Golf balls have the tiny little craters in it so that it would not become a smooth object and roll past a TEE marker. If the ball was round with no craters on it and you were to swing with a nine iron or something of this capatable and you were aiming say for the 18th par and you most likely would never be able to get close enough to the goal for fear of rollover and or rollby moves. Craters thus enhance the movement of the ball to land and not move and reduce the movement away from desire target.

336 dimples on a regulation golf ball

A golf ball with more dimples goes the furthest because the more dimples the straighteir the accurcy and line up is.

They are called dimples, and there is about 300- 400 dimples on a golf ball.

It would be a golf ball. No, a baseball does not have dimples

The dimples on a golf ball are designed to make the ball aerodynamic and fly as smoothly through the air as it can. The reason there are so many dimples as it is as many as they can fit on the golf ball to give it the best flight.

They are called dimples, there is between 330 and 400 dimples on a golf ball, it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

The indentations on golf balls are called dimples. Most golf balls have more than 300 dimples. The number, shape, size and depth of the dimples affect.the flight of the ball. The number of dimples is generally printed on the box

The dimples make golf balls aerodynamic.

There is no meaning in the amount of dimples a golf ball has; this number is just determined by the size of each dimple and how they have been placed on the ball.

These are called dimples, they make the ball aerodynamic, without these dimples a ball could not fly.

User Avatar

An odd number of dimples would render the ball asymmetrical.

User Avatar

Could be, there is no set number of dimples, they usually vary between 300 and 450 dimples per ball.

User Avatar

Dimples don't affect the spin at all. Dimples allow the ball to fly, and become aerodynamic.

User Avatar

it makes aerodynamically easy

User Avatar

A golf ball has dimples which makes it aerodynamic, so it can fly and fly straight. There are no golf balls which have no dimples that are produced for full shots.

User Avatar

Depends on the golf ball manufacture and the number of dimples on the ball. Is there a specific ball you are looking at measuring

User Avatar

Dimples make the ball aerodynamic and allows it to fly with stability. Without dimples the flight of the ball would be very unpredictable.

A "divot" is the grass torn from the surface by the impact of a club, typically a lofting iron. The term for the marks on a golf ball is "dimples." (see the related question below)
