    The Walter Hagen Honey Centered Golf Balls

    Throughout the era of the wound golf ball*, many different materials were used to form the center of the golf ball that the rubber cord would be wound. Some have used steel, oils, water, and one even had a radioactive center. The in 1934 the L.A. Young Golf Company in traduced the Walter Hagen “It’s a Honey” golf ball with a center of honey and a vulcanized Latex cover.

    *The wound golf ball was used from the turn of the 20th century until the solid golf ball, introduced in the late 1960's, took over.

    I have a pamphlet for this golf ball and as soon as I find “the place I put it so I would know where it was” I will post photos of it.

    I have added a scan of the original 1934 pamphlet for the L.A. Young Golf Company’s Walter Hagen honey centered golf balls.

    P.S. No do not have a radioactive center golf balls...
