  • Patent number: 5511779
    Abstract: An adjustable golf putter includes an elongated shaft having an upper end with a handle and a lower end with a spherical tip portion. A putter head has an external surface and a socket that includes an enlarged open end portion for receiving the enlarged tip of the shaft, the socket also having a restricted opening through which the shaft passes, but which will not allow passage of the spherical head. Pins on the spherical tip cooperate with vertical slots along the socket to restrict adjustability to two plane. A plurality of set screw openings extend between the socket and the external surface of the putter head. A plurality of set screws extend respectively through the plurality of set screw openings each having a pointed tip that engages the enlarged spherical end of the shaft. The enlarged spherical end of the shaft can be of softer metal material than the material for the set screws.
