Ever Wonder Where Golf Ball Dimples Came From?

“Golf balls made during the 1800s were made with a smooth surface so it would fly farther.  At some point, golfers noticed that older balls covered with nicks and grooves seemed to fly farther.  By the 1930s, the standard golf ball was covered with dimples.  Just as golf balls are designed with “dimples,” so is shark skin.
To swim faster, a shark bristles with its denticles, causing tiny whirlpools to form within the cavities between the denticles. These tiny vortices reduce the drag.  This same design can be observed with dimples on a golf ball.

 

Golf balls are made with dimples to create less drag in the same way the shark skin with its “dimples” was designed. 

 

God is truly the great designer of the world around us!”
