The first rubber ball 1898 revolutionized golf. The American discoverer Coburn Haskell was visiting a friend at the Goodrich Rubber Company in Ohio to wrap up a great idea, a hard core with thin rubber bands. Modern golf balls are generally based still on the same concept. Only the surface texture was refined again and again for each of the latest advances in aerodynamics. Most convincing argument of the traditionalists fought arg Innovation: The ball flew about twenty feet further than the hitherto used "Gutty".
This was made from the rubber of gutta-percha tree native to Malaysia. He had fifty years before being replaced with the same argument the "feathery". This first coined at least two hundred years, the golf game. These were stitched together by a piece of horse or cow, which was stuffed with wool, down or goose feathers. The production capacity was limited by a good ball-maker on only three pieces per day. Accordingly, the expensive "Herie feat." In contrast, multiplying the output of "Guttier" already to several dozen per day. Just a typical child of the mass production was the Haskell ball. In the development of golf tool, it was always in the rest of the ball, which affected the properties of the racket, and not vice versa.
The first Women's Club
The first Women's Club was - where else - recognized in 1867 in St. Andrews, Scotland. Thanks to their perseverance, there were the ladies of the society in 1850 managed to be admitted regularly to the square. After the St. Andrews women's golf spread quickly throughout the British Empire. In 1893 was held in a small square in Lancashire, the first "Women's Golf Championship." The women can also point to a prominent pioneer in the early history of golf. Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, was reportedly sighted in 1567 shortly after the death of her husband in a fun round of golf, which triggers some displeasure at court should have.
