If you are a student of the game, this was an easy one. If you are not, it’s a bit strange. Golf balls were originally made of wood. This dates back to the 14th century. And they remained in use until the 17th century. The biggest rival to the wooden golf ball was the feathery. That was a leather pouch filled with chicken or goose feathers. Wood held on because of the extensive labor and materials required to create the feathery.

Our photo today is of a little bit of swag that is kicking around the office. And, I think we can all agree, these modern marvels would travel exceptionally further than their wood, leather, and feather forefathers.

I don’t have a macro lens on hand today, but when I do I will revisit this photo and get some crazy closeups of the dimples.
