Application filed December 9, 1914. Serial No. 876,289. Q
I wish to call particular attention to the strap 18 for by making the pad thicker at this particular place it assists the player in securing a firmer grip of the club.
It should also be noted that my pad is in no sense a love and therefore does not interfere with ac free movement and set of the joints of the fingers and thumb and consequently, the firmness of the grip is not impaired.
Having thus described my invention what I claim'and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is:
As a new article of manufacture, a hand pad composed of a body having finger holes and a thumb hole, a relatively narrow rectangular strap secured to and extending diagonally across the body and disposed between the finger and thumb holes, the side edges of said strap being spaced from the inner ends of the finger and thumb holes,
a separate securing strap connected to the base of the body and extending thereacross and disposed beyond and adjacent the outer end of the thumb hole base, the ends of the securing strap extending beyond the sides of the body and having cooperating fastening means. a
