About this deal

We threw around a few potential titles for this blog: "The 6 balls you wouldn't bother picking up in the woods", "Top golf balls you'd find in a hacker's bag", "Six balls your dad probably uses" . This patent was filed June 12, 1990 which establishes that the earliest date for introduction of this golf ball is July 1989.

A golf ball dimple can be thought of as two spherical segments–one rotated and placed under the other.Bob) Molitor, Golf Ball Inventor, 89, of Peoria, IL, and formerly of South Hadley, passed away on July 20, at home. One of my friends found a Top Flite Magna ball in the rough a few weeks ago and wondered why it wouldn't fit into the ball holder on his trolley. By 1995 there were no balls listed with either 336 or 332 dimples, 22 balls with 410 dimples, 96 balls with 422 dimples and 10 balls with 492 dimples. The number 1 guy on our golf team would pull out his graphite shafted driver (very rare at the time) and that triangular box on the first tee of school matches. They had 320 large dimples and 12 small dimples arranged in the Spalding icosahedron dimple pattern 4.

Unless noted in photos or in the description, I’m not sure of date of item…just know I’ve had it awhile (considering my age I think of all of my stuff as vintage…like me). This new Spalding dimple technology was important because Spalding and Acushnet Companies had spent considerable time in court from 1981 to 1990 hashing out patent issues 5.

The advertisement sheet that was enclosed with my golf ball gift was also very interesting to me because it showed that the three different golf balls shown, had three different flight trajectories. Peoria, IL 61614 or the Greater New England Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in Waltham, MA 02451. Some of the technologies we use are necessary for critical functions like security and site integrity, account authentication, security and privacy preferences, internal site usage and maintenance data, and to make the site work correctly for browsing and transactions. I think that the Spalding Molitor golf ball with Molitor on the pole was produced from 1975 to 1979 with the Acushnet Icosahedron dimple pattern, 332 dimples of one size. The total dimple volume (TDV) of all the dimples on a golf ball equals the number of dimples on the ball times twice the volume of one dimple (2V).

Molitor's golf ball and the late Gary Adams' Pittsburgh Persimmon metal woods eventually--and quite unwittingly--formed a technological alliance that simply and routinely turned 250 yard drives into 325 yard drives.This dimple pattern was designed so that the ball would have aerodynamic symmetry in flight regardless of its position on the tee or the ground. application but failed because it was very difficult to measure such a small distance for such a large number of dimples.
