At impact, an elastic collision occurs. Energy is conserved, and the ball travels towards its target. Once the ball is in the air, we can calculate where it will go based on formulas.
Due to known elements such as the launch angle, initial velocity, the mass of the ball, the time of the flight, and the rate of acceleration due to gravity, we can accurately predict where the ball will land, and how high it will reach at its apex.
The equation used to determine where the ball will land is d = vi•t + 1/2*a*t^2. Using this information with no outside variables, we can predict precisely where the ball will land.
The launch angle is important to determine the height and distance of the golf shot. A higher launch angle will produce a shorter shot, whereas a lower launch angle will produce a longer shot.
The driver is 10.5 degrees. My pitching wedge is 48 degrees. The driver will produce a lower shot with more distance.
There are obviously natural variables such as spin rate, air resistance, and rain; however, we will save that for another lesson. I hope you learned something today about the beautiful, yet complicated game of golf!
