Orange Golf Balls

I’m a huge fan of orange golf balls! I believe in them so strongly that I recently bought a whole case of 144 of them. I did this because it’s just getting harder and harder to find an orange golf ball at the store. To make sure that I don’t run out again, I just went ahead and bought me enough to last for at least a year. Seeing that I usually lose one o two a round (or less when I’m lucky), I should be good to go for the time being. In our… Continue reading…

“What is Inside of a Golf Ball?”

The outside of golf balls hasn’t really changed much at all in decades. What has changed dramatically in recent years is the interior of them. It turns out that what is on the inside of the ball is actually the most important part, as it can determine how far the ball travels as well as how much control the golfer has over it.

There are two basic types of modern balls. One is called a non-wound because it has a solid core. The other is a wounded one, and it has a rubber or liquid core with strips of rubber wounded around it. Wound balls use to be the standard because they were easier to control, even if they didn’t fly as far down the course. Today, with modern engineering, wound balls are practically obsolete. The new non-wound ones are designed to give you control and to go further than ever.

In the early days of golfing, balls were stuffed with fabrics or goose feathers. Some of these early models would even explode! Today’s non-wound balls are accurate, travel a long ways and are completely safe. They are also safe and not poisonous at all. There is an urban legend that golf balls are filled with a poisonous gas, but it’s just a legend.
