Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0001] 1. FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0002] The present invention is a gripping device applied to golf, especially an improved device helping a user grip a golf club naturally, and avoid bad postures or accidents of a tight handhold, or a club slip such that quality of golf is promoted naturally, and scores and level of sport can be arisen.

[0003] 2. DESCRIPTION OF THE PRIOR ART

[0004] Sport groves, no matter made of genuine or synthetic leather, belong to general groves and none of them is designed and improved certainly for golf. For the principal reason of preventing the beginner from an accident of a club slip as well as protecting hands from callusing because of friction, the present groves applied to golf are mainly designed for matching up with the grip cloth of the gripping part of the golf club. A club slip includes a straight part and a transverse part. The former means a slip along the direction the same as the direction of the club head, and latter means a slip along the direction normal to the direction of the club head, especially means a slip of the club face angle.

[0005] For the sake of being afraid of that the club will come off hands, the golfers who don't understand golf deep usually grip the club tightly. On the contrary, when they swing their clubs, the phenomenon of missing the golf ball resulted from a transverse slip of the club face angle is happened such that fun of golf is decreased substantially.

[0006] In addition, when facing abrupt condition of rain, even though for an old hand, the club is easy to come off palms and score in rain is not as good as usual.

[0007] The inventor of the present invention ruminated over the disadvantages resulted from the habitually used golf groves and gripping devices of clubs, and earnestly deliberated the way of improvement and innovation. After studying hard for a long period, the inventor eventually succeeded in inventing the improved structure of a golf grove and a gripping device of a golf club.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0008] The first purpose of the present invention is to provide an improved structure of a golf grove and a gripping device of a golf club, which can help beginners grip a club correctly and avoid an improper tight handhold to make the club face angle of the club have much improvement such that much fun is get form golf.

[0009] The second purpose of the present invention is to provide an improved structure of a golf groves and a grip device of a golf club, which can provide a correct method of gripping a golf club to make inside flesh part of center of palm closely nestled against grip cloth such that the design is conformed to ergonomics and able to avoid injure of fingers and joints.

[0010] Another purpose of the present invention is to provide an improved structure of the golf grove and a grip device of a golf club, which can be used in all-weather, and even in the rain, the user still can grip the club stably in wet condition.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

[0027] Referring to FIG. 1, the habitually used golf club 1 thereof has the grip cloth 11 used for adding stability of gripping. There is a club head 12 at the bottom stroking point on the club 1, and a club face with a certain angle which is used to stroke a golf ball is at the external of the club head 12. Therefore, as shown in the figure, a transverse slip results in a deviation of stroking angle or even missing the golf ball.

[0028] Referring to FIG. 2, the habitually used golf glove 2 therein has a gripping, area that contains the area of flesh part from the root of the first finger to the root of the little finger. Moreover, with matching up with FIG. 3, when gripping the club 1, the gripping area 21 makes the user be able to let his grove closely nestle against the club cloth 11 to grip the club 1 stably. Referring to FIG. 4 and FIG. 5, the feature of the present invention is that a binding and buckling device, which comprises a grappling part 31 and a felt blanket 32. The grappling part is sewed on the gripping area 21 of the club 2 and many unciform substances are spread on its surface. The felt blanket 32 is on the grip cloth 11 and the surface is covered with silk.

[0029] Referring to FIG. 6, the binding and buckling device comprising a grappling part 31 and a felt blanket 32 can make the grove 2 quickly and stably fix on and come off the club 1 such that the palm of the user grips the club naturally to strive for higher scores and promote more fun.

[0030] With comparing with other commonly seen technologies, the improved structure of a golf grove and a grip device of a golf club provided from the present invention has advantages as below:

[0031] 1. The present invention removes the misgiving of the beginners that when swinging, the user doesn't have to grip the club tightly to precisely control the swinging angle and help to promote the popularity of the golf.

[0032] 2. The binding and buckling device of the present invention is set properly to make flesh part of center of the palm of the user closely nestle against the grip cloth to let golfers adjust the position of gripping. Besides, because the method of gripping is conformed to ergonomics, the accidents of injury of hands can be avoided.

[0033] 3. The present invention, which takes advantage of the method of the binding and buckling device, can be used in all-weather and doesn't be influenced by wet and sliding condition resulted from rain such that the user still can use the club easily without the accident of a slip of a club.

[0034] Many changes and modifications in the above described embodiment of the invention can, of course, be carried out without departing from the scope thereof. Accordingly, to promote the progress in science and the useful arts, the invention is disclosed and is intended to be limited only by the scope of the appended claims.
