1. The first golf balls were stuffed with feathers. The tighter packed the feathers, the further the ball would fly. This type of ball was used until 1848.
2. Golf was banned in Scotland from 1457 to 1502 to ensure citizens wouldn't waste time when preparing for the English invasion.
3. There are 336 dimples on a regulation golf ball. A dimpled golf ball can travel up to four times farther than smooth-surfaced golf balls.
4. When golf was first played professionally there were only 13 rules. Now there are 34.
The only problem with golf is that the slow people are always in front of you and the fast people are always behind you.
