The Physics of Golf

The Laws of Physics rule our natural world so it's no coincidence that physics plays a governing role in ruling the world of golf as well. From the differences on performance between a dimpled golf ball vs. a smooth golf ball, to the technology behind the manufacture of Golf Clubs, to the effect weather has on a golfer's physical performance and the flight of his/her preferred golf ball.

We give you some great details on how science and technology in the manufacture of the golf ball use an understanding of the laws of physics to design a ball that will maximize its flight performance and how it behaves once it hits the green on the Golf Balls Details Page, as well as a pretty good explanation on why it's so difficult to hit a golf ball with any greater consistency on the Training Aids Page.

So here we offer you The Graphic from Quicken Loans on the "Physics of Golf - Science on The Course". This graphic illustrates a few of the effects of Physics on the performance of both the golfer as well on the performance of his/her equipment.

Many jokingly argue that regardless of science & technology and the complexities of physics, the greatest two pieces of equipment in impacting a golfer's score on the card are the pencil and the foot wedge. We submit that in reality your greatest asset in securing lower scores is the six inches between your ears. If you can somehow command control over the negative thoughts that consistently interfere with your body's ability to execute a smooth swing and pure impact then you'll see your scores go down and your pleasure of the game go up.

So give yourself permission to hit the ball anywhere!!

Once you can do that, you free yourself to step up, swing easy and just fire away. Accepting that sometimes the ball just isn't going to go where you had hoped it would

. . . due to or in spite of . . .

The Physics of Golf

Some real "techies" love to get to the nitty gritty of anything that can improve their scores or even just their dialogue on the tee box, but knowing the Science & Technology of the R&D behind the manufacture of your golf equipment and understanding the role physics plays in the world of golf is all really just for fun and games for most of us.

Make sure you keep the educational details to understanding the science of golf in its proper perspective. After all - we're amateurs and really should be hitting the links for the simple pleasure of a day on the grass with good friends.
