Related Research Golf is one of the few sports that is not well practiced  here in the Philippines but is one of the few sports that is  played   by   the   blue   blood.   We   all   know   many   golfing  superstars  like Tiger Woods, but what everyone is curious  about is how he is able to have such strong strikes  and hit the ball hole in one.  In this question physics enters its way to explain it. One of the factors that affect the  extraordinary strikes of Tiger Woods is his golf swings. He was able to hit the ball further  than any average player because he allows himself to hit the ball with constant mass with a  large amount of force and the more force is applied the larger the acceleration is, thus the  further the ball will reach. Newton’s second law is stated as F = ma. In this case, if a  golfer will to choose from

Unformatted text preview: wood or driver to hit the ball definitely he will choose the driver to be able to hit the ball further because ti will give a larger force and since the driver has larger head than any other clubs it will provide an additional force to outdrive the ball. As stated earlier, the golf swing must be also harder to be able to create largewr acceleration thus a larger force and greater range will be reached. Since the mass is held constant thus, adjusting swings will be easier in an almost negligible wind speed. So, the secret of being a pro is just harder swing and choosing the right golf club.
