GOLF BALLS OLD VS NEW WITHOUT THE TV CHAT

  1. The problem with the discussion is that which the video touched on at the end, club design has changed and newer clubs, at least in marketing (not necessarily in reality), as supposed to more forgiving and make it easier to hit straight. The only way to properly test which ball curves more would be to use a robot with the same club to hit the ball and impact exactly the same tilt to the ball.

    As higher lofted clubs show the more back spin you impart on the ball the more it counter acts the effect of any tilt axis (or side spin) on the ball. I assume that there is some mathematical realationship so that, for example, an extra 1000 revs might make little difference to side spin but an extra 2000 revs does. Again this can only be proved with robot testing.

    My gut feel is that the evolvement in the design of clubs overrides completely any change in the ball but that if you were to put both balls on robot testing, the new ball will curve more because it goes further and therefore has more time to curve but if you were simple to test for the angle of deviation I have no idea which ball would curve more.

    In any event for most amateur golfers even if the new ball curves less it really does not help us because it still ends up in the rough!

  2. My understanding was backspin is a stabilising force. Therefore the more backspin the less erratic ball flight. Hence when you have super low driver spin you get these curving ball flights that drop out the air.

  3. Is it easier to generate axis spin with the older ball? So if my in to out swing of 4 with face closed 2 to path with the new ball hypothetically generates 400 spin axis (made up number), would the same face to path on the old ball generate more spin axis, maybe a 600 then or no? Thought process being a center strike generates more back spin with old ball, so why wouldn’t it also generate more spin axis? Make sense… Probably not.

    1. Spin axis tilt won’t really go above say 30 degrees. That is like wild curve.

      Not sure what you are saying sorry.

  4. Put some “auto-fades” on the audio track Brah…get rid off the pops and clicks when the scene changes!
