It is a further object of my invention to color the panel without discoloring the head;
It is a further object to provide a defined area, such as a panel, so that its exactlocation is'not within the judgment of the decorator but is definitely located by the construction of the club.
It is a further object to provide a panel which will attract the eye to the center of the club, which improves the usefulness of the club in striking the ball.
Referring to the drawings,
Figure 1 is a top plan view of the club v head having the panel;
Figure 2 is av side elevation thereof;
Figure 3 is a section on the line 3-3 of Figure 1.
Referring to the drawings in detail, 1 designates theclub head, the upper-surface of which is coated with an enamel or other coatin; 2 with the exception of the panel portion 3 that is defined by a slot or groove 4: on either side thereof.
This panel may be either left in the natural finish or colored a diverse color from that of the general body of the club head. If desired, the grooves can be filled with some diverse color, such as white that will define the borders of the panel and prevent the observation of any portions of the color from either the panel or the club head where they have run into the groove. This makes a cheap method of providing a well defined panel with regular edges so that any irregularities of the stain or paint may be overcome.
