'1'0 all /10))? it may concern:
Be it known that I, RALPH E. LADUE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Tee Holders for Garments, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to tee holders and has particular reference to devices of that nature adapted for use in connection with garments and other golf accessories.
Among the objects of this invention is to provide a tee holder which is of relative l v simple and inexpensive construction and is particularly adapted to retain a plurality of tees in spaced orderly arrangement and in position to be readily available for use by the. golf player.
Another object of this invention is to provide a tee holder or the like of flexible material such as a fabric, said holder being particularly adapted to retain a plurality of tees or the like in reliable engagement with the holder, said holder being adapted for mounting upon a relatively rigid member such as a taut portion of the golf players garment whereby the holder is operative for making effective the engagement aforesaid.
\Vith the foregoing and other objects in view the invention consists in the arrangement and combination of parts hereinafter described and claimed, and While the invention is not restricted to the exact details of construction disclosed or suggested herein, still for the purpose of illustrating a practical embodiment thereof reference is had to the accompanying drawings in which like reference characters designate the same parts in the several views, and in which- Figure 1 is an elevation of my tee holder in operative position upon a golf players garment.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged view of the same but with the major portion of said garment cut away.
Fig. 3 is Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is Fig. 2.
Referring now more specifically to the drawings, 1 show my tee holder mounted upon a relatively rigid member such as a taut front portion of a golf players garment 10, said tee holder being made of flexible a section on the line 3-3 of a section on the line 4-4 of material such as a fabric and comprising a plurality of pockets 11 formed between the front and rear members 12 and 13 of said tee holder as by means of the stitching lines 14. Generally said pockets will be conceived as being formed in any suitable manner to receive the shanks 15 of a plurality of tees, retaining them in spaced orderly arrangement and with the heads 16 outside of said pockets or generally in such position that said tees will be retained conveniently upon the body of a golf player and so as to be readily available for use. 'A tape 17 may be used along the edge of the tee holder to strengthen the same and add to the ornamental appearance thereof.
As a means for securing a snug and reliable engagement between the tee holder and the individual tees retained therein, said tee holder is retained under tension in a horlzontal direction or transversly to said pockets, thus causing said pockets to grip the shanks of the tees. This object is accomplished by fastening or sewing the tee holder to a taut portion of the garment 10 as aforesaid.
To further provide for a reliable retention of the tees, the heads 16 thereof are brought into direct contact or abutment with an adjacent portion of the tee holder such as the rear ply 13, which is stitched to said garment along the line of stitching 18 adjacent to the openings of said pockets whereby a tension is created between the pockets and the portion of the member 13 above said line of stitching thus providing additional frictional engagement of said tees with the tee holder.
1. In a tee holder for garments and olf accessories, the combination of a flexible front member, a flexible rear member engaging the same to form a plurality of pockets therebetween to receive a plurality of tees, and a substantially fiat supporting member for said .tee holder arranged to retain the same .taut transversely of said pockets, said rear member extending above the openings of said pockets and being secured to said supporting member immediately adjacent to the openings of said pockets whereby the heads of said tees are brought into direct frictional abutment with said rear member, the latter being retained substantially straight along the line along which it is secured to said' supporting member. v 2. In a tee holder for garments and golf accessories, the combination of a supportin member, and-means havin a plurality 0 pockets to receive a plural ty of tees, said :means including a rear member extendin' above the openmgs'of. said pockets, sai
whereby the heads of said tees liein frictional abutment at said rear member through 15 the engagement of the shanks thereof within said pockets.
'3. A tee holder as set forth in claim 2 wherein said rear member is retained taut in a direction lengthwise of the tee holder 20 through the engagement thereof with the suppo nting member as aforesaid, and said pockets are consequently caused to assume a relatively flat form to grip the shanks of said tees.
' In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
