The golf ball is manufactured by St. Mungo Manufacturing Co. of America, Newark, New Jersey and Glasgow, Scotland. St. Mungo was one of the first licensees of the Haskell patent rubber core ball in the UK. Prior to the 1920's as there were no regulations in place, the golf ball was made in varying combinations of sizes and weight. With this large variety of balls a player was able to choose a ball depending on the wind conditions, temperature and the course choice of the day. St. Mungo offered a complete line of Colonel golf balls for this purpose. Some of the large lightweight balls would actually float on water giving them the nickname 'floaters'. In 1935 St. Mungo were making 32 different models of ball.
