A golf ball is about half the size of a baseball or tennis ball. It was originally made of heavy leather, but today it is made by wrapping a rubber band around the core. Most golf balls are made of polybutadiene, which has a rubbery state, so it is very strong and durable and does not break at all, also to increase the flexibility of other chemicals such as zinc acrylate and benzoyl peroxide. Polybutadiene was added, which also increased its lifespan. The hollows of the golf ball cause the airflow to become turbulent and increase its speed and travel longer distances. Dunlop introduced the Maxley Golf Ball in 1922.
