SirShanksAlot Comments: An very interesting patent from Nike Golf. Fiddling with grooves is one thing, but why not focus on golf ball aerodynamics. Dimples have long been a focus of engineers, this patent and test is actually pretty promising. The patent is basically for a resin coating that has an uneven texture to increase ball flight aerodynamics. See the full details at the link above. Here are the pics. Very cool!
