Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

This invention design is for a golf club stand that will hold multiple clubs, towels and the flag stick. It also was designed to hold the club covers so at anytime during a round of golf you do not have to bend over to pick up clubs. Note that it fits in the bag with your putter without noticing it.

The design has multiple uses, to keep your grips from getting wet during a moist morning, on the driving range when you take just a few clubs to warm up, when you can not take the cart into the fairway and need more than one club, and mostly used today around the green for a sand shot and or for a quick up and down you can bring multiple clubs and a wet towel to the green and never bend over except to pick that birdie up out of the hole!

This invention is a bit different from most as it is easy to carry and no devices to open up a second or third leg to stabilize the stand, this device pokes into the ground and has a lip on the end of it to hold club covers and or wet towels to clean the balls and clubs. It is designed so when you grab your putter you grab The Club Stand at the same time you grab your putter.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The invention is a ¼ Inch rod bent with three 90 degree bends and one 15 degree bend with a pointed bottom that sticks in the ground. The device is made so as to where you can lean up to 8 golf clubs on the stand and a flag stick along with a wet towel. It is designed with no moving parts or extra extending legs and is one simple rod that goes into the ground without any problem and can hold several clubs to keep one from bending over to get their clubs, leaving their clubs, getting the grips wet on a moist damp morning and can be used at the driving range, in the fairway when carts are not allowed in the fairway during winter months, and around the green or in the sand, it is a tool that is used on almost every hole.
