Dimples are placed on a golfball by a large machine called a Ball Stamper, made by American Industrial Equipment Corporation, which was first founded on February 22nd of 1842 by James Marshall Windham III. The first one could only place 2 of the 336 dimples on a ball in one second. It took almost 2 minutes to place all 336 dimples on one ball! The latest models can put all 336 dimples on the ball instantly, on up to 6000 balls at a time. That's over 2 million dimples at once!
