Golf’s next great material, graphene, can be made from eucalyptus bark



Graphene could be golf's next great material. It's a stronger carbon fiber, and it could change manufacturing drivers and shafts, among other products. However, until now, making graphene has been incredibly expensive and required using a cocktail of chemicals toxic to people and the environment.

Now, scientists have discovered a method of making graphene from eucalyptus bark and other naturally occurring fluids. Even better, the process cuts the cost from $100 to $0.50 per gram.
