Description:

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a bi-parting golf bag for picking and placing several golf clubs, and more particularly to a bi-parting golf bag that has bi-parting movable brackets to facilitate the steps for picking and placing the golf clubs.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

To play golf in different golf courses, the golf players always carry several different types of golf clubs. These golf clubs are usually placed in golf bags and carried on the backs for easy carriage.

The existing golf bags, which are available in the markets, have holding structures for holding the golf clubs. The golf bags, which are carried either on the backs of the users or on the carts, are shaken or rocked unavoidably. As a result, the club heads and golf surfaces of the golf clubs, which are placed together in the golf bags, are damaged easily by collision therebetween. In addition, the golf clubs are arranged disorderly so it is not easy for the user to pick, place, or position them. Furthermore, the golf clubs are inserted into the golf bags along the direction from top to bottom so it is inconvenient to position the golf clubs in the optimum positions and pick out the golf clubs.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

A major object of the present invention is to provide a bi-parting golf bag for picking and placing several golf clubs. The bi-parting movable brackets can be unfolded to expose the golf clubs completely so the golf clubs can be picked and placed easily. Moreover, several fixing means are formed on the upper openings of the insertion trenches for fixing the golf clubs so as to prevent the club heads and golf surfaces of the golf clubs, which are placed together in the golf bag, from being damaged easily by collision therebetween.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

Referring to FIG. 1 through FIG. 3, a bi-parting golf bag for picking and placing golf clubs of the present invention comprises a positioning body 1 and two bi-parting movable brackets 2, wherein several zippers 4 are formed on the outer surfaces of the positioning body 1 and these two bi-parting movable brackets 2 so as to form several reception trenches.

Referring again to FIG. 1, FIG. 4, and FIG. 5, the bi-parting movable brackets 2 are coupled with the positioning body 1 via several hinges 12 so that the bi-parting movable brackets 2 are unfoldable. In addition, the positioning body 1 has a bottom support 11 on the bottom for supporting the weights of the bi-parting movable brackets 2. Several insertion trenches 3 are longitudinally formed on the insides of the positioning body 1 and the bi-parting movable brackets 2 for holding several golf clubs 10. For the purpose of fixing the golf clubs 10, several fixing means 31 are mounted on the upper openings of the insertion trenches 3 for fixing the golf clubs 10 so as to prevent the club heads and golf surfaces of the golf clubs, which are placed together in the golf bag, from being damaged easily by collision therebetween.

Furthermore, the bi-parting movable brackets 2 can be unfolded by about 90 to 180 degrees so the golf clubs can be picked, placed, or positioned therein conveniently.

Referring to FIG. 4 through FIG. 6, a support structure of the golf bag is shown, wherein a support frame 5 is mounted on the backside of the positioning body 1. The support frame 5 has a pair of rods 51 for being embedded into the positioning body 1. A connection shaft 52 is pivotally connected to the upper ends of the rods 51, wherein this connection shaft 52 is connected to a control means 53 and controlled by the control means 53. After shifting the control means 53, the connection shaft 52 can be driven by the control means 53 to pivotally unfold the rods 51 for obliquely supporting the golf bag on the ground. After supporting the positioning body 1 by the support frame 5, the bi-parting movable brackets 2 are unfoldable to completely expose the golf clubs 10 positioned inside the insertion trenches 3. It is very convenient to pick and place the golf clubs since the bi-parting movable brackets 2 can be unfolded to expose the golf clubs 10 completely.

As shown in FIG. 7, if the bi-parting golf bag of the present invention is applied to a golf cart 20, two fixing frames 13, which are mounted on the backside of the positioning body 1, can be utilized to hook the golf cart 20 so as to allow the golf bag to be fixed stably during carriage.

In addition, as shown in FIG. 8, the insertion trenches 3 are formed on the positioning body 1, and several club-holding trenches 14 may be also formed on other available spaces of the positioning body 1 for holding the golf clubs 10.

In addition, as shown in FIG. 9, several article-holding partitions 22 for holding articles and tools and several ball holders 21 for holding golf balls are formed on the available spaces of the lateral insides of the bi-parting movable brackets 2 so that the articles and the tools can be properly, regularly held therein.
