golf ball
   
From the Dutch word "kolf", meaning club, but the game was invented in Scotland game going back at least to the 1400's. It's popularity was hampered by requiring close-cropped grass. The lawnmower was not invented until 1831, and not really practical until the machine-tool industry was able to cut steel gears c. 1880's. Golf wasn't played in America until 1888, when the St. Andrews Golf Club of Yonkers was formed.

What Are Those Golf Ball Dimples All About?
By Corey Meltifa
How many times have you... wondered why there are dimples all over the ball?

In this article I will explain to you why balls have dimples. How it controls the flight of the ball and why they are really important to your game.

Did you know that balls were originally smooth? That is right. Smooth as glass. Here is the funny thing though.
Golfers started to notice that the older

the ball with cuts and bruises traveled longer distances!

Apparently the nicks and cuts on the ball caused the ball to fly farther down the fairway compared to a brand new
ball. So like all golfers will do, they flocked toward the old balls like a moth on a heat lamp! I imagine at this point some aerodynamicist must have examined the beat up ball syndrome and realized that the cuts were acting as turbulators. These nicks and cuts were reducing drag which gave greater distance!

The dimples on a are the same exact thing as these nicks and cuts. The just are modernized! I think this is absolutely amazing. I love learning the history and
evolution of equipment. Maybe it is custom clubs http://www.golf-equipment-deals.com/What_Are_Custom_Golf_Clubs.html and how they evolved.

Concluding, I hope you enjoyed this brief article on ball dimples. So head to the course and don't worry if your ball bounces off a tree. It may help!
