Recently the U.S.G.A. put out some information and a video regarding some clarification for rules changes for 2016. If you are interested in looking at this information, you can click on the link below:
This seems like it would be a lot of fun. I would love to hear your feed back on this. I could setup a tournament that we could run for a few weeks. There is a lot of different ways we could do this. If this gets enough interest we could setup a board of people to figure out how we want to run this. If you have a smart phone and aren't the tech type, we can get it setup for you and show you how it works. I have attached a youtube video to explain what I'm talking about.
The Effect of Golf Ball Temperature on Golf Ball Performance
The temperature of the golf ball and the air temperature on the day you're playing directly affect how your ball will perform during a round. Generally, temperature affects a ball's resiliency, the spin and the density of the air through which the ball travels. Each contributes to how a ball performs. Knowing this can help your scores.
Ball TemperatureGenerally, a warmer golf ball travels farther. The rubber materials used to make golf balls respond better if they are more resilient. Warmth enhances resiliency. A warmer ball will come off the clubface with more velocity and spin than a colder ball, encouraging loft. The ball's temperature also has an effect on bounce. Heat gives the ball more elasticity, creating a ball that bounces more and travels longer.
Air TemperatureColder days mean the air density is greater. If the air is "thick," the ball requires more velocity to produce a longer shot. Conversely, if the air temperature is warm, there is less density, and the ball has the chance to perform better and travel farther. It's not unlike the human body. Muscles are more flexible and responsive when the temperature is warm than when it's cold. We are able to move more efficiently. The same goes for a golf ball.
