N. J. SAAD GOLF BAG Filed Dec. 28, 1934 f'aten'te'cl Sept. 17, 1935 NHTED STATES- PArsNr oFrtcE 3 Claims.
This invention relates to an improved golf bag and one object of the invention is to provide a golf bag with means for receiving heads and adjoining portions of the shafts of drivers, spoons or other wooden clubs to protect them from contact with irons placed in the same bag and thereby protect the wooden clubs from being scarred by contact with the irons.
Another object of the invention is to provide the bag with a protector for wooden clubs constituting an attachment adapted to be applied to a bag of a conventional construction, thus making it unnecessary to provide a bag of a special construction in order to have the invention incorpcrated therein.
Another object of the invention is to provide a club protector which will be strong in construction and at the same time not add materially to the weight of a bag.
Another object of the invention is to so construct the attachment that the clubs may have their heads and adjoining shaft portions entirely enclosed, access to the clubs being had through openings adapted to be closed by zippers or equivalent means.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the upper portion of a golf bag of the improved construction.
Fig. 2 is a section taken along the line 2-2 of Figure 1.
Figure 3 is a section taken horizontally along the line 3-3 of Figure 1.
Figure ll is a perspective view looking at the lower end of the attachment constituting the subject-matter of this invention.
The golf bag which is indicated in general by the numeral I is of a conventional construction and has the usual strap 2 for engaging over the shoulder so that the bag may be conveniently carried. The wooden clubs 3 and irons 'i are placed in the bag with their heads uppermost and under normal conditions the wooden clubs become scarred by contact with the irons. It is, therefore, desirable to separate the wooden clubs from the irons and protect them from contact with the irons. In order to do so I have provided an auxiliary pocket or shield 5 which is carried by the bag l and extends upwardly therefrom, as shown in Figures 1 and 2.
This shield or auxiliary pocket is formed of leather, canvas, or any other strong, fiexible material and has a shank portion 6 terminating at its upper end in an enlarged head or upper end portion 1. The front wall 8 of the pocket, which may be termed an inner wall, is straight throughout its width, as shown in Figures 3 and 4, but the rear or outer wall 9 is arcuate transversely and has its lower portion extended to form a fiap lo which projects that rivets l l may be passed through this fiap and a portion of the bag and through a strip of metal if disposed externally of the bag. The strip 52 conforms to the curvature of the bag and constitutes a reinforcement so that when the rivets 10 are in place the attachment will be firmly held in place. Side tongues lfi constituting extensions of the inner wall or end portions of a separate strip secured across the lower end of the inner wall, are secured to the bag at opposite sides of the attachment and serVe to assist in securing the device and also as means for retaining the inner wall stretched transversely. Partitions iii' which are formed of the same material as the walls of the pocket are dispos-ed vertically therein and secured to the inner and outer walls thereof. These partitions divide the pocket into a plurality of compartments to receive the clubs and in order to insure proper protection for the clubs, the compartments are lined with plush or any other soft material, as shown at Hi. The clubs are to be inserted and removed through upper ends of the compartments, and in order to do so each compartment has an inlet at its upper end formed by slitting the outer wall, these openings or slits being provided with closures such as the "zippers E6 or equivalent closure means. It will thus be seen that the clubs may be easily inserted and when in place the inlet openings closed to retain them in place where they will be eifectively prevented from becoming scarred by contact with the irons and also prevented from accidentally falling out of the bag. The device may be applied when the bag is made or sold as an accessory and applied to a bag of a conventional construction.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is:
1. In combination with a golf bag, an auxiliary pocket rising from the upper end of the galf bag and open at its lower end whereby certain clubs placed in the bag may extend upwardly into the pocket, the interior of the pocket being divided into a plurality of compartments to receive the clubs, said pocket having inner and outer walls having their side and upper edge portions secured to each other, the upper portion of the outer wall providing upper walls for the pockets and the said upper walls having slits formed therein whereby access may be had to the compartments to perbelow the inner wall in order 5 mit insertion and removal of the clubs, and releasable closures for the slits.
2. In combination with a golf bag, an auxiliary pocket rising from the upper end of the golf bag and open at its lower end whereby certain clubs placed in the bag may extend upwardly into the pocket, said pocket having an outer wall conforming to the transverse curvature of walls of the bag, an inner wall extending between side edges of the outer wall, tongues extending from sides of the pocket and secured against walls of the bag, a depending flap carried by the outer wall and secured against the walls of the bag, an inlet opening being formed in the upper portion of said pocket, and a releasable closure for the opening.`
3. In combination with a golf bag, an auxliary Walls for the compartments and slits being formed in the upper portion of the outer Wall in co- Operating relation to the compartments for permitting insertion and withdrawal of Clubs, re- ,leasable closures for said openings, and linings of softmaterial for the compartments.
