UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
ALFRED T. GOTTLIEB, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
This invention relates to golt` tee holding devices and has for one of its objects the provision of a novel hatband adapted to hold tees in upright positlon.
Another object of my invention is the provision of a decorative tee holder adapted to be removably secured to the band of any hat, shirt or sweater.
A further object of my invention is the provision of a tee holding device adapted. to be disposed longitudinally of a hat hand, shirt., sweater or belt and removably attached thereto.
A still further object of my invention is the provision of a tee holding device disposed in the form of a safety pin adapted to be removably attached to a garment.
Another object of my invention :is the provision of a tee holding pin provided with mechanism for releasably holding golf tees thereon.
Other objects will appear hereinafter the novel features and combinations being more clearly set forth in the appended claims.

Referring particularly to Figs. 1 and 2 of the drawing, the numeral 10 designates a felt or straw hat comprising a band 11 having an elastic portion 11. As shown in Fig. 2 a strip of fabric material 12 is stitched at its extremities to the band 11 on the front side thereof. The band 11 and the fabric strip 12 are stitched together by rows of transversely disposed stitches 1? at; 1spaced intervals the space between the ad jacent rows of stitches 13 and between the band 11 and strip 12 being adapted to receive the pointed end portions of golf tees 14. It should be understood that any dcsired number of sockets similar to those above described may be provided on a hat band and that the tees mounted therein may be readily removed and replaced.
The form of my invention illustrated in Figs. 3, 4t and 5 comprises two substantially adjacent; polygonal pieces of fabrics 15 and 1G stitched together by radially disposed rows of stitches 17 extending from the eenter to points substantially equally spaced from the corner of the polygonal, fabric pieces, the spaces between the rows of stitches being adapted to receive the pointed end of a golf tee 14. The rear polygmial piece 1G is provided with a clip 18 comprising downwardly disposed edge portions 1S) and 2t) which are adapted te be disposed over the upper and lower edges of a hat band for removably securingthe device thereto. The clip 18 preferably comprises material that is sutlieiently ductile to permit the edge portions 1t) and 20 to be firmly clamped on the edges of a hat band. by firmly gripping the edge portions 19 and 2() when a band is disposed therebeneath. The clip 1S may be secured to the. rear polygonal piece 16 by stitches as indicated at 21. 1t should be understood that this form of my invention provides a decorative tee holder that is particularly attractive when tees of various colors are extended from the corners thereof.
In the form of my invention illustrated in Figs. 6 and 7 the `tee holding device comprises a removable holding member formed of two layers of fabric material 28 and 29 which are stitched together alon their side and bottom edges as at 30 and 30 respectively. Converging rows of stitches 31 are disposed through the superimposed layers 28 and 29 forming sockets therebetween for receiving the pointed extremities of the golf tees 14.
Safety pins 39 and 40 of ordinary construction are mounted in the left and right extremities 4of the rear layer 28 for removably attaching the tee holder to a garment. It should be understood that the fabric pieces 28 and 29 may be of any desired length or color.
In the form of my invention illustrated in Figs. 8 and 9, the tee clip comprises a plate 22 having apertures therein, and is provided at one extremity with a head 23 similar to that of an ordinary safety pin head having a groove orniche therein'for receiving the pointed end of a pin member 24' which extends upwardly from the other extremity of the plate 22 and forwardly over the plate 2,2 in the direc-tionof the head 23. The end atie/nds to retain the jaws in closed position for firmly gripping the tee. When the knob 37 is manipulated to separate the jaws the tee is released and permitted to drop or be drawn through the aperture 27 in the plate 22 The tee holder illustrated in Figs. 12, 13 and 14 comprises a substantially flat cardboard base 41 which may be provided on its rear side with a score chart not shown in the drawings. A corrugated member 42 of of the pin 24 adjacent the extremity of the plate 22 from which it extends is disposed in a loop 26 for rendering the in resilient and causing the same to be urgec away from the plate 22. The plate 22 is provided with s apertures 27 for receiving the pointed ends of the tees 14 which are larger at the upper extremities than. the diameter of the apertures 27. It should be understood that the pin 24 may be attached to a hat or garment in the usual manner and that when the pin 24 is engaged in the head 23 the pin holds the material to which it is attached firmly against the lar e extremities of the tees 14 and prevents isengagement thereof from the apertures of the plate 22.
In the form of my invention illustrated in FigsflO and 11, the plate 22 is provided with apertures 27 of sufficient size to permit the passage of the enlarged end of the tee therethrough. A post 32 is mounted on the plate 22 on one side of each of the apertures 27 and a similar post 33 is mounted on the plate 22 on the other side thereof. A clamping member comprising jaws 34 and 35 pivotally attached to the post 32 at one extremity is disposed over each of the apertures 27', above the plate 22 and is 'adapted to clamp the enlarged end of the tee 14 as hereinafter set forth. The right hand end of the jaw 35 is rigidly secured to the post 33 and is provided with an aperture registering with an aperture in the post 33. A rod 36 comprising a knob 37 on its outer end and an enlargement 38 on its inner end is smaller dimensions than the base member 41 is secured to the front side of the base member 41 and is adapted to support golf tees 14 and 14 therein. The golf` tees 14 are inserted downwardly between the base' member and the front member 42 in the corrugations of the latter and the golf tees 14 are disposed upwardly between the front and rear members as above described. It should be understood that the front corrugated member 42 is preferably glued or cemented to the front surface of the base 41 at the middle of the member 42 in such a manner as to divide the upper and lower portions of the front member to limit insertion of the golf tees 14 and 14 for preventing the upper tees 14 from engaging the lower tees 14 and pushing the same from their respective sockets.
rlhe holder illustrated in Figs. 12, 13 and 14 may be conveniently carried in a pocket of a jacket or coat and if desired one of the sockets may be employed for carrying a pencil not shown in the drawing.
- It should be understood that the plate 22 and the mechanism thereon may be employed together with a pin such as illustrated in Figs. 7 and 8. y
Having thus fully shown and described my invention, what is desired to be secured by Letters Patent of the United States is:
1. fA device of the class described comprising superimposed polygonal fabric members, radially disposed rows of stitches extending from the center of said pieces to the sides thereof and terminating at substantially equal distances from the corners thereof, and an attaching member mounted on the rear side of the rear polygonal piece for mounting said superimposed fabric pieces on a hat and other garments, the space between adjacent rows of stitches being adapted to provide a socket for retaining golf tees disposed radially from the center of said superimposed polygonal pieces.
2. A device of the class described, comprising superimposed fabric members,radi
said superimposed pieces, and an attaching 1 member mounted on the rear side of the rear piece for mounting said superimposed pieces 10 on a hat and other garments.
In testimony whereof I have affixed my signature.
