Golf's distance debate, explained.
Become a Video Lab member! bit.ly/video-lab
These days, pro golfers are hitting the ball far. Really far. And it's creating a problem: because modern golfers can reach the hole with fewer shots than before, older courses -- like Augusta National Golf Club, Oakmont Country Club, and others -- are becoming obsolete. Now, professional organizations, like the United States Golf Association, are struggling to find a solution for big powerful golfers like Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, and Tiger Woods. While the jump in distance is due to lots of factors, conversation is centering on the controversial possibility of redesigning the golf ball to reduce distance. It'd be the latest turn in the ball's long history: Golf balls have evolved from "featheries," to gutties, to balata balls, and eventually dimpled modern balls. But the biggest, and most recent change? The almost-instantaneous switch from wound balls to solid core multilayer balls like the Titleist Pro V1.

a heavier ball wouldn’t do anything, mass is negligible in a projectile such as a golf ball

NIKE MADE HOT GOLF BALLS FOR TIGER BETWEEN 2000 AND 2006. THEY WERENT ALLOWED TO BE GIVEN TO THE OTHER PLAYERS EVEN THOUGH RORY AND SOME OTHER NIKE PLAYERS COMPLAINED IN HOUSE ABOUT THIS. NIKE PAID RANGE GUYS TO PICK UP THE BALLS AND COUNT THEM DURING PRACTICE SESSIONS SO NO ONE COULD FIND OUT AND TIGER WAS INSTRUCTED NOT TO SIGN ANY GOLF BALLS OR HAND THEM AS GIFTS.. PROVEN FACT....... LOOK IT UP... THEY SHOULD TEST THE GOLFERS DRIVERS ALSO TO MAKE SURE NO ONE SLIPPED IN HOT ILLEGAL FACE ON THEM.. EYE TEST DOESNT COUNT.

Vox hey there. I have a silly request but I need some empirical research on this. Some of the funniest fail videos are models doing this wobble thing. A sorta combined heel and ankle glitch while trying not to fall down the runway. Why is this such a common fall? Is it - something to do with the material runways are made of? -something to do with how models are trained to walk? -something to do with the heels? -something to do with discord in design of shoe and foot inclination? -are these shoes being made to order backstage by just hot-glueing whatever you got backstage? I’m sure I wear my heels to the ground, and I’ve never duck wobbled while desperately attempting not to fall. Why is this fall so common amongst models? Is there something more here or do I just like watching fail videos? And also it would be pretty funny to see a splice of all these falling videos.

The only down side is: GOLFERS WASTE MORE LAND. Cool. Instead of having more housing and public land, tax sheltered country clubs just buy more. Cool. (btw, old country clubs don't have to pay certain taxes cause rich people lobbied. Google it.)

The winning score at Oakmont in 2016 was -4 (really -5 or -6). Clearly, players aren’t “overpowering” courses. Courses are getting longer and greens are getting quicker to cope with these amazing balls. Nothing about Oakmont has become obsolete whatsoever, with other courses having winning scores in the 20 under par range.

Fun fact: pistachios are wind pollinated. Their pollen grains have tiny dimples on them just like golf balls do so they can make the distance to the next flower.

I still think the game is difficult even without these obstacles because you have to master your swing and club distances. You can also drive the ball 200+ yards but then suck at putting and not win.

Neat video, but it ended really abruptly. The whole video describes the problem and doesn't really explore solutions, other than "make the course longer". Some courses are extending tee blocks out, while others are just reducing par on some of the holes. It's a little sickening playing a 300 yard par 3. The technology is improving but I'm finding that you don't need to spend top dollar to get some really high performing equipment. I would be really upset if most of the really advanced stuff was behind a pay wall that was outside the budget of the average golfer. Clubs are getting a lot more expensive these days, though, so hopefully things don't trend that way.

Early ProV1's were made with a visible seam between the dimples on the edges of the two outer layer halves. From memory if you lined up this seam down the hole on the tee then you'd get just a little more distance and a slightly higher ball flight, and if you lined it up across the face of the club you'd invoke more spin. Titleist have since changed the design of the ProV1 to no longer have such an obvious seam.

A heavier ball, with the same velocity, would not "fall out of the air more quickly" but actually stay in the air longer. Galileo is disappointed.
