Yes!! As does their shape and the patterning. To find our more about this and other technical questions... you might want to go to franklygolf.com Where Frank Thomas, for Technical Director for the USGA answers lots of technical questions about equipment, balls, etc.
Well, the most common shape of dimple is the circular one. This is on nearly every Golf ball and is on them for a reason, because it is the most efficient. Callway HX golf balls have hexagonal dimples, these give the ball a 100% dimple coverage and they believe it allows the ball to fly better, and be more stable in the air.
A golf ball with more dimples goes the furthest because the more dimples the straighteir the accurcy and line up is.
Dimples don't affect the spin at all. Dimples allow the ball to fly, and become aerodynamic.
Not really. Dimples are designed to give the ball stability during flight. The club and the core of the ball determine distance.
Yes because according to recent studies each dimple equals aprox. 1 meter in distance
No, it is a sphere with dimples on it (dimples give the ball a more consistent flight apparently). The number of dimples varies between balls, but its usually in the region of 200-500.
The indentations on golf balls are called dimples. Most golf balls have more than 300 dimples. The number, shape, size and depth of the dimples affect.the flight of the ball. The number of dimples is generally printed on the box
Dimples make the ball aerodynamic and allows it to fly with stability. Without dimples the flight of the ball would be very unpredictable.
An odd number of dimples would render the ball asymmetrical.
Anywhere form 300-450 depending on your brand of ball.
Dimples. A brand name, ball type and number.
332 hexagonal dimples
There is no meaning in the amount of dimples a golf ball has; this number is just determined by the size of each dimple and how they have been placed on the ball.
It depends on the manufacturer. Each company has their own dimple pattern.
There are 430 dots on a Nike golf ball. It took me 10 minutes to find out by marking each dot with a pen. Then writing down how many each time I made a line.
Personally I think it is you hit the ball, the more the dimples the straighter it is supposed to go, something to do with dynamics, but there is trade off somewhere, may effect distance.
