Synopsis : Every golfer who has ever teed up a golf ball on the first tee of any golf course at any time will enjoy owning this book. Guaranteed! It is a book tracing the evolution of the golf ball back to the feather ball and theories on what came before. You’ll learn about the gutta percha period, the rubber core balls, how and by who mmaterials were discovered, quirky offerings such as the Radio ball, the different cover materials of the modern ball and the latest innovations for the 21st century. To help establish the time of these events, we’ve included anecdotes about the people who invented the balls and the competitors who used them, plus a timeline of golf ball milestones, along with the rules of golf—those that concern the golf ball directly.
Along with the text there are approximately 165 photographs—most quite large—of some very rare golf balls, images of early ball packaging, plus early golf tees, etc., from the wonderful collection of David Berkowitz, the private collections of Dr. Gary Wiren and Udo Machat, the designer and publisher of this book.
The text was written by Larry Dennis, a national award winning writer and editor with a long and noteworthy career in golf and sports journalism. For more than 13 years he was a Senior Editor for Golf Digest. Then, for almost six years he was the Editor-in-Chief of Senior Golfer. Dennis has written 18 books on golf, including “Golf’s Magnificent Challenge” with legendary architect Robert Trent Jones, winner of the USGA’s International Book of the Year Award in 1989, and “How to Become a Complete Golfer” with Bob Toski and Jim Flick, the third-best-selling golf instruction book in history. His book with Byron Nelson was a first-year selection in the Classics of Golf series.
We think that the golf ball has been overlooked far too long as the subject of a book. We know that this will shed some light on this worthwhile topic.
