L. V. BARACH GOLF CLUB Filed Nov. 5. 1924 0.539.' yINTOR Patented Oct. 27, 1925.

LOUIS V. BARACH.4 OF PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA.

GOLF CLUB.

Application led November To all whom #may concern.;

Be itknown that l, LoUIs V. BARACH, a citizen of the United States, residing at Pittsburgh, in the county of Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have invented cern tain new and useful Improvements in Golf Clubs, of which the following is a specifica tion.

titl" This invention relates to improvements in golf clubs, particularly to the type of golf clubs commonly known as driven brassie, and spoon.

The primary object of the invention is to provide a golf club head having a. metallicbody portion embodying novel means for securing the wooden club men'iher thereto.

important objects of the. invention are to provide a golf club enibodying a threadably engaged attachment between the shaft and the head thereof, whereby the head may be readily and quickly removed from the shaft or attached thereto;- which provides an aitachment between the shaft and head which will be maintained in the. secured position by the driving movement and impact of the club when in use; under such conditions providing a detachable sliaitl which may be interchangeably used in connection with any of the entire variety of golf club heads. thereby reducing the initial cost of a complete set o clubs and obviating the necessity of carrying a cumbersome load of golf clubs around the course.

Further objects of he invention are to provide device of the class stated. which is simple in its construction and arrange ment, strong, durable. and efficient in its use, attractive in appearance and comparaY tively inexpensive to manufacture.

With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment oi the invention herein disclosed can be made within the scope of the claims hereunto appended without departing from the spirit of the' invention.

tion with a portion of theshaft broken away,

Figure 2 is a front'view thereof.

Figure 3 is a perspective view of the metallic body portion. y

Figure e is a sectional view on line lV--Il/v, Figure 2.

Referring in detail to the drawing 1 de notes an integrally formedmetallie body portion consisting of a base 2, neck 3, lip 4, tongue 5 and toe The neclr 3 is angularly disposed and is formed with a socket 7 oi: the outer end portion of which is provided with screw threads 8. The lip 4 'and the tongue 5 extend forwardly fromthe neck 3. 'lhe tongue 5 is disposed intermediate oi' the lip 4 and base l and is substantially wedgeshaped having a tapered forward end Si. The llongue :"i is further Jformed with a threaded aperture 10 disposed adjacent to the forward end thereof. The lip 4 is also formed with an aperture 11 which is die. posed in vertical. alignment relatively to the threaded tongue aperture 10. The toe (l is inclined upwardly at the front end or thc base. 2 and is provided with an aperture 12.

A Wooden club member 13 is mounted in the metallic body portion 1 and is provided at its rear end with a forwardly extending tapering pocket 1f; for the reception of the tongue 5'. The lip 4 overlaps the top ot' the club member i3 and the latter is iixedly se cured in position by means of the screw 1:3; which extends through the lip aperture 11 and through the portion of the club inember 14 and. threadably engages the threaded vtongue aperture 1G. A sci-ew 16. engaging the toe aperture 1Q, extends into the club member 13. The toe 6 not only provides as an attachment element but also serves as a. protector for wooden club member 1S.

The shaft 17 is detachabiy mounted to the body portion 1. The lower end of the shaft i 17 is provided with a'shank 18, the upper portion of which is formed with threads 1Q adapted to engage the screw/threads 8 oi the socket 7. By providing the stem 18 and socket 7 with but a comparatively short length of threads 19 and AS, respectively, the attachment and removal of the shaft 1T greatly facilitated and expedited.

The engagement of the threads 19 and 8 relatively to each other is such that the im pact of the club head against the golf ball lllll lll?! lll) in practice will tend lto tighten the head on y ythe shaft 17. In other words left hand screw threads are provided on a right hand golf club and right hand screw threadsk are provided on a left hand golf club. While this screw attachment is herein described and illustrated in connection with a golf club, it will be obvious that such attaching means may be employed in connection with any other 'device wherein it is found to be applicable.

What I claim is: 1. In combination, a golf c b comprising a shaft provided with a thr aded shank at `its lower end, a head consistinguof a metallic body portion formed with a threaded socket ada ted for engagingthe shank of said sha a club member formed with a pocket mounted in said body portion, said body club member for securing the latter'in the mounted position. l

2. In combination, a .golf club comprising a shaft provided with a shank at its lower end, a head consistingv of a metallic body portion formed with a threaded socket ed in said body portion` said body portion formed with a tongue extendinginto said pocket and with a lip overlapping the top of said club member, means extending through said lip and said' club member and threadably engaging said tongue for securing the said club member in the mounted position, the front end o-f said body ortion provided with a toe secured to the said club member substantiallyas described and for the purpose set forth.

In testimony whereof I aiiix my signature.

LOUIS V, BARACH.
