GOLF PUTTER INCLUDI ANGULARLY AND TATABLY RELATIVELY ADJ ABLE HEAD AND Filed May 9, 1965 IIAYIIJZ l A3 in /2 E 2 Flee FIGS FIG? INVENTOR JAMES W. SANTOSUOSSO BY Wmq km ATTORN EYS United States Patent 3,206,206 GOLF PUTTER INCLUDING ANGULARLY AND ROTATABLY RELATIV ELY ADJUSTABLE HEAD AND SHAFT James W. Santosuosso, 54 Stearns St., Malden, Mass. Filed May 9, 1963, Ser. No. 279,128 Claims. ((11. 273-801) The present invention relates generally to golf clubs and more particularly is directed towards a golf putter of a construction permitting the shaft handle to be angularly and rotatably adjusted with respect to the club head.

In golf, putting generally requires a greater concentration and skill than any other portion of the game. For this reason, golfers are quite fussy about selecting a putter which will feel comfortable for particular stance. However, while a golfer may regularly adopt one particular stance in putting, nevertheless there are situations where variations in the stance may be desirable or even necessary. For example, when putting a ball which is on a slight incline, greater accuracy is usually obtained if the base of the club head is fiat against the green. A comfortable stance, therefore, may not be possible if the putter has a head fixed at a given angle to the shaft. As a result the golfer must stroke the ball in a manner which might be somewhat awkward with a probable loss of accuracy. Numerous other occasions also arise in which a normal stance may not be employed because of limitations in the construction of the putter. And from time to time, the golfer may wish purposely to alter his stance in the hope of improving his putting game. However, with the clubs presently available, the golfer is quite limited with respect to changes in stance.

Accordingly, it is an object of the present invention to provide a golf putter of improved construction.

Another object of this invention is to provide a golf putter in which the shaft handle may be angularly and rotatably positioned with respect to the club head.

A further object of this invention is to provide a golf putter having a shaft handle which is adjustably connected to the club head, yet which may be readily changed to one or more selected locked positions without loss of strength or rigidity.

More particularly, this invention features a golf putter comprising a head and shaft handle adjustably connected to one another in a manner permitting the shaft handle to be moved angularly with respect to the length of the head and also to be rotated axially with respect to the club head. The invention also features a novel arrangement which permits quick and easy adjustment of the handle with respect to the head and also provides a sure locking arrangement which prevents the development of looseness amongst parts of the club.

But these and other features of the invention, along with further objects and advantages thereof will become more readily apparent from the following detailed description of a preferred embodiment of the invention, with reference being made to the accompanying drawings in which:

FIGURE 1 is a fragmentary view in front elevation showing a golf putter made according to the invention,

FIGURE 2 is a fragmentary sectional view corresponding to the club shown in FIGURE 1,

FIGURE 3 is a cross-sectional view taken along the line 3-3 of FIGURE 2,

FIGURE 4 is a cross-sectional view taken along the line 44 of FIGURE 2, and,

FIGURES 5, 6 and 7 are elevational views showing the club in three different operating positions.

Referring now to the drawings, the reference character 10 generally indicates a putter comprising a head 12 adjustably mounted to the end of a shaft 14 having the 3,206,206 Patented Sept. 14, 1965 usual covered handle portion 16. As shown the shaft 14 is slightly curved lengthwise in the fashion of modern putters. Typically, the shaft 14 is fabricated from tubular spring steel and the head portion 12 is made of drop forged steel or other heavy material to provide the desired weight and balance for the club.

In the illustrated embodiment, the shaft 14 may be moved into any one of several operating positions with respect to the club head. For example, in FIGURE 5, the handle 14 extends at a angle with respect to the flat bottom surface of the head. In FIGURE 6, the shaft has been set at an angle with respect to the head and in FIGURE 7 the shaft has been rotated about its longitudinal axis so that the shaft curves rearwardly from the flat stroking face of the club.

The club head 12 in the illustrated embodiment has a configuration somewhat similar to a mallet and includes front and rear flat-stroking faces 18 disposed between a pair of extended shoulder portions 20. The head 12 has a rectangular opening 22 extending entirely through the club head from front to back to accommodate an insert block 24. The block 24 is dimensioned to fit snugly within the opening 22 and is provided with grooved outer surfaces 26 which are the stroking faces of the club. The block 24 is held in position by means of pins 28 extending diagonally through the club head and through the body of the block 24. The block may be removed by driving out the pins and then pressing the block through the opening 22.

The block 24 is characterized by upwardly facing interior channel 30 having a pair of indents 32 and 34 formed in the bottom wall thereof. The indents 32 and 34 are employed for cooperating in locking engagement with a detent 36 formed on the lower end of the club shaft 14. The end of the shaft is also provided with a block follower 38 which is square in cross section, as viewed in FIGURE 4 and dimensioned to fit snugly, yet slidably, within the channel 30. The function of the follower is to lock the shaft 14 against rotation with respect to the head 12 when the follower is in its normal position within the channel 30.

As best shown in FIGURE 2, the lower end of the shaft 14 extends through a vertical opening 40 formed through the upper mid-portion of the head 12 into communication with the opening 22 which accommodates the block 24. The upper end of the head 12 is peripherally threaded for engaging a nut 42. The nut is formed with an opening defining a ball socket 44 to accommodate an annular ball member 46 slidably mounted on the shaft 14. A coil spring 48 is compressed between the lower portion of the ball member 46 and the upper shoulder of the follower 38 to urge the ball member 46 into seating engagement with socket 44 and at the same time urge the detent 32 into seating engagement with the indent 34 or 36, as the case may be.

The two indents are spaced from one another at the base of the channel with indent 32 being located in the center directly below the opening 40 while the indent 34 is located to one side thereof. In practice the club may be set into any one of the three operating positions shown in FIGURES 5, 6 and 7. In FIGURE 5 the shaft 14 is at a right angle relative to the fiat base of the head. In this position the detent 36 is located in the indent 32 as shown in FIGURES 2 and 4. In FIGURE 6 the shaft 14 is angularly ofiset from the flat base of the club head and in this position the detent 36 is located in the indent 34. The adjustment in position is made by grasping the head in one hand and the shaft in the other and then pulling the shaft with sufficient force to overcome the spring 48. This will release the detent from the indent 32 and the handle is swiveled so as to snap the detent into the indent 34. In the position of FIGURE 5, the

3 club may be used for playing on a flat surface and with the players head directly over the club head. In FIGURE 6 the club may be used on an inclined surface or with the club extended out in front of the player as desired.

In certain situations it is desirable to stroke the ball by swinging the club between the legs as a mallet. For this type of stroke the club is set in the position shown in FIGURE 7 with the club head rotated 90 about the longitudinal axis of the shaft. This position of the club is obtained by pulling the shaft against the spring 48 so that the block follower 38 comes entirely out of the channel 30. With the follower clear of the channel the shaft and follower are rotated 90 and then snapped back into the channel with the detent 36 in the center indent 32. The club will then be in the position illustrated in FIGURE 7.

The club illustrated and described herein is of simple, rugged construction and may be produced at a relatively low cost. In addition its flexibility adds interest to the game and permits the golfer to adopt anyone of a variety of stances as is best suited to the position of the ball and the judgement of the player. The club may be quickly and easily changed from one position to another by merely pulling the shaft against the head and selecting the desired position. When released, the head will snap firmly into locked position and the club may be put to use.

While the invention has been described with particular reference to the illustrated embodiment, it will be understood that numerous modifications thereto will appear to those skilled in the art. It also should be understood that the above references and accompanying drawings should be taken as illustrative of the invention and not in a limiting sense.
