About the Golf Balls
Gutta Percha is the Malaysian phrase for tree sap originally derived from the Sapodilla tree. A member of the Sapotaceae family, sapodilla is native to Central and South America, specifically from the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico to Costa Rica. But now found throughout the tropical regions of the world including Malaysia, India and the West Indies.
First discovered being used for handles on daggers and knives in Malaysia. The Gutta Percha ball was the ball that opened golf to the masses, the first major development in the evolution of the golf ball. The resin was a great insulating material, later used in dentistry. When heated in hot water it was found to become very soft and easy to shape.
