The present application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Patent Application Ser. No. 61/920,694, filed Dec. 24, 2013, and U.S. Provisional Patent Application Ser. No. 61/991,405, filed May 9, 2014, both of which are incorporated herein by reference.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The game of golf as a worldwide recreation and profession has experienced a tremendous increase in interest and popularity over the last two decades. The golfing industry operates on a global scale, where it has been estimated that approximately 80 million golfers worldwide play on close to 40,000 courses across the planet. Revenues from sponsored golfing events and golf tourism packages are estimated to generate close to $3 billion per year and is growing.

With the increase in popularity and participation, the rate of sport related injuries associated with the game of golf is also on the rise. While the game of golf is generally regarded as a low impact, lesser-risk sport, studies have shown that reported golfing related injuries among both professionals (˜60%) and amateurs (˜40%) are on the rise. Among the injuries most commonly reported are those to the lower back and upper extremities, in particular, the shoulders and elbows. Golfers that carry their own bags have twice the reported incidence of lower back and shoulder injuries compared to those that do not carry their bags.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Provided herein, in certain embodiments, is an apparatus for connecting at least two straps of a strapped golf bag, such as a dual-strap gold bag (as shown as element 100 in the Figures) or other carrying bag in a manner to redistribute a load born by a user. For example, in one embodiment, straps are connected substantially horizontally between the area below the chest or pectoral region and above the navel of the user, more specifically at an area from about the shoulder region to the torso region.

The inventor has identified and solved the problem of the efficient distribution of weight of golf clubs and other carried objects when carried in an enclosure, such as a bag, on one's back. Traditional manufacturers have focused on shoulder straps, and more recently, on hip belts, and in doing so have failed to recognize and design for the load-shifting benefits that the inventive subject matter described herein provided, for example by joining shoulder straps together near the center of the torso. The inventor has determined and discovered that the strap(s)-system, method, and devices described herein provides a substantial benefit to the user of a golf bag (100) and related applications.

As can be appreciated, traditional shoulder straps and devices for carrying golf bags (100) can be cumbersome as the bag flops around as the user walks on or around a golf course leading to fatigue and discomfort. The present innovation provides for an apparatus designed such that the weight of the golf bag, or the like, with or without clubs is transferred or redistributed from the user's shoulders to the core region of the torso. Depicted in FIG. 1 is a non-limiting representation of the core region of the torso as described herein. With an ever increasing interest in the game of golf as a worldwide recreation and profession, the present innovation provides a benefit to all users: young/old, male/female, amateur/professional, of varying skill level and/or body types.

The present innovation enables the user to optionally attach a multi-component attachment assembly herein described as a “connector” or “linker” to a strap system of a golf bag and to adjust the “webbing”, “cord” or “tether” length on either side of the connector. For the purposes of non-limiting description of the present innovation, the terms “connector” and “linker” may be used interchangeably. Additionally, the terms “webbing”, “cord” or “tether” may be used interchangeably. Further, the terms “assembly” or “system” or may also be used interchangeably.” The multi-component attachment assembly (shown as in elements 106 or 121 in the Figures), in one non-limiting embodiment, is a dual assembly side-release buckle. For example, the user of the present innovation can thread cord, webbing or a tether through both ends of the buckle, which allows a wearer to make the straps as taught or as loose as preferred. In further or additional embodiments, the connector or linker is a dual assembly side-release buckle with nylon, or the like, webbing, cord or tether (as shown in elements 109 or 124 in the Figures) with loops (108 or 122) attached to either end. The connector or linker is a dual assembly side-release buckle with nylon, or the like, webbing, cord or tether (109 or 124) with loops (108 or 122), further comprising one or more loop locks (123), a clip (131), a harness (132), a D-ring (133), a cord keeper, hook loop, or the like, or any combination thereof attached to either end.

GLOSSARY OF CERTAIN ANATOMIC TERMINOLOGY

For the purposes of the present description, “core region” or “core muscles” is the region of the body bound by the abdomen, the pelvis, the lower back and the diaphragm and its ability to stabilize the body during movement. The main muscles of the core region comprise, but are not limited to, the transversus abdominis, the internal and external obliques, the quadratus lumborum, rectus abdominis, hip abductors/adductors, hip flexors, lumbar spine and the diaphragm. It should be well appreciated by those skilled in the art that the diaphragm is the main muscle of breathing in the human and breathing is important in providing the necessary core stability for moving and lifting. Actuation of the core muscles contracting together provides support to the spine and pelvis during movement.

It will be further appreciated that the core region is associated with the abdominal muscle groups and stability is associated with isometric or static strength. In addition, it is the lumbar spine that is primarily responsible for posture and stability providing the strength needed for stabilization especially utilized in dynamic sports.

As used herein, the “abdomen” (may also be called the belly, stomach, or tummy), is the part of the body between the thorax (chest) and pelvis. The region enclosed by the abdomen is termed the abdominal cavity.

The “epigastric” or “epigastric region” is the upper middle region of the abdomen, between the umbilical and hypochondriac regions.

The “hypochondriac” or “hypochondraic region” is the upper region of the abdomen, below the lower ribs, each side of the epigastrium. The hypochondrium is the upper part of the abdomen interior to the lowest ribs of the thorax.

The “hypogastric” or “hypogastric region” is the area of the human abdomen residing below the umbilicus. This region may also be referred to as the pubic region and/or suprapubic region is further identified as an area of the human abdomen located below the navel, provided that the pubis bone constitutes its lower limit.

The “transpyloric plane” is the plane located halfway between the suprasternal notch and the upper border of the symphysis pubis, which cuts through the pylorus, the tips of the ninth costal cartilages and the lower border of the first lumbar vertebra. An upper transverse line also known as Addison's Plane, located halfway between the jugular notch and the upper border of the pubic symphysis. The transpyloric plane may also be described as residing roughly a hand's breadth beneath the xiphoid process of the human sternum.

The “umbilical” or “umbilical region” is the area surrounding the umbilicus (navel). This region of the abdomen contains part of the stomach, the head of the pancreas, the duodenum, a section of the transverse colon and the lower aspects of the left and right kidney. The upper three regions, from left to right, are the left hypochondriac, epigastric, and right hypochondriac regions. The middle three regions, from left to right, are the left lumbar, umbilical, and right lumbar regions. The bottom three regions, from left to right, are the left inguinal (hiac), hypogastric, and right inguinal (hiac) regions.

The “sternum” or “breastbone or breastplate” is a long flat bony plate shaped like a capital “T” located anteriorly to the heart in the center of the thorax (chest). The sternum extends from the just below the clavicle region to just above the epigastric region. The sternum is connected to the rib bones via cartilage, forming the anterior section of the rib cage with them, and thus helps to protect the lungs, heart and major blood vessels from physical trauma. Although it is fused, the sternum can be sub-divided into three regions: the manubrium, the body, and the xiphoid process.

The “lumbar” or “lumbar region” is area of the abdominal segment of the torso, between the diaphragm and the sacrum (pelvis). The lumbar region is sometimes referred to as the lower spine, or as an area of the back in its proximity.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

An apparatus, method, device, and system for connecting one or more strap(s) of a bag, for example a dual-strap golf bag or other carrying bag, to the user of the bag, for example in a manner that is substantially horizontally in an area just below the chest region, for example the pectorals, and above the navel of the user, thereby transferring or redistributing load bearing weight from the shoulders to the torso.

Predominately, golf bags, whether “carry” or “stand” (used by those who walk the course and carry their bag for themselves or others) utilize only a single or dual-strap system, with one more limited exception of an added hip belt. This affords the result wherein a substantial amount of weight, and in certain cases virtually the entire weight of the clubs, is pulling downward on the shoulders of the user, as represented by (116) in FIG. 7b, which quickly causes fatigue for the user when walking anywhere from about 1 to 18 holes or more on or around a golf course.

In general, load-bearing packs more generally have long benefitted from dual shoulder straps and a hip belt working in concert to evenly distribute the load, and a sternum strap, stretching from one shoulder strap to another just below the collarbone, for providing stability only. While manufacturers have created what can be described as a “rectangular frame” around the perimeter of the torso (FIG. 1) thereby creating connections on the top and bottom, left and right of the torso manufacturers have failed to recognize and design for the load-shifting benefits that can be achieved by joining shoulder straps together near the center of the torso (including below the pectorals and also including above the navel), creating a subtle “X pattern or cross configuration” within the aforementioned “rectangular frame.”

Existing sternum strap systems, such as after-market add-ons, as opposed to those built-into backpacks, are an assembly comprising, for example, a buckle and split-bar slide. By their name and inherent function, sternum straps are designed to sit across the chest of the user (i.e. above the pectorals). Such systems have failed for users and are deficient for several reasons including inter alia: (1) they do not redistribute or properly balance weight; (2) the split-bar, which affixes to a strap, is not universal in size, e.g. it is fixed, therefore limiting; and (3) a requirement of use of a non-adjustable, non-dual assembly buckle, where the length of the strap is adjustable on one side only, and fixed on the other.

In practice, golf bag straps, as one example, are traditionally manufactured with webbing material anywhere from about 0.50 inches to about 1.25 inches in width. By contrast, the inventor has found that incorporation of a loop system is a preferred method to attach the buckle to a strap that is found to be universal. The inventor has also found that incorporation of a loop system further comprising an attachment member and a loop-lock is a more preferred method to attach the connector to a strap system that is found to be universal. Moreover, in order to keep the buckle of the connector in the center of the user's torso, the inventor has found that it is important that the connector be adjustable on both sides.

To appreciate the benefit afforded by the present innovation, reference is made to the aforementioned “rectangular frame” as depicted in FIGS. 1, 2a, 2b and 2c. In the middle region of this “frame” between the chest and the hips are the upper abdominal muscles, commonly referred to as part of the “core region” or the “core muscles”. These muscles are considered among the strongest parts of the torso. It should also be appreciated that the transpyloric plane runs directly through this region (FIG. 1). The inventor has recognized and describes herein that by tranforming the load-bearing design from the “rectangular frame” used in traditional load-bearing bags to a subtle “X” cross configuration as depicted in illustrative non-limiting representations in FIGS. 2a, 2b,2c (with particular emphasis on 2b) connected across the aforementioned “core region,” a more efficient system is realized and achieved. Moreover, the inventor has further recognized that the closer the user can place the weight or force exerted by the bag to his or her center of mass, the greater the benefit. Additionally, by creating more points of contact with the body, the benefit is further enhanced, as the stress or force exerted by the bag is more evenly distributed and weight is thereby shifted or redistributed toward this strong “core region”, effectively taking or shifting the load off the shoulders.

By way of non-limiting example, the benefits of the present innovation are demonstrated in FIGS. 7a-7b, 8a-8b, 11 and 12. As depicted in FIG. 7a, an illustrative non-limiting embodiment, of the connector (106) is attached to the straps assembly (110) of a representative golf bag (100) wherein the connector is in the open or unbuckled position. As configured, the user of the connector and wearer of the golf bag is carrying said bag in a “traditional configuration.” As worn, the user would fail to experience the benefit afforded by the attachment and use of the connector described herein. In use in the “traditional configuration,” the user would feel the weight of the loaded golf bag pulling downward on his or her shoulders and straining the lower back. As depicted in FIG. 7b, a side-view of the connector (106) attached to the shoulder straps assembly (110) of a representative golf bag (100) worn in the traditional configuration wherein the connector (106) is in the open or unbuckled position highlighting weight distribution pulling downward on the shoulders of the user as represented by the vector arrow (116).

By contrast, the user will experience the benefit afforded by wearing the connector in the closed or buckled position as demonstrated in FIGS. 8a-8b. In some embodiments, the connector (106) is attached to the straps assembly (110) of a representative golf bag (100) wherein the connector (106) is in the closed or buckled position. As worn in use, closure or buckling of the connector creates more points of contact between the upper body, straps and bag. By creating additional points of contact, the benefit is further enhanced, as the stress or force exerted by the bag is more evenly distributed across the torso. As depicted in FIG. 8b, in some embodiments, when worn by the user in the closed position, the weight of the golf bag with or without clubs is thereby shifted or redistributed toward the strong core region, effectively taking or shifting the load off the shoulders. This is further exemplified by vector arrows (119a) and (119b).

In a further embodiment, the affixed multi-component attachment assembly (126) is worn by the user in the closed position. In some embodiments, the multi-component attachment assembly (126) in use is worn across the central core region, as depicted in FIG. 11. As will be appreciated, when worn in use, the multi-component attachment assembly (126) comprising attachment member (120) fits securely on or is a part of the strap system (110). It will be further appreciated that the attachment member (120) may be attached to strap (112) or strap (113) of strap assembly (110), depending upon the bag's strap assembly configuration. It will be further appreciated that loop (122) is engaged or connected to (120) and the strap system (110) forming a snug fit. The snug fit is further enhanced by engaging the loop-lock (123). The loop-lock (123) is manually adjusted to slide and fit snugly against (120). The locking mechanism or device of (123) provides sufficient force or strength to provide a secure hold on the cord (130) of loop (122). It will also be appreciated that the snug fit will be further enhanced with the addition of a clip, a harness, a D-ring, a cord keeper, a hook loop, or the like, or any combination thereof to the loop. In some embodiments, the multi-component attachment assembly (126) in use is worn across the upper core region, as depicted in FIG. 12. In yet a further embodiment, the multi-component attachment assembly (126) in use is worn across the lower core region. As such, the user experiences a similar or improved benefit as described herein. It will be further appreciated, while in use, the position of the multi-component attachment assembly will vary across this region accordingly depending on the size, shape and level of comfort for the user.

Hub

An additional feature of the subject matter described herein is a hub for a golf bag load support assembly system comprising a symmetrical portion having at least four arms extending therefrom for attachment to ends of respective golf bag straps; or a symmetrical portion having at least three arms extending therefrom for attachment to ends of respective golf bag straps; or a symmetrical portion having at least two arms extending therefrom for attachment to ends of respective golf bag straps; and a connector situated at the end of each said arm, providing pivotal connection between said arm and the respective end of said golf bag strap. The connector is selected from, but not limited to, the group consisting of a D-ring, a latch, a harness, a carabiner, a ladderloc, a buckle, a clamp, a O-ring, a clip, and a slide.

In some embodiments, the pivotal connection of the hub to said golf bag straps permits rotation of the hub on the back of a golfer when carrying the golf bag, providing continually adjusting balance optimization during use.

In some embodiments, hub includes a padded portion which includes a raised portion. In further embodiments, the raised portion acts as a center of rotation for movement of said hub.

The Connector

Another feature of the subject matter described herein is a connector depicted as illustrative non-limiting embodiments seen in FIGS. 4a, 4b, 5a and 5b which solve the problem manufacturers have failed to recognize and provide a solution. The present innovation enables the user to be able attach a multi-component attachment assembly (106 or 121) herein described as a connector to a strap system (110) of a golf bag (100) or golf bag directly and to adjust the webbing (109 or 124) or cord length on either side of the connector. This is best described as a dual assembly side-release buckle. The user of the present innovation can thread a cord or webbing (109 or 124) through both ends of the buckle (107 or 125), which allows a wearer to make the straps as taught or as loose as preferred. The connector (106 or 121) is a dual assembly side-release buckle with nylon webbing or cord (109 or 124) with loops (108 or 122) attached to either end. While side-release buckles are known in the industry with patents held by the plastics manufacturers, for example, those made by ITW Nexus, most of the buckles are manufactured for hiking backpacks. The inventor has recognized this void in the industry and surprisingly found that the dual assembly side-release buckle with this configuration as described herein does not exist anywhere! Moreover, the inventor has surprisingly found the benefit afforded by the configuration described herein in its incorporation to the golf bag design and use.

Provided in some embodiments, a multi-component attachment system comprises a base module having an attachment module mating section and a cord connection section, wherein a cord connection section includes a top piece and a bottom piece. The top and bottom pieces are configured to engage a cord to the base module when the top piece is interlocked to the bottom piece. In some embodiments, a multi-component attachment system comprises an attachment module including a linking device and an attachment device, wherein the linking device has a base module mating section and an attachment device mating section.

Example 1

Average Adult Male Golfer

An adult male carried his bag walking 18 holes for pleasure but was regularly plagued by the discomfort of carrying a golf bag over an often 7,000+ yard round. Both the weight of 25 lbs bag pulling down and back on his shoulders, and the instability of the bag as it swayed up and down and back and forth against his hips as he walked, caused pain in his shoulders and lower back, and took a toll on his game as he experienced increasing physical and mental fatigue over the course of a round.

Before the round began, the adult male affixed the connector to the golf bag's shoulder straps, by unbuckling the device and attaching one side of the connector to the ladderloc (or similar attachment) on the left shoulder strap, and the other side of the connector to the ladderloc (or similar attachment) on the right shoulder strap.

The adult male then slipped the bag across the shoulders and adjusted the height of the straps to find the perfect fit. The average adult male contracted the straps so that there was tension across the core region of the body when the connector was buckled.

To buckle the connector, the adult male wrapped his hands around each side of the strap at the position where connector adjoined, lifted the bag up slightly by pulling the shoulder straps down to position it above his buttocks then pulled the straps together to buckle across his upper abdomen or core region. The adult male felt the weight of the 25 lbs bag shift off of the shoulders and onto the core muscles, which were now engaged. The posture of the adult male transformed from a backwards-leaning, unstable, and arched posture to a forward-leaning, athletic posture. The bag felt refreshingly tight and stable resting against the hips and the small of the back.

The adult male had properly fitted the connector. The adult male unbuckled the device and put the bag down on the tee box to hit the first shot. After hitting a golf ball, the adult male slipped the bag back over the shoulders. As the adult male took the first few steps down the fairway, in a natural motion, he again buckled the connector across his upper abdomen or core region and immediately felt the benefits. The bag now fit securely and comfortably against the body as he walked confidently toward the ball. The average adult male golfer repeated this process many times throughout the course of the round, feeling immediate benefits from the use of the connector every time he picked up the bag to walk to the next shot.

Example 2

Average Adult Female Golfer

An adult female enjoyed carrying her bag and walking 18 holes for pleasure was regularly plagued by the discomfort of carrying a golf bag over an often 6,000+ yard round. Both the weight of the about 23 lbs bag pulling down and back on her shoulders, and the instability of the bag as it swayed up and down and back and forth against her hips as she walked, caused pain in her shoulders and lower back, and took a toll on her game as she experienced increasing physical and mental fatigue over the course of a round.

Before the round began, the adult female affixed the connector to the golf bag's shoulder straps, by unbuckling the device and attaching one side of the connector to the ladderloc (or similar attachment) on the left shoulder strap, and the other side of the connector to the ladderloc (or similar attachment) on the right shoulder strap.

The adult female then slipped the bag across the shoulders and adjusted the height of the straps to find the perfect fit. The average adult female contracted the straps so that there was tension across the core region of the body when the connector was buckled.

To buckle the connector, the adult female wrapped her hands around each side of the strap at the position where connector adjoined, lifted the bag up slightly by pulling the shoulder straps down to position it above her buttocks then pulled the straps together to buckle across her upper abdomen or core region. The adult female felt the weight of the about 23 lbs bag shift off of the shoulders and onto the core muscles, which were now engaged. The posture of the adult female transformed from a backwards-leaning, unstable, and arched posture to a forward-leaning, athletic posture. The bag felt refreshingly tight and stable resting against the hips and the small of the back.

The adult female had properly fitted the connector. The adult female unbuckled the device and put the bag down on the tee box to hit the first shot. After hitting a golf ball, the adult female slipped the bag back over the shoulders. As the adult female took the first few steps down the fairway, in a natural motion, she again buckled the connector across her upper abdomen or core region and immediately felt the benefits. The bag now fit securely and comfortably against the body as she walked confidently toward the ball. The average adult female golfer repeated this process many times throughout the course of the round, feeling immediate benefits from the use of the connector every time she picked up the bag to walk to the next shot.

Example 3

Average Adolescent Golfer

An adolescent golfer enjoyed carrying her bag and walking 18 holes for pleasure without being plagued by the discomfort of carrying a golf bag over a 6,000+ yard course. Both the weight of 10-20 lbs bag pulling down and back on her shoulders, and the instability of the bag as it swayed up and down and back and forth against her hips as she walked, caused pain in her shoulders and lower back, and took a toll on her game as she experienced increasing physical and mental fatigue over the course of a round.

Before the round began, the adolescent golfer affixed the connector to the golf bag's shoulder straps, by unbuckling the device and attaching one side of the connector to the ladderloc (or similar attachment) on the left shoulder strap, and the other side of the connector to the ladderloc (or similar attachment) on the right shoulder strap.

The adolescent golfer then slipped the bag across the shoulders and adjusted the height of the straps to find the perfect fit. The average adolescent golfer contracted the straps so that there was tension across the core region of the body when the connector was buckled.

To buckle the connector, the adolescent golfer wrapped her hands around each side of the strap at the position where connector adjoined, lifted the bag up slightly by pulling the shoulder straps down to position it above her buttocks then pulled the straps together to buckle across her upper abdomen or core region. The adolescent golfer felt the weight of the about 15 lbs bag shift off of the shoulders and onto the core muscles, which were now engaged. The posture of the adolescent golfer transformed from a backwards-leaning, unstable, and arched posture to a forward-leaning, athletic posture. The bag felt refreshingly tight and stable resting against the hips and the small of the back.

The adolescent golfer had properly fitted the connector. The adolescent golfer unbuckled the device and put the bag down on the tee box to hit the first shot. After hitting a golf ball, the she slipped the bag back over the shoulders. As the adolescent golfer took the first few steps down the fairway, in a natural motion, she again buckled the connector across her upper abdomen or core region and immediately felt the benefits. The bag now fit securely and comfortably against the body as she walked confidently toward the ball. The average adolescent golfer repeated this process many times throughout the course of the round, feeling immediate benefits from the use of the connector every time she picked up the bag to walk to the next shot.

Example 4

Average Adult Caddy

An adult caddy carrying a tour golf bag equipped with a dual shoulder strap system and walking 18 holes with a tour professional was plagued by the discomfort of carrying a tour golf bag weighing upwards of about 35 lbs over an 7,000+ yard round course over 5 consecutive days of play. Both the weight of 35 lbs bag pulling down and back on his shoulders, and the instability of the bag as it swayed up and down and back and forth against his hips as he walked, caused pain in the shoulders and lower back.

Before the round began, the caddy affixed the connector to the golf bag's shoulder straps, by unbuckling the device and attaching one side of the connector to the ladderloc on the left shoulder strap, and the other side of the connector to the ladderloc on the right shoulder strap.

The caddy then slipped the bag across the shoulders and adjusted the height of the straps to find the perfect fit. The caddy contracted the straps so that there was tension across the core region of the body when the connector was buckled.

To buckle the connector, the caddy wrapped his hands around each side of the strap at the position where connector adjoined, lifted the tour bag up slightly by pulling the shoulder straps down to position it above his buttocks then pulled the straps together to buckle across his upper abdomen or core region. The caddy felt the weight of the 35 lbs bag shift off of the shoulders and onto the core muscles, which were now engaged. The posture of the caddy was transformed from a hunched-over leaning, unstable posture to a more erect forward-leaning, athletic posture. The tour bag felt refreshingly tight and stable with the weight of the tour bag more evenly distributed across the body, especially at the core region.

The caddy had properly fitted the connector. The caddy unbuckled the device and put the bag down on the tee box. After the tour professional hit a golf ball, the caddy slipped the tour bag back over the shoulders. As the caddy took the first few steps down the fairway, in a natural motion, he again buckled the connector across his upper abdomen or core region and immediately felt the benefits. The tour bag now fit securely and comfortably against the body as he walked confidently toward the ball. The average caddy repeated this process many times throughout the course of the round and week, feeling immediate benefits from the use of the connector every time he picked up the bag to walk to the next shot.
