1 Claim. (Cl. ISO-1.5)

This invention relates to accessories in sporting goods, and in particular, a carrier for golf balls having a clip on one side for supporting the carrier on the upper edge of a golf bag and a bracket extended from the opposite side with an opening for retaining a package of cigarettes, a clip for holding a score card or match book anda coil for retaining golf tees, pencils, and the like.

The purpose of this invention is to provide a combination carrier for golf in which balls, cigarettes, score cards, matches, tees and pencils may be carried instead of being carried in pockets whereby the necessity of playing golf with pockets of clothing of a golfer being bulged outwardly by balls, cigarette packages, and the like 'is obviated.

Various types of devices for holding golf balls have been attached to golf bags, belts of golfers and also to garments of golfers, however, as such devices are only designed to carry balls, cigarettes, or other similar articles, it is necessary to use several different types of carriers and a conventional golf bag is not adapted to hold more than one of such devices. With this thought in mind, this invention contemplates a combination carrier that is adapted to be positioned in an area of substantially the same size as that of articles carried therein whereby substantially all articles required in playing golf may be carried at one point on a golf bag.

The object of this invention is, therefore, to provide a golf ball carrier that is adapted to be supported by a clip over the edge of a golf bag and that is also adapted to hold other articles, such as cigarettes, matches, tees, a score card and a pencil.

Another object of the invention is to provide a golf ball carrier adapted to be held by a clip on the upper edge of a golf bag in which golf balls therein are adapted to be removed without disturbing other articles supported on the carrier.

A further object of the invention is to provide an improved golf ball carrier adapted to be suspended by a clip on the upper edge of a golf bag and also adapted to hold other articles required in playing golf in which the carrier is of a simple and economical construction.

With these and other objects and advantages in view, the invention embodies a ring having spaced U-shaped golf ball retaining elements depending therefrom with a clip on one side and with a bracket on the opposite side in which the bracket is formed to hold a package of cigarettes, a score card, a pencil, and golf tees and the like.

Other features and advantages of the invention will appear from the following description, taken in connection with the drawing, wherein:

Figure 1 is a plan view of the improved golf ball carrier.

Figure 2 is a side elevational view of the carrier.

Figure 3 is an elevational view looking toward the outer or extended side of the carrier.

Figure 4 is a view illustrating the method of forming a bracket of the carrier from a single strand of wire or other suitable material.

Referring now to the drawin wherein like reference characters denote corresponding parts, the improved golf ball carrier of this invention includes a ring. 10 having spaced U-shaped golf ball carrying loops 11, 12 and 13 depending therefrom, an outer loop 14 extended from one side and providing a clip for supporting the carrier anda bracket extended from the opposite side and having an area 15 for a package of cigarettes or the like formed FhQIQilL oppositely wrapped coils 16v and 17- extended from the upper part and spaced inner vertically disposed sections 18 and 19 and coacting outer vertically disposed sections 28 and 21 positioned: between the coils and golf ball carrying el ments, providing, elements for frictionally supporting a score pad, and a matchbook, or the like.

The loop 11 is provided with arms 22 and 23, the up: per ends of which are secured, such as by weldingto the ring 10, the loop 12is provided with similar arms 24 and 25 also connected, such as by welding to the ring. 10 and the loop 13v with similar arms 26 and 27 also connected such as by welding to the ringv 10. The loop, 14 providingthe clip is formed with arms 28 and 2 9 and the upper ends of the arms are connected to the ring 10 with short horizontally disposed sections. 30 and 31, respectively, heends of whish wn ecte o th in y. we di or the like.

The bracket at the opposite side of the ring, is formed of horizontally disposed sections 32 and 33, also connected to the ring 10 by welding or the like and the sections 32 and 33 extend from the upper ends of vertically disposed portions 34 and 35 from the lower ends of which horizontally disposed sections 36 and 37, respectively, extend and from the ends of the sections 36 and 37 outwardly extended horizontal portions 38 and 39, respectively, extend. The extended ends of the portions 38 and 39 are connected to the upper ends of the vertically disposed sections 20 and 21 and the lower ends of the sections 20 and 21 are connected to inwardly extended sections 4t) and 41 which are directly below the portions 38 and 39. The ends of the sections 40 and 41 are connected to inwardly extended sections 42 and 43. The inner ends of the sections 42 and 43 extend downwardly to form vertically disposed portions 44 and 45 and horizontally disposed sections 46 and 47, respectively, extend from the lower ends of the portions 44 and 45.

The posts or vertically disposed sections 18 and 19 extend upwardly from the outer ends of the sections 46 and 47 and sections 48 and 49 which extend from the upper ends of the posts are formed to provide parallel end bars 50 and 51 that connect to the ends of the coils 16 and 17, respectively.

The wire of the coils 16 and 17 is wrapped from a center loop 52 with the convolutions oppositely formed and the end sections 50 and 51 extend from the end coils or convolutions.

With the parts formed in this manner, the loop 14, providing the supporting clip may be placed over the upper edge of a golf bag and golf balls dropped through the ring 10 will be frictionally held by the loops 11, 12 and 13 whereby the balls may be withdrawn from either the top or bottom of the carrier. Golf tees and a pencil may be held in the coils, a package of cigarettes in the area 15 and a score card or match books frictionally gripped by the vertical sections 20 and 21 on one side and 18 and 19 on the other.

By this means substantially all articles required in playing golf may be carried in a single holder positioned at one point on the side of a golf bag.

It will be understood that modifications, within the scope of the appended claim, may be made in the design 3 and arrangement of the parts without departing from the spirit of the invention.

What is claimed is:

A carrier for supporting articles on a golf bag comprising a ring, a first pair of horizontally disposed parallel sections secured at one of their ends to said ring, a first pair of vertically disposed sections secured at one of their ends to the opposite ends of said first pair of horizontally disposed sections in depending right angular relation thereto, a second pair of horizontally disposed parallel sections secured to the opposite ends of said vertically disposed sections at right angles thereto, a third pair of horizontally disposed parallel sections secured to the opposite ends of said second pair of horizontally disposed parallel sections in outwardly extending right angular relation thereto, a second pair of vertically disposed sections secured to the opposite ends of said third pair of horizontally disposed sections in right angular depending relation thereto, a fourth pair of horizontally disposed sections secured to the opposite ends of said second pair of vertically disposed sections in inwardly extending right angular relation thereto, a fifth pair of horizontally disposed sections secured to the opposite ends of said fourth pair of horizontally disposed sections in inwardly extending right angular relation thereto, a third pair of vertically disposed sections extending in depending right angular relation to said fifth pair of horizontally disposed sections, a sixth pair of horizontally disposed sections secured to the opposite ends of said third pair of vertically disposed sections and extending outwardly thereof in right angular relation thereto, a fourth pair of vertically disposed sections secured to the opposite ends of said sixth pair of horizontally disposed sections in upwardly extending right angular relation thereto, a seventh pair of horizontally disposed sections secured to the opposite ends of said fourth pair of vertically disposed sections and extending outwardly thereof in right angular relation thereto, an eighth pair of horizontally disposed sections secured to the opposite ends of said seventh pair of horizontally disposed sections and extending forwardly thereof in right angular relation thereto, a pair of oppositely wrapped coils secured to the eighth pair of horizontally disposed horizontal sections and extending therebetween and means for supporting the ring on a golf bag secured thereto.
