Golf Ball Protection
Re: Golf Ball Protection
I'm an avid golfer, and the spin of a ball off a driver is somewhere in the range of 3000 RPM just after impact, and a velocity of around 250 feet per sec for good golfers. It startes to slow immediately after that, obviously. A wedge creates much more spin, but far less velocity. I agree that it is the velocity and not the spin that determines damage at impact (E=mv squared).
