A Study of Surface Roughness and Impacts between Golf Balls and the Face of a Golf Club HeadPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This project focused on evaluating golf club head surfaces by measuring the spin rate of a golf ball after impact. A repeatable test was created using finished stainless steel surfaces to replicate golf club head surfaces and to measure the effectiveness of various surface roughness on golf ball spin. An effective surface was determined to be one that created relatively more spin rate on the golf ball. The goal of this project was to study different surface roughness and evaluate their performances as a golf club head surface.
