    John F. Kennedy: Personally-Used Golf Ball. When President Kennedy wasn't worrying about Cuban missiles or the other woes of his office, he would sometimes drive golf balls on the South Lawn of the White House. JFK never ever used golf balls as gifts. He owned and used what few personalized golf balls that exist. This one is stamped "John F. Kennedy 1" on one side and "Mr. President 1" on the other. It was given to John P. Muffler, Sr., a second generation White House employee and an avid golfer, by President Kennedy while Johnnie was making his rounds winding clocks and the President was making his shots outside the Oval Office. It is accompanied by a Letter of Authenticity from Richard T. Muffler, John's son, and a third generation White House employee. We are selling an Eisenhower ball elsewhere in the sale.
