have you ever wondered how so much energy can be generated so that when you hit a golf ball with your clubface, the ball is sent soaring through the air with tremendous amount of speed, velocity, and left? In order to produce this energy there are two factors involved:

1) The manufacturing/construction of the ball.
2) The velocity of the clubhead.

The average golf ball is made up and constructed according to rules set forth by the United States Golf Association (USGA). These rules state that a golf ball must be in the shape of a sphere, 1.68" in diameter at the smallest, and a maximum weight of 1.62 ounces.

The golf ball is then tested by specific equipment put out by the USGA. With these proper tests, the ball is not allowed to generate velocity of over 250 feet per second. This equates to approximately 170 mph, and a temperature of 75 degrees (F).

Ever Heard Of "Iron Byron"?

The United States Golf Association also has a very detailed robotic hitting machine which golf balls are tested with, known as the Iron Byron. When this machine is used for such testing, each ball must not travel greater than the distance of 280 yards, with a tolerance percentage of no more than 6%.

The purpose of these guidelines is to prevent professional golfers from using golf balls that may travel farther than other balls. In other words, it is a great checks-and-balances system to ensure that nobody is cheating with a ball that may have been purposely manufactured to fly at greater distances.

What Is A Golf Ball Made Of?

A well thought out design goes into the making of every golf ball you play with. Each ball is either a two-piece or three-piece design. And not every golf ball is made of the same material. Less expensive golf balls are typically made from a synthetic rubber substance known as surlyn.

Then there are golf balls made out of synthetic balata, which are often used by more experienced players who desire a ball that has a softer and generates more spin. This type of ball gives the player better control with steering their shots. Most beginner and amateur golfers stick to the two-piece balls, as they have less spin, thus minimizing poor shots.
