  • Publication number: 20090266854
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for selectively securing a golf bag to a golf cart to prevent the golf bag from pivoting or rotating while being transported by the cart. A coupling member which may be a strap, a rigid body, or a clamp that may selectively tightened, may be coupled to a golf bag structure. The coupling member may be used to selectively couple a golf bag and a cart together to prevent the golf bag from rotating on the back of the cart, thus improving the golfer's access to the bag's exterior pockets and other accessories. A toggle may also be used to further selectively secure a golf bag to a cart.

  • Publication number: 20090224016
    Abstract: The frame or device described herein was designed for use on a golf car or all terrain vehicle. The frame or device would be used by golfers or hunters in times of cold weather as a secure mounting device for a propane heater device and propane bottle. The invention as shown in FIGS. 1, 2 and 3 of the drawings indicate multiple parts of the frame or device. Although the main purpose of the frame is a secure location for the propane heater device and propane bottle, it also consists of a storage container, two cup holders and a golf ball receptacle. To the best of my knowledge, there is no other device that attaches to a windshield frame of a golf car of all terrain vehicle which is adjustable to all makes and models of these vehicles or offers a mounting device for a propane heater device and propane bottle. The only mounting position for a propane heater and bottle has been a cup holder provided by the manufacturer of the golf car or all terrain vehicle (assuming it was manufactured with a cup holder).

  • Publication number: 20090211930
    Abstract: The invention provides an improved way for transporting and storing golf clubs. The device secures the clubs on the outside of the bag with their shafts turned upwards and the club heads turned downwards, whereby the interior of the bag becomes available for other equipment and the center of gravity for the bag is low. The grips are separated with equal space between them making it easier to notice if a club is missing. Every club is secured and placed in a way where they do not come in contact with other clubs, preventing unwanted noise and wear. Different devices for woods, irons and putters ensure a fit for club heads of many different sizes and shapes. The racks for the wood clubs and the holder for a putter include adjustable, exchangeable and replaceable parts, making adjustments easy in order to fit different size club heads.
