The Real “General Ike” Golf Ball
It is well known that President Dwight D. Eisenhower was an avid golfer, so much so, that he had a practice green installed at the White House and he was a member of Augusta National. He received golf balls with many different monikers imprinted on them such as “Mr. President,” “D. D. Eisenhower,” and “Ike Eisenhower,” and according to the Eisenhower National Historic Site, his favorite was the Spalding Dot with “General Ike” inscribed on them.
