The biggest golf tournament of the year is happening this week, The Masters. No, you don’t have to check your calendar The Masters normally always happens in April but because of the pandemic this year they had to push to November for the first time ever. So today’s question is golf related.
Why do golf balls have dimples in them?
The little indents in the ball are actually to help the ball go further. Way back in the early days of the game golfers realized that the balls that had nicks and bumps in them would travel further than the standard smooth round balls they used to play with. So every since then the golf ball has been designed with dimples on purpose to help distance.
Next time you’re watching or playing golf now you know why.
