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.

Why is it so hard to make a specific ball for the PGA? MLB has no issue with this.

Clearly the PGA don’t have any regulations if their allowing modifications to the golf ball, imagine if in the MLB they would allow hollowed out cork bats and lighter baseballs everybody would be a slugger.

4:35 did he say *a heavier ball would fall more quickly* ? If yes: acceleration towards earth is independent of mass🤔🤔🤔🤔
DNS 16 दिन पहले
@Hirvee5 But why? Mass has no effect on the acceleration
Hirvee5 16 दिन पहले
@DNS Because it would be less time in the air as total.
DNS 16 दिन पहले
@Hirvee5 "a heavier ball would spend less time falling in this case."

Why wouldn't you put dimples on racecars to reduce drag instead of smooth surfaces? Is it because the golf ball is spherical?

If a pro makes something hard look easy that means he has skill. I think it's disrespectful to change the game so that years of dedication and hard work is punished! I for one like watching pro athletes pull of feats that I could never do. Maybe I'm just crazy but I think that's how it should be .
