The “Goodman”

The "Goodman" ball is a playable replica of the “inverted bramble” or dimple ball patented by William Taylor in 1908. The inverted round dimples had a longer, higher ball flight and stayed cleaner than the bramble. Spalding used this pattern for many of its golf ball lines starting in 1914 including the Spalding Dot.

The Goodman is a 55 compression ball that is approved for all classic (1900 - 1935 era) hickory golf events.
