Best Golf Irons Reviews 2018-Comprehensive Guide

The small white ball, which is provided with so-called dimples, is available as a two-piece, three-piece and four-piece variant.

The size and nature of a golf ball are defined in the official golf rules exactly. The diameter of a golf ball must therefore be at least 42.67 mm, the maximum weight at 45.93 g. The surface of the ball is provided with numerous small dents, the so-called dimples. The exact number of dimples is not fixed. Here almost every manufacturer has a different arrangement of dimples and a different number. The arrangement and number of dimples serve to optimize the flight characteristics and have contributed in recent years to the fact that more and more lengths could be achieved.

The structure of a golf ball is as follows: on the outside a hard plastic shell and inside the different cores from manufacturer to manufacturer. In addition to hard rubber cores, multi-layer cores made of various flexible materials are also increasingly being used. Depending on the number of different layers one speaks of one-piece, two-piece, four-piece (and so on) balls.

For better allocation in a flight, a number is printed on most golf balls. For further distinction, it has become customary the flight partners to tee one the ball mark and the printed number, or to name the individual identification (blue cross, initials, etc.).
