Dunlop

Dunlop Dunlop takes its name from John Boyd Dunlop, Scottish vet and sometime inventor, who created the pneumatic tyre for his son's trike. This invention led to the establishment of the Dunlop Rubber Company with headquarters in Birmingham.

The company made its first golf balls in 1908, the Orange Spot, usually regarded as the first model but it was not until Albert Penfold joined the company in 1919 that it became a force in this area. The MaxFli ball, based on Penfold's 1912 lattice pattern patent, evolved into the MaxFli 65 to commemorate Henry Cotton's record breaking score of 65 in the Open Championship at Sandwich in 1934. That, in turn, became the Dunlop 65 and both names are still with us.
