,2 Claims. (cum-1.5)

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a golf bag, and has particular reference to a golf bag having a golf ball holder associated therewith.

The principal object'of the present invention is I adapted towfrictionally hold'a score cardn One of said-clips: is offset outwardly intermediate its ends-to presentra loop for carrying a pencil. i Referring to'Figs, 3 and 5, it will beseenthat 7 a compartment 22 :is formed bya'vertically .dis-

the provision of a golf bag of rigid construction 7 having a member :secured to the inner surface thereof and forming in conjunction therewith a substantially tubular golf ball holder, said golf bag having a hold formed in the Wall thereof adjacent each end of said' holder through which golf balls may be-inserted into and withdrawn from said holder and spring detents normally preventing the passage of balls through said holes.

- Another object is the provision,- in a golf bag having a ball holder of the character described, of a longitudinal extension of said ball holder to form a compartment adapted to contain golf tees or other objects, said compartment being accessible through a door provided in the wall of the bag.

Other objects are simplicity and economy of construction, efificiency and convenience of use, and pleasing appearance.

With these objects in view, as well as other objects which will appear in the course of the I specification, reference will be had to the drawings, wherein:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of a golf bag embodying the present invention.

Fig. 2 is a front elevation of the golf bag.

Fig. 3 is an enlarged fragmentary section taken on line III 1II of Fig. 2, showing golf balls carried in the ball holder and one of said balls being withdrawn therefrom.

Fig. 4 is an enlarged fragmentary section taken on line IV-IV of Fig. 3.

Fig. 5 is an enlarged fragmentary section taken on line V-V of Fig. 3.

Like reference numerals apply to similar parts throughout the several views, and the numeral 2 applies to a rigid golf bag comprising essentially a cylindrical sheet metal body member 4 open at its upper end and closed at its lower end by a rigid floor member 6. Said bag is provided with a carrying handle 8 rigidly attached to body member 4 adjacent the upper end thereof, and a shoulder carrying strap I0 fixed at one end by means of snap fastener l2 to a lug l4 fixed to body member 4 adjacent the upper end thereof, and at its opposite end adjustably carried in a buckle I6 fixed to body member 4 at a point spaced below lug l4. A pair of spring clips 16 are fixed to the outer surface of the bag and are posed'sheett of metal 24 having its loweredge rigidly; secured to bag'floor 6 and having its upper end portion bent ou'twardlyto form'asegmental flange 26 confor'ming substantially to the contour of body member 4. t The other wallsof s'aidcompartment are formed by body member 4 and bag fioor 6." Said compartment'is adapted to contain golf tees-or other. small objects, and is' accessible through an opening 28Lformed in the Wall of body member 4. Said opening is normally closed by a :door 30 hinged to said body member at 32 and secured in the closedposition byia sliding latch 34 operablefrom outside ofith'e bag A vertically disposed strip 36 of sheet metal somewhat narrower than wall 24 is rigidly fixed at its lower end to the upper edge portion of wall 24, and has its upper end portion 38 bent outwardly and welded or otherwise fixed to the inner surface of body member 4. Said sheet metal strip is provided along its vertical edges with outwardly turned flanges 40 extending substantially the length thereof, and forms in conjunction with body member 4 a golf ball compartment 42 of a size suitable for containing golf balls 44 in stacked relation therein. Balls may be inserted one at a time into said compartment through a suitably dimensioned hole 46 formed in body member 4 adjacent the upper end of compartment 42, andwithdrawn from said compartment as desired through a hole 48 formed in body member 4 adjacent the lower end of compartment 42. Hole 48 is laterally elongated by bights 50 at each side thereof for permitting insertion of the fingers into compartment 42 to grasp the lowermost ball 44 to withdraw it from the holder. Flanges 40 are cut away at 52 adjacent hole 48 to permit the fingers to grasp said ball firmly.

A pair of spring detents 54, one carried by an arm 56 having its rearward end rigidly attached to strip 36 and disposed adjacent the upper edge of hole 46, and the other carried by flange 26 adjacent the lower edge of hole 48, serve to obstruct said holes partially and to prevent golf balls from passing through said holes accidentally. Said detents must be resiliently depressed as shown in Fig. 3 before a ball may be passed through the adjacent hole. Said detents are of a commercially available type and will be more fully described hereinafter. An

elongated sheet of rubber 58 or other suitable material is fixed at its upper end to the inner surface of body member 4 above the upper end of metal strip 38, by any suitable means such as rivets 60, and hangs downwardly adjacent the outer surfaces of metal shets 36 and 24 to the floor of the bag. Said sheet prevents golf clubs from entering the upper end portion of the golf ball compartment by deflecting them into the portion of the bag not occupied by that compartment, and protects the clubs from marring or scratching on the sharp metallic edges.

Minor changes of design and construction could be made without departing from the spirit of the invention, and it is therefore desired to be limited only by the scope of the appended claims;

I claim:

1. In a golf bag of the class described having a rigid tubular body member and a rigid floor member, an angled planar member secured to said floor member and forming in conjunction with said floor and said body member a tee compartment, said body member having an opening formed in the wall thereof to provide access to said tee compartment, an outwardly opening channel member secured at its upper end to said body member and at its lower ends to said planar. member to form in conjunction with said body member an essentially tubular golf ball compartment, said golf ball and tee compartments having a common dividing wall, said body member having openings formed therein, adjacent the opposite ends of said ball compartment for the insertion and removal of balls therefrom, and

a spring detent partially obstructing each of said openings and normally preventing the passage of golf balls therethrough.

2. In a golf bag of the class described having a rigid tubular body member and a rigid floor member, an angled planar member secured to said floor member and forming in conjunction with said floor and said body member a tee compartment, said body member having an opening formed in the wall thereof to provide access to said tee compartment, a hinged door normally covering said opening, an outwardly opening channel member secured at its upper end to said body member and at its lower end to said planar member to form in conjunction with said body member an essentially tubular golf ball compartment, said golf ball and tee compartments having a common dividing wall, said body member having openings formed therein adjacent the opposite ends of said ball compartment for the insertion and removal of balls therefrom, a

spring detent partially obstructing each of said openings and normally preventing the passage of golf balls therethrough, and a sheet of pliable, resilient material fixed to the inner surface of said body member above said compartments and hanging downwardly adjacent the inner walls of said ball and tee compartments.

ORRIN W. GIELOW.
