J. KOREY June 11, 1968 GOLF GLOVE Filed Nov. 5, 1966 4 R \Pv MM "K.

W W /\l United States Patent 3,387,306 GOLF GLOVE John Korey, 75 Prentice Road, Newton, Mass. 02159 Filed Nov. 3, 1966, Ser. No. 591,846 1 Claim. (til. 2159) ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A golf glove made of soft material such as kidskin. It is shaped to fit the hand, having the normal full third, fourth, and fifth fingers, but has its thumb extend to the knuckle and its index finger extend to the second knuckle inward from the end of the finger. The thumb and index finger portions are open and not covered, whereas the other fingers as well as the back and palm are covered although they may have air holes or similar perforations. The glove is suitable for putting as well as driving.

This invention relates to a novel golf glove suitable for both putting and driving.

In playing the game of golf, it has been found that a soft glove such as a kidskin glove is of help in controlling the motion of a golf club. However, a glove normally interferes with the sense of touch or causes the hand to sweat. It is therefore a common practice for a golfer to use the glove for driving but to remove the glove when he putts. It should be noted that the golf glove is customarily Worn on the left hand (for a right-handed person) with the gloved left hand being above the naked right hand.

The golf glove of this invention need not be removed for putting out can be used continuously for both driving and putting. The golf glove of this invention is made of flexible material, preferably soft, and comprises a substantially full palm section, a substantially full back section, substantially closed sections for the third, fourth and fifth fingers, a fore-finger section extending to the second knuckle in from the tip and being open on its end, and a thumb section extending to the knuckle and being open on its end. The ends of the thumbs and forefinger sections can extend up to or just below their particular knuckles. However, they must not extend over the knuckles so as to interfere in any way with their flexing. The glove can be a button or clasp type or it can be a stretch type. Generally, as in other golf gloves, it is preferable not to have a lining. Preferred materials of 3,387,306 Patented June 11, 1968 "ice construction include calfskin and kangaroo-skin. Small ventilating openings can be incorporated in any portion of the glove including the bodies of the fingers, the fingertips, the palm or the back.

A detailed example of the glove of this invention is illustrated in the drawings appended hereto, wherein:

FIG. 1 is a back view of the glove as mounted on the left hand of a right-handed person.

FIG. 2 is a view from the palm side of the mounted glove shown in FIG. 1.

The glove 11 is shown mounted on the hand 12. The thumb 13 with its knuckle 14 is shown extending through the thumb section 14a. The fore-finger 15 with its second knuckle section 16 is shown extending through the forefinger section 15a of the glove. The third, fourth and fifth fingers of the hand are encased respectively in finger sections 17, 18 and 19 which are shown closed. It should be noted that palm 20 is full as is the back 21, although ventilating perforations 24 are provided in various sections of the glove, as for example, the backs of the fingers. The glove is made by conventional construction, as for example, stitching 22 and has a conventional type clasp 23.

I claim:

1. A flexible golf glove comprising:

(1) a substantially full palm section;

(2) a substantially full back section;

(3) individual substantially full and closed sections for each of the third, fourth and fifth fingers;

(4) a fore-finger section being open at its outer end, the length of said fore-finger section being such as to extend within the second inward knuckle area of a wearers forefinger; and

(5) a thumb section being open at its outer end, the

length of said thumb section being such as to extend within the outward knuckle area of a wearers thumb, which glove need not be removed for putting but can be used continuously for both driving and putting.
