  • Description

    Full title reads: "Wentworth. American and British Golf Ball Test. Cotten and Mitchell, playing 2 games alternately with each ball, prove 'there is not much in it between our 1.62' and the American Larger and Lighter'."

    Wentworth, Cambridgeshire.

    Golfer Henry Cotton drives away from the tee. Abe Mitchell follows him with a good shot. Good shot of cotton sinking a very long putt. Various shots of the golfers playing their round on the Wentworth Course.

    N.B. 1931 saw a debate in Golf about the merits of a new larger American golf ball - 1.68 inches - rather than the traditional 1.62 inch ball favoured by the British authorities.
