2 Claims.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a holder for golfing articles.

Thepresent invention proposes the construction of a holder for golfing articles characterized by an attachment for suspension from the waist strap of a pair of trousers, a skirt or the like so as to conveniently support a plurality of golf tees, a score card and a pencil for marking the score card so that articles will be within convenient reach while out on a golf course playing a game of golf.

Still further, the present invention proposes characterizing the attachment by a main sheet having its top edge portion bent over the top of the strap and secured in position on the sheet in a manner to provide a tunnel through which the strap can be passed for mounting the attachment on the strap.

Another object of the present invention proposes several difierent ways for attaching the free edge of the bent over top edge of the main sheet to the main body thereof in a manner so that the size of the tunnel can be adjusted to fit straps of different widths or for making it possible to mount the holder in position on the strap or remove it therefrom without having to open the strap.

The present invention further proposes folding the bottom portion of the main sheet upward and securing it in position in a manner to provide a pocket for receiving a score card upon which a golfer can note the number of strokes required to play each hole of the golf course.

Still another object of the present invention proposes constructing the pocket so that one side thereof is divided off in a manner to receive a pencil to be used for marking the strokesupon the score card.

Another object of thepresent invention proposes several different' types of holders for the pencils so that they will be conveniently available for marking the scorecards.

A still further object of the present invention proposes the provision of a holder for golf teeson the main sheet characterized by an elongated strip of material stitched to the main sheet at spaced positions providing vertical passageways to receive the tees from the top thereof and support the same to be readily available by being lifted out of the top of the passageways.

As a further object, the present invention proposed conforming the passageways for the golf tees to the shape of the tees in a manner so that the material of the main sheet and the elongated strip of material will function to frictional- 1y grip the tees and hold them in position within the passageways.

It is a further object of the present invention to provide holders for golfing articles which are simple and durable, which are effective for their intended purposes and which can'be manufactured and sold at reasonable costs.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

.. supporting a plurality of golf tees 31.

Fig. 14 is an enlarged partial transverse sectional view taken on the line L-44 of Fig. 13.

The holder for golf articles, according to the first form of the invention illustrated in Figs. 1 to 4, includes a main sheet of material depended from the Waist strap 2| used for supporting a pair of trousers 22, see Fig. 1. If desired, the main sheet 26 can be depended from the Waist strap of a ladys dress, pair of slacks or the like or from a separate strap worn expressly for supporting the holder.

The main sheet 20 has its top edge portion 23 bent over the top of the strap 2|. In this first form of the invention, the top edge portion 23 is bent over the top of the strap 21 from the front to the rear and has its free edge secured to the rear face of the main sheet 20 by a single line of stitches 24 forming a tunnel 25 for the passage of the waist strap 21.

The bottom portion 26 of the main sheet 20 is folded forward and upward along the front face of the main sheet. The vertical. side edges of the bottom portion are secured to the vertical side edges of the main sheet 20 by lines of stitches 21 forming a pocket for the score card 28. The junction of the bottom portion 26 with the main sheet 26 is reinforced by a line of stitches 29. The top edge 30 of the upwardly bent bottom portion 26 is folded downward and inward and secured in position by a line of stitches 3| finishing off the top edge of the pocket.

The main sheet 20 is provided with means for supporting a pencil 32 in position thereon to be conveniently available for marking the strokes of a game of golf on the score card 28. The pencil supporting means is provided by passing a verticalline of stitches 33 through the upwardly bent bottom portion 28 and the main sheet 25 closely adjacent one side of the main sheet. The line of stitches 33 divides the space between the main sheet 2t and the upwardly bent bottom portion 26 into one wider pocket 3 for the score card 23 and one narrower pocket 35 for the pencil 32. The pencil 32 is provided with a clip 36 by which the pencil can be secured to the top edge portion.

of the material of its respective pocket 35; however, if desired, the clip 36 can be omitted.

A holder is provided on the main sheet 20 for The golf tee holder is comprised of a horizontally elongated strip of material 38 secured at its ends of the front face of the main sheet 20 above the top edge of the score card 23 by lines of stitches 39. Between its attached ends, the strip of material 38 is secured to the front face of the main sheet 26 by spaced lines of stitches in forming vertical passageways 4| for receiving the tees 31. As shown on the drawings, the tees 31 are substantially conical in shape and the lines of stitches 40, on opposite sides of the tees 31 are converged downward and inward. That causes the passageways 4! to be conformed to the shapes of the tees so that the adjacent faces of the main sheet 28 and the strip of material 38 will frictionally grip the tees 31 and retain them in position within the passageways until manually pulled from the top thereof. 1; is appreciated, however, that the lines of stitches is could be arranged parallel to each other and still provide suitable passageways 41 for receiving and supporting the golf tees 3'!.

The main sheet at and the strip of material 38' are formed of heavy duck material or other suitable cloth materials with the portions thereof stitched in position. If desired, the main sheet 26 and the strip of material 3!; can be formed of rubber material with the portions thereof vulcanized in position or they can be made of a thermoplastic material with the portions thereof secured in position by heat sealing. Also, the frictional gripping of the golf tees 3! for the purpose of holding them in position within the passageways 4| can be improved by forming the strip of material 38 of an elastic material which will stretch when the tees are pushed into position from the topsf'of the passageways.

In the modification of the invention shown in Fig. 6, the score card 28 is a width substantially equal to the width of the main sheet 20 so that the upwardly bent bottom portion 26 of the main sheet 2t forms a single pocket 34 for containing the score card.

The holder for the pencil 32 in this form of the invention is comprised of a strip of material 25 which is elongated horizontally and secured along its top and bottom longitudinal edges to the front face of the main sheet 20 by lines of stitches iii. The strip of material 45 is located between the top edge of the score card 28' and the bottom ends of the golf tees 31 forming a horizontal passageway 41 for slidably receiving the pencil 32 from the one end thereof. The clip 36 of the pencil 32 is slipped into position on the strip of material 45 at the one end thereof to releasably retain the pencil in position.

In all other respects, the form of the invention shown in Fig. 6 is similar to that described in connection with Figs. 1 to 5 and like reference numerals are used to identify like parts.

The modification of the invention shown in Figs. 7 and 8 is characterized by a means for releasably securing the topedge portion 23 of the main sheet 20 in position'on the rear face of the main sheet to be adjustable to straps 2| of different widths. and to make it possible to mount the holder in position on the strap without having to open the same.

The releasable securing means comprises a horizontal row of spaced snap fasteners 50 mounted along the free edge of the top edge portions 23' of the main sheet 20. For each of the fasteners 50, there is a vertical spaced pair of complementary snap fasteners 5| mounted on -the main sheet 2B, see particularly Fig. 8. With this arrangement, it is merely necessary to pass the top edge portion 23 over the top edge of the strap 20 and to engage'the snap fasteners 50 with the desired. row of fasteners 51 depending upon the width of the strap 2|. It is appreciated, of course, that the main sheet 20 could be provided with only a single row of complementary fasteners 51 for engagement by the fasteners 50 of the top edge portion 23'.

In all other respects, the form of the invention shown in Figs. 7 and 8' is also similar to that described in connection with the Figs. 1 to 5 and like reference numerals are used to identify like parts.

In the modification of the invention shown in Figs. 9 and 10, the free top edge portion 23" of the main sheet 26 is folded outward and down ward over the top edge of the strap 2| and has the strip of material 38' forming the holder for the golf tees 37 mounted on the front face thereof. A separable slide fastener 63' is used for releasably joining the free edge of the top'edge portion 23" to the front face of the main sheet 20 just above the top edge of the score card 28. The slide fastener Gil'is controlled by a pull tab 61 and has one stringer 62 secured to the front face of the main sheet 20 by a, line of stitches 63. The other stringer 64 of the slide fastener 60 is secured to the free edge of the top edge portion 23" by a line of stitches 65. Thus, it is apparent that when the slide fastener 66 is completely open the holder can be put on and taken off without having to open the strap.

In all other respects, the form of the invention shown in Figs. 9 and 10 is similar to that described in connection with Figs. 1 to 5 and like reference numerals are used to identify like parts.

The modification of the invention shown in Figs. 11 to 14 is an exact duplicate of that shown in Figs. 1 to 5 except that the modified holder has its main sheet 26 formed of two superimposed layers of cloth material 10 and H. The layers H3 and H are shown in Fig. 13 in their super-imposed positions prior to folding and stitching to complete the formation of the holder. The layer 10 is the outer of the layers and the layer II is the inner of the layers. The layers 76 and 'H are to be folded along the dot and dash line 72 to provide the bottom portion 26 which combines with the main portions of the layers i6 and H to form the pockets 34 and 35. The top edge portion 23 is to be folded down along the dot and dash line 12 to combine with the main portions of the layers 10 and H to form the tunnel 25 for the waist engaging belt.

As best shown in Fig. 12, the vertical side edges of the layers are turned under and secured in position by the lines of stitches 27 to form the vertical side edges of the pockets 34 and 35. To reduce the bulkiness in the outer bottom corners of the pockets 34 and 35, the imier layer 1| is formed at the ends of the fold line 12 with vshaped cutouts M so that the inner layer 'H has no material in the outer bottom corners of the pockets 34 and 35.

In all other respects, the form of the invention shown in Figs. 11 to 14 is similar to that described in connection with Figs. 1 to 5 and like reference numerals are used to identify like parts.

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 constructions 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.
