The dimples on the golf balls
Did you know golf balls originally had a smooth look? So, when did it change from smooth to having these many dimples and why? The answer to this is related to the evolution of the ball over the years and how its design changes have given us these better performing golf balls.
If you were of the idea that a smooth golf ball would travel further than a dimpled one, you would be wrong, but we were too… until now. Actually, these dimples in golf balls are there to create a mixed airflow, or turbulence, which, if done properly, reduces drag.
