On the Tee: The Story of the Missed Putt

In our latest installment of On The Tee, we’re sharing a conversation we had with Dick Young, the son of Acushnet Company founder, Phil Young. As Dick recalls for us, had it not been for his father’s frustrating run-in with an irregular golf ball, the story of the #1 ball in golf might never have been written.
