It doesn't. A tennis ball has a mass of about 57g A Golf ball has a mass of about 46g The golf ball is DENSER because it has material inside it (usually rubber) but the tennis ball is full of a gas (air).

A golf ball has more mass than a tennis ball because it contains more matter. Mass is difficult to measure directly. Usually balances or scales are used to measure the weight of an object, and the weight is used to calculate the object's mass.

A golf ball has more density; therefore, it has more weight.

### Which one would go faster with the same kinectic energy bowling ball or a golf ball?

Kinetic energy is a function of mass and velocity. Therefore, an object with more mass, such as a bowling ball, would have to go slower than an object with less mass, such as a golf ball. So, if given the same amount of kinetic energy, a bowling ball will go faster than a golf ball, because it has more mass.

Think of it this way if you have a golf ball and a wiffle ball they are the same size but they don't weight the same. The golf ball weighs more because it has a greater density In a more mathematical sense, density = mass / volume. If both minerals had the same mass, the more dense one must have a smaller volume.
