I can't help but wonder how much the attitude of the golfer defined him as being added to the suit vs. the general approach of just 'sue everyone and let the Judge sort it out' (which also seems too common these days)?
There really are more important things than Golf. Sheesh. What is happening out there
golf is a lame game
that the golf ball was covered in blood from a millisecond impact with a head is dubious. and the ball weighs 1.62 oz. please explain how that knocks one out and cuts a gash in the head...
i smell bull whap and law suit.
Guidelines The USGA and R&A (European golf governing body) rule that the velocity of the golf ball shall not be greater than 250 ft. (76.2 m.) per second. A maximum tolerance of 2 percent will be allowed.
Effects on Speed Besides club speed, there are other factors that can affect ball velocity. Hitting the sweet spot of the club is the most important factor. The material of the club and angle of approach can also produce varying ball speeds. Titanium offers the greatest increase to ball velocity. Equation To capture the velocity of the ball use this equation: velocity = (clubhead speed x coefficient of restitution) / (1.0 + (mass of ball / mass of clubhead)) 1.62 oz. is the weight of most golf balls.
Example of Velocity With a 100-mph swing using an 11-degree driver with .825 COR and 200 gram head weight, assuming a center hit the golf ball, velocity would be 148 mph.
Considerations That fastest velocity is just after impact. The golf ball will continue to lose speed until it reaches its peak height. The ball will than face loss of momentum and spin rate due to air resistance and gravity. From that point the golf ball will reach a max speed of 72 mph.
How Fast Does a Golf Ball Travel?
joking aside, I have 0 sympathy for folks that buy, build and live along golf courses and don't expect it to interfere with their environment.
