Title: Golf club and umbrella holding device

Abstract: A golf club holder suspends golf clubs beneath an umbrella to keep the grips dry during rain. The holder comprises a head with clip devices for attachment to an umbrella shank and for attaching the shafts of clubs upside down to the holder. The clip devices comprise in one embodiment a molded plastic head with receptacles for attachment to the umbrella shank and for receiving the club shafts, the receptacles each comprising a bore lined with high friction rubber and a slot for receiving the shank or shafts laterally into the receptacle. A stem extends from the head to provide enhanced gripping action to the umbrella shank. The devices may be hinged to the stem to permit the holder to remain with the umbrella shank so that the umbrella may be collapsed with the holder attached. The holder stem may be permanently attached to the umbrella shank with the shaft clip devices hinged to the stem.
