Matt Adams and Kip Ingle take a look at an 1840’s feathery golf ball. These were handmade in Scotland, where the maker would only be able to craft 3-4 in one day. The maker of this feathery golf ball was Gresik. Gresik would mark each of his items by hammer stamping his marking across the golf ball. This was a painstaking process. To craft the ball, first the leather would be stitched together from the inside out and then pop it right side in. They then would boil feathers and put them in the leather pouch, the feathers would dry and the ball became hard. It was documented that these balls would go over 300 yards. These feathery golf balls didn’t have dimples because they were made of leather.
