Title:
Shots possible with this new golf head
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
This application involves the reform of the putting method. The main improvement is that the position of the ball has been changed to the left.

The address is positioned deep under the bottom of the ball.

Occasionally, the address is positioned at 30 cm away from the ball.

The player takes a back swing looking at only the cup and hits the ball straight.

As for the short and middle, the player takes a 1 to 2 cm back swing.

As for the long, the player freely takes about 40 cm back.

The sole of the head has changed into a two-sided one with a new sole.

The axis of the new hitting style is shifted to near the bottom right of the stomach or above the right knees.

The width of the blades of the putters and irons has been changed to 1 cm.

The grooves on the blade of the irons are extended to the surface of the head.

The flat surface below the lowest line of the grooves on the blade has been narrowed as much as possible to the limits of the Rules.

A full-face side-saddle is introduced.

To summarize, a golf club that is simplified, lightened and easily used has been made.

Claims:

What is claimed is:



1. A golf club blade characterized by converting the heads of the putters and irons into a 3 to 14 mm thick plate.

2. A golf club blade on which are new soles, cutting the usual sole and whose sole is converted into a two-sided one and has the equivalent effect.

3. The blade of irons, as shown in 5′ in FIG. 7, whose grooves extend to the toe and the whole surface.

4. The blade of irons, as shown 8 in FIG. 8, whose sole edge is straight and whose flat surface below the lowest line is made as narrow as possible to the limits of the rules.

5. The axis of a golf club whose length of the axis is between 457.2 mm and 810 mm.

Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0001] With the present putters, the player must concentrate on 2 points, the ball and cup, which we believe is a defective method.

[0002] The putter introduced here is an epoch-making one using a one-point-concentration method. This can be compared to a baseball pitcher pitching the ball at the strike zone, or what is referred to as “blind back” or “blind pitch”.

[0003] This is an entierly new golf club head using the concept of placing the ball on the left side.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0004] Putters today are manufactured to hit a ball that is placed perpendicular to the player's feet. It is impossible for the player to hit a ball that is 30 cm to his left. This is because the sole is long.

[0005] This new concept has made possible the hitting of the ball on the left by increasing the width of the blade by 1 cm. This also includes converting the iron club whose loft angle is more than 0 degree into one with a 1 cm plate blade. The player can thus use it as a newly-styled iron-putter.

[0006] This one-point-concentration hitting style is consistent with the laws of nature. This can be seen by the actual use which is better than explanations, where a player never becomes tense and the ball travels straight toward the pin and goes around it.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0025] First, the blade of the one-sided putter and a one-iron are converted into approximately a 1 cm plate, as in FIGS. 1, 2 and 1-1 show. FIG. 1 is cut at the A-A line. FIG. 2 shows that 2′ has been cut and the new sole is made in a diagonal line. The new sole is used by leaning the axis 4 or 5 degrees to the right at the address of the short or the middle. FIG. 4-3 shows the ball position of the short. 3′ shows the position of the address. At this address, the player swings the club so that the end of the sole gets under the bottom of the ball.

[0026] After that, the player looks at the cup and makes a “blind shot”, making a 1 to 2 cm “blind back” with the image of the pitch and run in mind.

[0027] If the player doesn't take the swing back, penalty is imposed.

[0028] As for the long, the player hits the ball with the usual sole. 4 is the ball position for the long. 4′ is the position of the address. As for the middle, the address is in the middle of both positions.

[0029] If the player takes only a 1 to 2 cm back swing for the long, his hitting power will be weak and the ball won't reach the cup. So the player should take a 40 to 50 cm back swing or freely take a longer back swing.

[0030] The side-saddle of FIG. 5 is the best way for a “blind shot”. The position of the ball and address is exactly the same as FIG. 4.

[0031] However, the sideway hitting style of FIG. 4 is easier used for the long.

[0032] 5 of FIG. 6 is the toe. 6 is the lowest line of the grooves. 7 is the flat surface below the lowest line. In the case of the “blind back”, the grooves are extended to the toe of 5 and is done as in FIG. 7.

[0033] 7 is the flat surface below the groove. In this case, the club face is decreased as much as possible to the limit of the rules and is converted into a straight line. This method has the club face and ball rubbing each other a bit more.

[0034] The axis of the usual putter is at the player's shoulders. The axis of the “blind shot” is near the bottom right of the stomach or above the right knee. This means that when the player hits the ball, the position of the right elbow is at the bottom right of the stomach or at above the right knee. As for the “blind back”, the shaft is shortened along with the simplification of the head.

[0035] Shortening the axis means complying with the rules and manufacturing the club with measurements between 457.2 mm and the length of clubs on the market.

[0036] In the case of the sandwedge, the bounce is removed and converted into a 4 mm plate blade. A new hitting surface is made on the sole of the head.

[0037] As for the bunker shot, the ball is placed perpendicular to the player's feet and the player hits the ball with the axis at his knees. With the ball deep in the sand, pushing the blade down, after taking a 1 to 2 cm back.

[0038] The difficulty of putting results in a two-point-concentration hitting style, or if you will . . . , a schizophrenic hitting style. The one-point-concentration hitting style would prove the usual hitting style to be mistaken.

[0039] Furthermore, with this method, the cut shot made for the short and middle, quickly moving the blade to the left, results in the ball spinning to the right.

[0040] The purpose for the new sole of the putters and irons, or the extension of the grooves on the blade of irons is to make possible a cut shot with this head.
