During the first decade of the twentieth century, golf ball manufacturers were springing up all over the country, and each company was experimenting with rubber core mesh balls. It was during this period that the modern day golf ball was born. Rubber core mesh balls created during the early 1900's were proving to offer players greater spin and feel. An America called Coburn Haskell created some of the first rubber core balls in the early 1900s with a bramble and mesh pattern. An Englishman called William Taylor patented the dimple method in 1905.
The "Victor" mesh ball pattern was then patented by Albert Penfold of the East India Rubber Company in 1912. This pattern became the favorite of many leading professionals into the 1920's. The most famous model was the Dunlop Maxfli, first made in 1919 after Penfold was lured to Dunlop. This golf ball is the most popular playing ball used by hickory golf players worldwide. Including players competing in the World Hickory Open Championship and the US Hickory Open Championship. It is antique white in color.
