Dr. Robert Adams discovered the Gutta Percha "Gutty" golf ball which was created using the dried sap of the Sapodialla tree and which had a rubber-like feel to be formed into ball shapes by heating and shaping while hot. It was by accident that improperly smoothed gutty balls had a truer flight than the smooth counterpart. Then came the rubber ball which changed the face of golf to the way we know it. The rubber ball was invented in 1898 and had a solid rubber core with high tension rubber thread wrapped around it to be covered with a Gutta Percha cover.
