My 16, 1950 w. TJPREVIDI 2,508,190

GOLF BALL POCKET Filed Jan. 24, 1947 IN V EN TOR. \A/ILLIAM T. PRavlm over and onto the rear side of the front piece 3! the top marginal portion 35 of the front piece 3| and then applying the stitching 35. Whipstitching is next applied as indicated at 3'! to anchor the opposite ends of the elastic 34, with the elastic suitably stretched, to the ribs 30.

The inner pocket 21 is here shown as subdivided, by a line of stitching 38 going through the front and back pieces 29 and 3 I, for carrying two golf balls each in its own compartment. As will be understood, the inner pocket 21 may be further subdivided, when made of proper length, to accommodate more than two golf balls.

In order to suspend the inner pocket at the outside of the outer pocket II), when it is desired to have the golf balls in the former quickly removable, the closure for the outer pocket is opened and the inner pocket is lifted out and dropped to hang outside the outer pocket, but then without chance of accidentally losing a golf ball, due to the action of the elastic 34 in holding gathered the upper mouth of the inner pocket.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise construction herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:

1. In combination with a member having an outer pocket formed of adjacent front and rear walls with the front wall formed with a horizontal elongated pocket opening closed by a slide fastener, an inner pocket for golf balls within the outer pocket, comprising back piece of material secured along its top edge to the insid face of the front wall of the outer pocket above the pocket opening to depend across the pocket opening within the outer pocket, and a front piece of material secured along its side and bottom edges to the face of said back piece of material djacent the inner face of the front wall of the outer pocket, said front piece of material being of less height than said back piece of material and secured to said back piece so as to have its top edge normally below the pocket opening of the outer pocket, said inner pocket being of a width less than the length of the pocket opening and secured to the inside face of the front wall of the outer pocket midway of the length of the pocket opening, whereby when the pocket opening is open the inner pocket while containing golf balls may be drawn through the pocket opening to depend along the outer face of the front wall of the outer pocket facilitating insertion and removal of golf balls from the inner pocket.

2. In combination with a member having an outer pocket formed of adjacent front and rear walls with the front wall formed with a horizontal elongated pocket opening closed by a slide fastener, an inner pocket for golf balls within the outer pocket, comprising a back piece of material secured along its top edge to the inside face of the front wall of the outer pocket above the pocket opening to depend across the pocket opening within the outer pocket, and a front piece of material secured along its side and bottom edges to the face of said back piece of material adjacent the inner face of the front wall of the outer pocket, said front piece of material being of less height than said back piece of material and secured to said back piece so as to have its top edge normally below the pocket opening of the outer pocket, said inner pocket being of a width less than the length of the pocket opening and secured to the inside face of the front wall of the outer pocket midway of the length of the pocket opening, whereby when the pocket opening is open the inner pocket while containing golf balls may be drawn through the pocket opening to depend along the outer face of the front wall of the outer pocket facilitating insertion and removal of golf balls from the inner pocket, and means mounted along the upper edge of said front piece of material for retaining golf balls within the inner pocket.

3. In combination with a member having an outer pocket formed of adjacent front and rear walls with the front wall formed with a horizontal elongated pocket opening closed by a slide fastener, an inner pocket for golf balls within the outer pocket, comprising a back piece of material secured along its top edge to the inside face of the front wall of the outer pocket above the pocket opening to depend across the pocket opening within the outer pocket, and a front piece of material secured along its side and bottom edges to the face of said back piece of material adjacent the inner face of the front wall of the outer pocket, said front piece of material being of less height than said back piece of material and secured to said back piece so as to have its top edge normally below the pocket opening of the outer pocket, said inner pocket being of a width less than the length of the pocket opening and secured to the inside face of the front wall of the outer pocket midway of the length of the pocket opening, whereby when the pocket opening is open the inner pocket while containing golf balls may be drawn through the pocket opening to depend along the outer face of the front wall of the outer pocket facilitating insertion and removal of golf balls from the inner pocket, said front piece of material having its top edge turned downward and inward and secured to the inside face of the front piece of material forming a tunnel for an elastic, and a piece of elastic extended through said tunnel and having its ends secured to the sides of said inner pocket under tension preventing accidental loss of golf balls from the inner pocket. 7

4. In combination with a member having an outer pocket formed of adjacent front and rear walls with the front wall formed with a horizontal elongated pocket opening closed by a slide fastener, an inner pocket for golf balls within the outer pocket, comprising a back piece of material secured along its top edge to the inside face of the front wall of the outer pocket above the pocket opening to depend across the pocket opening within the outer pocket, and a front piece of material secured along its side and bottom edges to the face of said back piece of material adjacent the inner face of the front wall of the outer pocket, said front piece of material being of less height than said back piece of material and secured to said back piece so as to have its top edge normally below the pocket opening of the outer pocket, said inner pocket being of a width less than the length of the pocket opening and secured to the inside face of the front wall of the outer pocket midway of the length of the pocket opening, whereby when the pocket opening is open the inner pocket while containing golf balls may be drawn through the pocket opening to depend along the outer face of the 7 front wall of theouter pocket facilitating insertion and removal of golf balls from the inner pocket, said front piece of material having its top edge turned downward and inward and secured to the inside face of the front piece of material forming a tunnel for an elastic, and a piece of elastic extended through said tunnel and having its ends secured to the sides of said inner pocket under tension preventing accidental loss of golf balls from the inner pocket, and a vertical line of stitches engaged through the pieces of material of the inner pocket midway of the sides thereof from the top edge of the front piece of material to the bottom edges of the pieces of material dividing the inner pocket into adjacent pocket portions for individually receiving golf balls.
