The reason behind marking golf balls with dimples is to reduce aerodynamic pressure drag. The laminar air flow that drags the ball is converted into a turbulent flow, which makes flight easier and smoother for the ball. Here's more...The golf ball went through many different experiments and tests before evolving into the form that we see today. Earlier, attempts were made to manufacture golf balls using leather and goose feathers. In order to make the ball hard, the practice of stuffing wet feathers followed by stitching the leather was followed. However, the ball had a short life since it became useless when it came in contact with water. In 1845, the gum obtained from the Sapodilla tree was used to manufacture golf balls. These balls were known as gutta-percha balls, because the gum used for the ball contained polyterpene, commonly known as gutta-percha. These balls had a smooth surface which caused a shorter drive than the feather-stuffed ball. However, it was observed that marked gutta-percha balls covered a longer distance than the smooth ones. This discovery led to many experiments in golf ball designing, and finally the dimpled ball was accepted as the standard one in 1930.
