Description

April 1, 1969 A. G. HYDEN RES ILIENT COVER FOR GOLF BAG STRAP Filed Sept. 5, 1967 U\\ LNTOA ALS/E. G. HYDEN BY ATTORNEYS United States Patent O 3,435,867 RESILIENT COVER FOR GOLF BAG STRAP Alsie G. Hyden, 13 SE. 98th, Oklahoma City, Okla. 73114 Filed Sept. 5, 1967, Ser. No. 666,241 Int. Cl. A63b 55/00; A45c 1/04 U.S. CI. 150-1.5 4 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION Many players still desire the convenience of carrying a golf bag with clubs on their shoulder in the typical manner of utilizing a longitudinal strap which normally extends from a fixed pivotal position usually at the top of the bag downwardly to an adjustable position at a. buckle. Such straps are normally very narrow in width and inadequately padded to prevent some discomfort to the player. Prior artisans have attempted to alleviate this discomfort by various and sundry types of pads which have been threaded upon the strap. However, these have not been entirely satisfactory for one reason that they tend to slide or change their position upon the strap and in addition have not really alleviated the aforesaid discomfort.

SUMMARY Accordingly, it is the primary object of this invention to provide an attachment for a strap member particularly found with most golf bags and overcome the objections to heretofore known prior art devices.

An additional object of this invention is to provide a longitudinal and cylindrical resilient (i.e. sponge rubber) member about which an immovable outer cloth is retained, the inside diameter of the cylindrical member being slightly greater than the largest width of the strap. The cylindrical member may be covered with a cloth material encapsulating said cylindrical member and including a strap adjacent its upper end which is adjustably attachable to the top ring of the golf bag to which the main strap is attached and hence provide means for adjustably positioning the resilient member to the main golf bag strap.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS FIGURE 1 is a perspective view depicting the strap of this invention in conjunction with a golf bag shown somewhat in a phantom line drawing.

FIGURE 2 is a sectional view taken along the line 2-2 of FIGURE 1.

DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENT Referring now to the drawings, a golf bag which may be of any typical or well known size, shape or material is adapted to receive clubs, a few of which are generally indicated at 12. Although fourteen clubs in all is the legal maximum allowed by the established rules of the professional golf association, a few are shown here only for explanatory and descriptive purposes. In a typical golf bag construction a high strength longitudinal seam 13 is usually provided from the top of the bag to the bottom. Typically, at the top thereof a metallic ring member 16 is pivotally attached to a fixed loop 17. The main longitudinal strap 14 typically at the top end thereof is looped upon itself through the ring 16 and bradded at 19. The other free end of strap 14 is typically attached at a lower point along the same longitudinal strengthening member 13 by a buckle 15 to provide various length settings of the strap 14 as desired by the player. The golf bag improvement of this invention is best described in FIGURE 2 which depicts a substantially cylindrical longitudinal resilient member 32, typically formed of a sponge or foam rubber or resilient synthetic materials such as polyurethane foam. The cylindrical member is approximately 14 to 18 inches in length and of inner diameter larger than the width of said strap 14 so as to be easily insertable thereabout. Although the resilient element 32 could be utilized in and of itself, it is preferable that an outer covering 30 typically of a smooth and soft cloth material be retained thereabout as for example by an elastic end portion 34. A strap member 20 includes a buckle 22 so as to permit the free end 21 to be looped through the metallic ring 16 and thereafter buckled and adjusted to retain number 18 at a desired and comfortable location on golf bag strap 14 which is the most comfortable position to the player and user thereof.

The invention has been described with reference to specific and preferred embodiments. It will be apparent, however, that other modifications can be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.

What is claimed:

1. In a golf bag having a shoulder strap pivotally attached at one end to a ring at the top of said bag and adjustably and removably attached at the other free end to means such as a buckle, the improvement comprising:

a longitudinal cylindrical sponge rubber member the inside diameter of which is slightly larger than the width of said strap, said member inserted about said strap, and

adjustable means attachable between said top of said bag and said member to maintain said member in a desired position on said strap.

2. The improvement of claim 1 including a removable cloth covering for said member.

3. The improvement of claim 2 wherein said adjustable means is attached to said cloth covering and attachable to said ring of said bag.

4. The improvement of claim 3 wherein said means includes straps and a buckle.
