Skeptical Investigation

The Self-Correcting Golf Ball

We’re lovers. You know that. But every now and again, something comes across our desks that just seems... suspicious. Because of the tremendous material upside to all our lives if these claims pan out, we at times put ourselves in harm’s way to investigate. Albeit skeptically.  

We call it:
Skeptical Investigation. (Copyright pending.)

THE CLAIM
Brave pioneers in the cutting-edge field of dimple science claim that these Self-Correcting Golf Balls will straighten your slices and hooks by up to 75%.

THE INVESTIGATION
Now, before we begin, you should know that these balls are against USGA regulations. So unless you get a custom-made set that say “Titleist” on them (which you would never, ever do), you’ll only be using these for recreation.

That said, we took a couple boxes of these to one of the most challenging courses in the world. (Hint: may or may not begin with “Aug” and end with “usta.”) The results: strong. Our lead researcher tested them against a vicious slice (read: his normal shot), and the ball just kept flying straight.

THE VERDICT
Either he was having a Rory McIlroy–level day, or the balls work. On drives, at least. If you’re a purist, just know that there’s no “cheating” involved. It’s just the sophisticated application of extra-regulatory construction to your golf balls for the attainment of an enhanced drive. That’s it. Not “cheating” at all.
