Have you ever wondered why a golf ball is covered in hundreds of tiny little indents? What is the point of having this funny texture, and why aren't other sports balls made the same way?
Believe it or not, those dimples do serve a purpose they affect how the air moves over the ball after it has been hit! While the dimples slow down the air moving over the ball, they speed up the air moving under the ball, which is what allows golf balls to travel so far and high. Since that is a big part of how the game of golf is played, you can see why a player would take every advantage he or she could!
