L. L... SCOTT GOLF TEE Filed July 17, 1925 FIG-1.

Patented Sept. 15, 1925 uuirso s rA'ras.-PArsNr OFFICE.

Lawns 1.. scorn on em. LOUIS, mssounr,

I Application filed July 17, 1925. we No. 44,809.

To all whom-it may concern:

Be it known that I, Lnwrs L. Scorn, a

citizen of the United States, residing in the city of St. Louis and State of Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Improvewood, so that its cost will be very small.

Another object of my invention is, to so shape the tee so that it cannot be easily broken. 'lees now on the market are shaped aboutas shown on th 'drawing in Figure 5 'of Patent No. 1,529,517, dated March 10th, 1925. I find that the shape of tee as shown .in the above referred to patent is very easily broken, due to the small diameter of the shank just under the head of the tee and also dueto the distance that the shank is stuck into the ound. I

I am aware t at tees are now mad which are adapted to be stuck into the ground to support a golf ball, but there is nothing on the market that in any way resembles my tee, nor that will accomplish what I accomplish with this tee. These tees, are made in difi'erentheijghts so that a player can get any height of tee he is accustomed to using. My invention is illustrated in the accompanyjng drawings in which:

Figure 1 is a sectional view of my one piece golf tee and it shows what I call the igh tee. Figure 2 is-a sectional view of in improved golf tee and it is'what I call my medium teeit will be seen that there is a diiference in the heights of tee between Figures 1 and 2. Both of these tees are shown sticking into a section of earth.

Figure 3 is a top plan view of Figure 1. Referring now to the drawings, the numeral 1 indicates the head of this tee which is formed with a cup shape top 3, on which a golf ball may be set. The numeralfl indicates a shoulder on the head of th1s tee which forms a stop to regulate the height of said tee. The numeral 2 indicates. a

shank which is a part of the head, sald shank being adapted to stick into the ound.

It will be noted that I have provided a golf tee to be stuck into the ound for the purpose of teeing. a golf b 1, which provides a definite eight, and which is constructed in one piece of material that will not easily ibrealn'.

I claim: i

1. A golf tee formed of a singlepiece of material com rising a head adapted to sup port a golf all and having a projecting shank d rectly under said head, said shank being made in two diameters, the larger diameter being adjacent to the head and the smaller diameter being adjacent to the larger diameter and having a pointed end which is adapted to be stuck into the ground.

2. A golf tee formed of a single piece of non-metallic material com rising a head adapted to support a golf all and having a projecting s ank directly under said head, said shank eing made in two diameters, the lar .er diameter being adjacent to the head an the smaller diameterbeingadjacent to the lar er diameter and having'a pointed end which is adapted to be stuck into the ground. 3. olf tee formed of a single piece of materia com rising a head adapted to support a golf all and having a projecting,

shank directly under said head, said shank being made in two diameters, the larger di ameter being adjacent to the head and the smaller diameter being adjacent to the larger diameter and having a pointed end which is adapted to be stuck into the ground, said small diameter shank being relatively short in length In testimony whereof, I hav hereunto set my hand.
