GOLF TEE HOLDER Filed OC. 28, 1952 ll' l* I l M nl IWWMIWMTHWHTMIINIHNUINHllHlMIHINIHIIHIIIMi Patented Apr. 17, 1934 UNITE STATES Application October 28,
This invention relates to holders for golf tees and its general object is to provide a holder that is designed to be detachably secured to' golf bags of various widths, and is capable of receiving and holding an ample supply of tees in a manner whereby they can be easily and conveniently inserted therein and carried without fear of loss and likewise removed therefrom without scratching or marring the bag.
Another object of the invention is to provide a golf tee holder that includes a separate pocket for each tee and is capable of receiving tees of all shapes and sizes.
A further object of the invention is to provide a golf tee holder that is simple in construction,
easy to apply to a golf bag, inexpensive to manufacture and extremely efficient in operation and service.
This invention also consists in certain other 2o features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and speciiically pointed out in the appended claim.
In describing my invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawing wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which:-
Figure 1 is a front elevation of one form of my tee holder.
Figure 2 is a top plan View thereof.
Figure 3 is a sectional view taken approximately on line 3-3 of Figure l, looking in the direction of the arrows.
Figure 4 is a fragmentary sectional view with a part in elevation.
Figure 5 is a fragmentary bottom plan view.
Figure 6 is a fragmentary view illustrating the 4o. application of one form of my holder to a golf bag.
Figure 7 is a similar View showing the application of a different type of tee than that shown in Figure 6.
Figure 8 is a View of a modified form of holder.
NFigure 9 is a sectional View taken approximately on line 9-9 of Figure 8, looking in the direction of the arrows.
Referring to the drawing in detail, and espe- 5o cially to Figures 1 to '7 inclusive, it will be noted that my holder as shown in those gures is in the form of a strap that may be made from any well known material but is preferably formed from a rubber composition.
The holder includes what may be termed a 1932, Serial No. 640,110
body portion 1 that is relatively thick and has its outer surface corrugated to provide enlarged portions 2. Each of the enlarged portions has arranged therein a bore to provide a pocket 3 and lthese pockets are preferably tapered for a portion of their length so that they are capable of accommodating tees having Shanks of various shapes and sizes as will be noted upon inspection of Figures 6 and 7.
The upper surface of the enlarged portion 2 is inclined outwardly and downwardly, and the pockets 3 are disposed at an angle so that when the holder is secured to a bag as shown in Figures 6 and 7, it will be obvious that the tees can be inserted in the pockets and removed therefrom without coming in contact with the bag, with the result they will not scratch or mar the bag.
Secured to one end of the enlarged portion 2 is a buckle 4 that includes penetrating prongs 5 that are adapted to pass through the fiat portion 6 of the strap when the holder is secured to the bag, and as clearly shown in Figure 7.
The form just described, is capable of being secured to bags of various widths, and merely by encircling the strap about the bag and inserting the flat portion 6 in the buckle 4, and when the strap is drawn taut about the bag, the penetrating prongs 5 are thence passed through the flat portion 6 as set forth.
In Figures 8 and 9 I have illustrated a slightly modified form of my invention which in fact is an attachment to be permanently secured to a bag, and includes a corrugated body 7 having flattened ends 8 formed therewith, and the attened ends as well as the body '7 is provided with openings 9 for receiving rivets or the like for securing the holder adjacent to the top of the bag as indicated in Figures 6 and 7.
The corrugated body is otherwise identical with the body 1, in that the enlarged portions formed by the corrugations are provided with bores forming pockets 10 which are tapered for a portion of their length and it will be noted that the upper surface of the body 7 is inclined downwardly so that when use is made of the form as shown in Figures 8 and 9, the tees will likewise not come in contact with the bag in inserting and removing the same from the pockets 10.
While it has been stated, that the holder is preferably formed from rubber, the reason for doing so is so that the inherent resiliency of rubber will have a tendency to grip the tees when arranged in the pockets, therefore loss of the tees will be prevented. However, I want it understood that the holder can be formed from leather or like material without departing from the spirit of the invention.
While I have shown and described a buckle having penetrating prongs, I want it understood that I may employ a buckle with a single prong to be received in any one of a number of openings disposed in the flat portion 6.
It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of my invention will be readily apparent.
I desire it to be understood that I may make changes in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claim.
