Balanced Golf Balls

Balanced Golf Balls | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
Putt your way to the truth! In this science project, you'll test whether a balanced golf ball makes a difference in your putt.


The hypothesis is that the balanced golf ball does not produce better putt results compared to unbalanced golf balls.

Method & Materials

You will randomly separate the golf balls into two groups, test the second group to find out their balance points, and putt the golf balls into a hole two meters away.
You will need five amateur golf players, one practice putting green, twenty golf balls of the same brand and model, five golf putters, one beaker filled with water, one pack of salt, one marker pen, and one measuring tape.


The results of the experiment showed that the total successful putts using the golf balls whose balance points were unknown were comparable to the golf balls whose balance points were known. This proved the hypothesis to be true.

Why do this project?

This science project is interesting because it tests a common assumption about golf balls and puts it to the test.

Also Consider

Consider repeating the experiment with different brands or types of golf balls, varying the distance from which the golf balls are being shot, or using the Check-Go to find the balance point for each golf ball.
