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.
Dimples make the ball aerodynamic and allows it to fly with stability. Without dimples the flight of the ball would be very unpredictable.
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
These are called dimples, they make the ball aerodynamic, without these dimples a ball could not fly.
Possibly. Many golf clubs and driving ranges use "limited flight" balls. This requires less space for the actual range itself. The "range ball" is designed in such a way (with shallower dimples) that prevents it from flying as far as a "standard" flight golf ball. Range balls also typically have a harder cover, making the ball more durable (but less forgiving and further decreasing its flight). Ask the pro at the club or an employee at the range, and they should be able to tell you what kind of ball is used (limited or regular flight).
The difference between Titleist golf balls and other branded golf balls is simply the amount of dimples the ball has, the Titleist design helps the ball travel through rough and windy weather.
Golf balls range in the amount of dimples they have and the patterns and sizes of the dimples on the balls, for example the Titleist ProV1 has 392 dimples whereas their DT Carry model has only 252.
The indentations on golf balls are called dimples. These dimples act as turbulators, which increase the speed, and therefore the distance, which the ball travels, by reducing drag. People began to notice this when they began to realise that poorer people, who had nicks and bumps in their golf balls simply because they couldn't afford new ones, were better at golf than the rich people with brand new smooth balls, prompting aerodynamicists to try and find out why. Now all golf balls have these indentations, or 'dimples'.
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.
A golf ball has dimples which makes it aerodynamic, so it can fly and fly straight. There are no golf balls which have no dimples that are produced for full shots.
You cannot buy a smooth golf ball, it would not have a consistent flight. If you have plenty of time on your hands you could sand the dimples off a golf ball and see how unpredictable it is. Answer: That was the original golf ball, I don't think if it's still existing. Golf balls have dimples because it has a purpose and not jus a design. If you would know why, then I bet you will like the new one.
Dimples are placed on a golfball by a large machine called a Ball Stamper, made by American Industrial Equipment Corporation, which was first founded on February 22nd of 1842 by James Marshall Windham III. The first one could only place 2 of the 336 dimples on a ball in one second. It took almost 2 minutes to place all 336 dimples on one ball! The latest models can put all 336 dimples on the ball instantly, on up to 6000 balls at a time. That's over 2 million dimples at once!
