The parent company of Daisy, at the time of the Apollo 14 mission, was Victor Comptometer Corporation. Victor’s holdings included, at that time, Daisy, Heddon Lures, Burke Golf Equipment Corporation (PGA Golf), and Worthington Ball Company. Golf balls were produced with the Victor and Daisy logos and Jack Powers made the suggestion that the Apollo 14 crew play golf on the moon using Daisy golf balls.
Jack and his wife Virginia visited Al and Dee many times in Florida to watch launchings and several Apollo crews came to visit Daisy in Rogers, Arkansas. The Daisy Museum display includes autographed photos of the crews of Apollo 12, 14, 16 and 17.
Alan Bartlett "Al" Shepard, Jr. (November 18, 1923 – July 21, 1998), in 1961, became the second person and the first American to travel into space. It was ten years later, in 1971, that Shepard commanded the Apollo 14 mission, became the fifth and oldest person to walk on the Moon and the only person to play golf on a surface other than earth.
