Why Are There Dimples on a Golf Ball?
The next question you might ask is, ‘WHY are there dimples on a golf ball?’. The answer is both simple and complicated. The simple answer is that without dimples, a smooth golf ball would be more challenging to launch off the ground and fly with an irregular, impossible-to-control ball flight.
