JOHN WILLIAM HARTLEY; ors'ron 1, ENGLAND.

G'QLFCLUB.

srncirioe'rlon forming part of we. Patent No. 648,256, dated April 24, 1900. Application filed November 11,1999. Serial No. 736,681. on man? I concern: Be it known that JOHN WILLIAM HART- LEY, engineer, asubject of the Queen of Great Britain, residing at Newcastle road, Stone, in the county of Stafford, England, have invented new and useful Improvementsin Golf- Clubs, of which the following is a clear and exact description.

My invention relates to golf'clubs; audthe To all whom it object thereof is to provide a club which will prevent the shock being transmitted to the hands of a player using the same when the ball used in playing the game is unfairly struck or en unyielding obstacle is unwittingly hit when an endeevoris made to strike the hell. by the invention injury to the club is also prevented when an obstacle is unintentionnlly struck, and the golf ground rcourse is saved from injury when the club comes into contact therewith instead of the m ll,

To this end the invention includes a golfclub having the head and handle portions secured to each other ine manner to permit relative movement of the two parts with means for yieldingly holding the parts to gether and in position.

The invention is illustrated in the accom pnnying drawings, in which Figure l is an elevation of a club constructed according to the invention. Fig. 2 is a detail view of the end 01: the handle portion of the club. Fig. 3 is a. ,vicw'of the head portion of the club. to Fig. 1 of n modified form of club. Fig. 5 is a cross-sectional view on the line Q Q Fig. 1. Figs. 6, 7, and 8 showcross-sectionnl views of clubs constructed according to the invention with modified l'orms of'pivolnl connections. Figs. and 1' show elevationsof modified forms of the invention. Figs. 11 and 12 are cross-sectional views illustrating modified forms of pivotal connections. Figs. 13 and 14 show two elevations of another modification-of the invention. Figs. 15- and 16 show detail views in elevation and plan of another modification.

Figs. 17, 18, and ii) are detail views of further modifications.

According to the invention the head and handle portions of the club instead of being lashed firmly together or made in one piece, as is the usual method, are pivotally connected to each other and a yielding band turn.

Fig. 4 is a view similar fitted-around the shank portion ofthe head and the handle either above or below the pivotal point or both above and below the pivotal point. This band or the bands hold the parts together firmly enough to give the best eifect when the ball is fairly struck, and yet they permit the parts to move relatively to each other when an unyielding obstacle is unwittingly struck, so to relieve the shock to the club and decrease the force of the blow. The bands also to an extent give a cushioning effect.

In the/form of the invention shown in Figs. 1, 2, 3, and 5 the end of the hnndleS is beveled and flattened along one side to form a tapering end, and to this fiat beveled part a pletel is secured, being preferably countersunk therein. vThis plate carries astud F, which forms the pivot on which the parts The shank of the'hend ii is tapered and flattened along one side to correspond to the beveled portion of the handle. To this portion a thin metal plate A is secured by lushings T. In alineincnt with the stud I" the body of the plate A is turned inwardly to provide a beari rig to receive the stud. Around the shank and handle at the'pivotal point a. leather band I. is fitted, which riots to hold the parts securely" together at this point. Ah'ove and below the pivotal point elastic or yielding bendsR'arc fitted around the shank and handle.

In the form illustrated in Fig. l the plate A and lashings are dispensed with and the pivot'connecting the parts finds a bcaringdircctly in the body of the shank of the head. In Fig. the pivot la is shown as extending through both the shank of the head and the handle, both of those parts being surrounded by metal ferrules o.

In Fig. 7 the stud F which extends from a plate countersunk in the handle S, passes entirely through the shank of the head and is surmounted by a nut which when screwed up-Winds a bearing on a segmental metal plate which rests against the shank of the head II.

In Fig. 8 the handle and shank are sur-- rounded by'rnetel ferrules 0, held to the parts by bolts P", these ferrules having extensions to one side of the periphery of the ,parts through which the pivot F extends.

In Fig. i) the abutting faces of the handle and shank of the head are correspondingly serrated or stepped, as at At the pivotal point each of the parts is fitted with a plate this instance forms the pivot. A leather band I L surronnds the clnb at the pivotal point, and" a series of yielding bands R are arranged above-and below the p'ivotal point.

In Figs. 10; 1-1, and 12 a form of 'the'invention is shown in which a metal head H having an integral shank extension through which a socket extends, is used; A wood eoniinuation w oft-his shank is fittedx'and held in this socket. The pivotal connection is formed by a stud F, projecting 'from' a plate F countersunk in and secured to the handle by'sere'ws D, the stud finding a bearing in the shank of the head, The arrangement of the bands L and R R is similar to that shown inFig.1. Asshown in Figs. 13 and 14, the head H may be pivotallyconneeted to theend of the h'andle and a single yielding band B em- "played, which is arranged above the pivotal connection. In this form of the invention theshank and handle end are not correspondingly formed or shaped. The end of the handle is preferably fitted with a. ferrule Tfthrough which the pivot-bolt} extends,-

washerlll R being interposed between the handle andthe shank and a nut M iieing screwed upon the end otthe bolt. A wedge S maybe'dri-ven' into the endof the handle toexjpan d thesame in the ferrule.

Intthe form of'tlie invention shown in Figs.

15:10, 17, ax 15118 a eapS is'fitted upon the an Q1. Fl

, g 'twfhichrtzhe shank of thehead n'pwqi' n The side of the cap adjacent to the may-be toothed, as at P to re- 7 of which is pivotally secured to the end of the shank. The elastic bands surround the shank and cap at a .point between the pawl and the'pivotal connection; By'means of the pawl the relative adjustment of the head and .has a hut 2 on its end- 9 Washers M R are also'used. g Fig. 19 shows a modification of the form .lastzdescribed"; the cap S" having the lugs J J 2 extending longitudinally" freak-tho endthereof. m'lhe'pawl is in this case carried directly by the capand the end of the shank is toothed. g

I claima r g 1. A golt-clnb having the head pivoted to the handle thereof, and yielding means for holding the parts against relative displacement.-

- 2. A golf'club having the head thereof pivthe parts in position. 3. A golf-club having the head provided with an extension, the stem, a pivot extending through the head extension and the stem for holding the partsto gether; and a flexible band eneircling said extension and stem to yieldingly hold the parts against relative displacement. p 4. In a golf-club, a stepped or serrated radial jointing-surface X between the shank of the golf-head and the handle and yielding or as described. In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand,'this 1st day of November, 1899, in the presence of two attesting .witnesses.
