A Study of Impact between Golf Ball and Face of Golf Club HeadPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The objective of this project is to advance the understanding of the interaction between golf ball and the face of a golf club head during impact. An impact experiment was set up by dropping golf ball on testing surfaces connected to dynamometer. High speed camera was used to find the spin rate of golf ball. Although spin rate of golf ball could not be found due to camera’s low frame rate, this report found that friction coefficient between golf ball and testing surface mainly affected by the angle of testing surface and grooves on surface do not affect friction coefficient.
