Did you ever wonder what it would be like to hit a golf ball that has no dimples on it.
The dimpled golf ball was invented in 1907, by a guy named William Taylor. He applied for and got a patent for it and that change must have been great for the game back then.
Now with the dimples you were able to put spin an the ball and stop it on the greens.
I never hit a ball without dimples but I would think it would be very hard to control, not that I can control one with Dimples.
A. J. Spalding bought the US rights in 1908 and started producing the dimpled balls.
