Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to a head cover for protecting a golf club and a shaft, more particularly to a cover for golf club, of which the golf club can be inserted into or taken out through the opening part of the head cover.

Usually the golf club is kept in a bag that is divided into two or three equal parts by a partition, so the golf clubs are moving in a disordered way, which causes tangling among the golf clubs and makes inconvenient for inserting into or taking out and causes damage to the shaft and the grip of the golf clubs.

Therefore, in order to protect the golf clubs, usually a cover, which is produced with textiles that have a spandex quality, protects by covering the head.

However, this kind of cover is inconvenient to use, because it is covered form upside and after covering, it should be pulled out.

In addition, when the clubs are not placed vertically in the bottom, they are to be tangled with each other, because the grip's diameter is usually bigger than the shaft's,

2. Discussion of Related Art

Thus, the present invention is designed in order to solve the above-mentioned problem, the upper side is open, so that the club can be inserted into or taken out and connecting ribs are formed as one with plastic supporting ribs like umbrella ribs for obtaining the enough space. And after cover sheets are formed inside and outside of the supporting ribs, they are combined with the head cover, which is open upside and then a protecting pipe is combined with the connecting ribs.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

The following is the detailed description of the most desirable embodiment of the present invention.

As shown in FIG. 1, for the structure of the present invention, a few of supporting ribs (1) that are spread upward and connecting ribs (2) that are extended downward are combined with a protecting pipe (3) and the said supporting ribs (1) and connecting ribs (2) are covered by cover sheets (4)(4a) inside and outside, then the upper part is combined with a head cover (5), when it is covered as above.

At this point, if a sleeve (7), which has a wing (6) that becomes narrow, is formed on the connecting ribs (2) and the protection pipe (3), the shaft of the golf club is placed vertically and it makes easy the shaft to go in and out as well as it prevents from friction at the same time that it prevents from moving freely.

In addition, the above-described sleeve (7) can be placed on the bottom of the protection pipe (3) or various places.

Also, the said supporting ribs (1) is composed of about 6 to 8 ribs as umbrella ribs, so that it can be bent easily, which makes convenient the cover sheet (4) to be covered. Although various textiles can be applied for the cover sheets (4)(4a) that covers the supporting ribs (1) inside and outside, the textile (4a) that covers the inside part, namely, lining, is made of velvet or a carpet, so that the club is damaged to the minimum using a buffer such as a sponge.

Moreover, the above-mentioned supporting ribs (1) can be formed as a barrel when it is pliable and not a rib and this kind of barrel can be manufactured as one by a brow forming.

Furthermore, for the cover sheets (4)(4a) that cover inside and outside part of the supporting ribs (1), in cased of that the protection pipe (3) is combined with the in the outside, after the cover sheets (4a) that covers inside, is pulled to the outside of the connecting ribs (2) and fix it, an ornamental cover (8) is formed at the outside of the protection pipe (3) and fix it, then the ornamental cover (8) covers the cover sheets (4)(4a) neatly.

Also, the protection pipe (3) can be made transparent and colored or separate textiles can be used for this.

Besides, a round board (10), which is formed a lot of holes (9) that the protection pipe (3) are inserted into, is prepared and a protrusion (11) that a sill (12) is formed on the forward part of the holes (9) of the round board (10) vertically. After a spring (13) is placed on the sill (12) of the said protrusion (11), the protection pipe (3) is placed on the upper part of the spring (13), so that in case that the golf clubs, which are kept in the cover of the bag, are taken out of the bag, if the golf cover is lowered, then the golf club is exposed to the outside.

In addition, a cover (15), which is bent, is formed at the opening part of the head cover (5), so when it is not used for a while, the cover (15) can close the opening part (16) preventing from inserting some extraneous matters such as dust.

At this point, Velcro or zipper can fix the cover (15).

Furthermore, when the above cover (15) is not used, the upper part can be tighten, so that it prevents from inserting some extraneous matters such as dust.

An elasticity frame (17) is formed on the boundary of the opening part in the head cover (5), so that the golf club can be inserted into or taken out easily and it is not carelessly slipped out. And when it is used continuously, the club is located on the upper part of the elasticity frame, (17) and the said elasticity frame (17) is formed with two steps.

As comprised above, because the present invention is open upside of the head cover (5), the golf club can be inserted into or taken out easily. In some part of the protection pipe (3), the grip can be exactly moved to up and down by the sleeve (7) of which mouth is formed narrow and the shaft is not moved.
