating ribs 44 and ie receivable in the grooves to locate the plate on the head.

Each plate preferably has grooves extending laterally across the face thereof (FIG. 6) and each plate also has ribs on the back to engage the grooves in the plate on which it rests. The forwardmost plate 28 may of course be free of the lateral grooves in the outer face thereof.

In FIGURE 3, the fixed portion of the head 19 is shown to have vertical locating grooves 42% on the forwardly extending side wall thereof provided so as to receive a locating rib 5% for each of the several plate 16-28. These vertical grooves are also seen in FIGURE 4 at 48 and are positioned so as to aid in the locating and fixing of the several plates 16-28 in their respective angular positions. A modification of these vertical locating grooves is shown in FIGURE 5 as being comprised of hardened inserts 54 which are mortised in dovetail fashion to receive a dovetail tenon 56.

The several plates are shown in FIGURES 2 and 3 to be relieved at 58 and elsewhere when possible so as to reduce the over-all weight of these complementary sections. By means of this relief, the various plates are thus provided with locating surfaces shown at as, 62, and 64 which prevents the accumulation of dirt or other foreign matter from interfering with the accuracy and stability of the setting of the several plates in complementary position. The relieving of the plates also permits control of the Weight of the club head for each combination of plates.

Thus described, it is seen that the several plates 16 through 23 are held in rigid complementary position by the fastener means 31 and are precluded from vertical movement by the lateral locating grooves 46 and 42 in head Ill and corresponding ribs 44 and 46 in plate 16 while being further located by the vertical locating grooves 48 in the head and the corresponding ribs 50 in the plates.

In FIGURE 7, the club shaft is shown at 12 having a conical and tapped recess at 64 to receive the threaded portion 66 of the handle segment 68. Similarly, the handle segment 6% has a conical recess 79 to receive a corresponding extension '72 of the next handle segment 74, which is also threaded at 76 so as to be held by the tapped portion 73 of the handle segment 68. Similarly, a shorter handle segment 80 is provided with a conical extension 32 for receiving within the conical recess of handle segment 74, handle segment 81') being held in threaded engagement with handle segment 74 at 84. An end cap 86 is adapted for covering the exposed end of any one of the handle segments.

The pivotal connection of the bar-like key member 32 to the end of the bolt 33 is provided so that the key memher will adapt itself in angularity to the angle of the face of the particular segment which it engages. In FIGURE 2, for example, the segment is substantially in a vertical plane whereas in FIGURE 4 it will be seen to be inclined to conform to the angularity of the face of segment 16 which it engages.

It will be understood that this invention is susceptible to modification in order to adapt it to different usages and conditions; and, accordingly, it is desired to comprehend such modifications within this invention as may fall within the scope of the appended claims.
