United States Patent Des. 237,983

Patented Dec. 9, 1975 GOLF BALL Francis de S. Lynch, Mattapoisett, and John W. Jepson and Robert A. Brown, Marion, Mass., assignors to Acushnet Company, New Bedford, Mass.

Filed Mar. 1, 1973, Ser. No. 337,078

Term of patent 14 years Int. Cl. D21--02 U.S. Cl. D34-5 QQ FIG. 1 is a top plan view of a golf ball showing our new design;

FIG. 2 is a front elevational view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a bottom plan view thereof; and

FIG. 4 is a right side elevational view thereof.

The dominant feature of the design resides in appearance of the golf ball caused by the arrangement of the dimples, especially the lack of dimples at the poles as shown in FIG. 2 and the distinctive stripe around the equator of the ball due to the double row of side-by-side dimples as shown in FIGS. 1. 3 and 4.
