dc.description.abstractOne of the most fascinating aspects of golf is the distance to which the golf ball t ravels and the precision professional players can demonstrate while negotiating the world's toughest courses. The game of golf includes many physical systems all of which contribute to different aspects of the game. These systems include the swing, which has been modeled as a double pendulum, and impact, which is most theoretically feasible as an elastic collision. While much of the physical principles remain shrouded in mystery as to why the golf ball behaves the way it does, engineers remain\ steadfast in determining more and more ways to manipulate golf equipment to enhance players game.en_US
