My research is an in-depth look at the trajectories of high-performance golf balls. These balls come from three of the top ball manufactures in the world: Titleist, Callaway and Bridgestone. We chose the low-spin ball from each company, and hit each 20-30 times using a 7- iron. We recorded the trajectory predictions using a range simulator called a FlightScope, which a ided b he U i e i f L chb g G lf g am. The purpose of this experiment was to create a computer model that compares the distance, time of flight and vertical descent of a golf ball that was predicted by the model and the simulator.
