ITEM #: 44014 Golf Ball Ornament by Old World Christmas
From Old World Christmas. Golf, as we know it, was first
played with a leather-covered ball
stuffed with goose feathers. In the
early 1900's the golf ball evolved
into the form as we know it today.
However, it was not until 1932
that the golf ball was standardized
to weigh a maximum of 1.62
ounces and possesses a diameter
of not less than 1.68 inches. The size of a golf ball is often used to denote just how small something is, like a hummingbird's nest! This glass golf ball ornament, with its amazing dimpled texture and pearl white color, is the absolute perfect gift for the golfer in the family.
