It must not weigh more than 45,93g or be larger than 42,67mm in diameter. The characteristic punctiform “dents” called “dimples”, however, are not specified. These dents ensure that the air resistance of the golf ball is reduced by up to 50%. Every manufacturer has its own philosophy regarding the number of dimples and the probable trajectory of the ball. The outside of the golf ball consists of a shell made of hard plastic, inside it is filled with various components that make it elastic. In the past, this was exclusively hard rubber. Manufacturers now also use combinations of other materials that are applied in several layers.
