GOLF-CL UB Application filed January 27, 1968.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented May 1.8, 1909.

Serial No. dmdifl.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JOHN YOUDS, a subj ect of the King of Great Britain and Ireland, of the Golf Club, Chiselhurst, in the county of Kent, England, have invented new and use ful Improvements in Golf-Clubs, of which the following is a specification.

My invention has for its object to provide a golf club with a striking face better adapted for certain requirements of the game of golf than are the striking faces of the characters hitherto used.

I have found that if-the striking faces of golf clubs (such as utters and approach irons more especial y) be made of lead, the effect on the ball (and especially on a ball with a rubber core) is better and more cer tain in the required effect, especially in approaching and putting, than is the case with striking faces of the characters hitherto used. I therefore apply to clubs with steel, aluminium, iron, wood, or other, heads, a striking face of lead which may be fixed to the head in any convenient way, such, for example, as by being cast, or other wise held securely and permanently, a recess in the head, 'or by being screwed, or otherwise fixed, to the head, so as to forin a striking face which constitutes ractically an immovable and fixed part of tlie head of the club. When the lead is applied by casting, the club head may be formed with undercut parts into which part of the lead enters in casting, so as to permanently fix the lead to the head, and when screws, or other fastenings, are used, the head and lead facing may be formed with engaging parts as for example beveled edges to give a firm fixture'of the lead to the head, as shown in Figures 6 and 7.

The accompanying drawing represents golf clubs made in accordance with my invention, in which the lead striking face is i applied by casting, but I do not limit myself to the application ofthe lead by casting.

Fig. 1 is an elevation, Fig. 2 a trans verse section, and Fig. 4 a plan, of the head and part of the stick of a putter, Figs. 1 and 3 showing the head repared for receiving the lead striking face, and Fig. 2 showing the lead strikin face applied. Fig. 4 is an elevation, and *ig. 5 is a transverse section, of an approach iron. with a lead striking face applied thereto; Fig. 6 is an elevation; and Fig. 7 is a transverse section of the same with the lead applied thereto in a different manner.

' In the head 1 I make a recess 2 which is undercut at the ends 3. In the head, at the back of this recess, I make openings 4 which are preferably undercut, or, better still, screw-threaded, .as then the can be readily formed by a screw-ta T e head is then placed in a suitable liolder, or .mold, and molten lead is poured in so that it fills the openings 4 and recess 2 and on solidifying is firmly and securely held therein and, after any necessary trimming up, constitutes the striking face 5. The foregoing descri tion applies to both the clubs shown in the rawing. As the putter (Figs. 1, 2 and 3) is used on grass, the lead can extend down to the lower edge, but as the approach iron (Figs. 4 and 5) is used on ground which may be hard and rough, it is referable not to make the recess for the lea right through to the underside, but to leave at bottom. a ridge 7 of the original hard metal. In any case, an edge of the original materialof the club head may be left either at top, or bot tom, of the recess, or at both the too (Figs. 6 and 7) and bottom, to protect the lead. from injury.

Having now particularly described and ascertained the nature of my said invention and in what manner the same is to be performed, I declare that What I claim is 1. A golf club of the class specified having a head and a striking face of lead secured thereto.-

2. A golf club of the class s ecified having a head and a striking face 0 soft metal secured thereto.

3. A golf club of the class specified having a hard metal'head and a striking face of soft metal secured thereto.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

' JOHN YOUDS.
