Description

Hand Hammered Guttie
 
The Gutta Percha ball was the ball that opened golf to the masses.  The first major development in the evolution of the golf ball. Made from the resin of the Sapodilla tree.  This tree is indigenous to Malaysia.  The resin was originally imported for use in dentistry.  The Gutta Percha revolutionised the game of golf, the resin when heated in hot water was found to become very soft and easy to shape. 
 
later balls also had patterns which could affect the flight of the ball.  The modern ball has a dimple pattern which is a follow on from the Gutta Percha period.  The Hand Hammered version was an early indication of the use of aerodynamics in golf.  Early players having scarred a smooth version noticed that the markings affected the flight of the ball.  This ball is a close resemblance to an authentic Gutta Percha ball.   This ball is fully playable.
