You Can Buy 'Illegal' Golf Balls That Only Fly Straight

You Can Buy 'Illegal' Golf Balls That Only Fly Straight

Do you always hook or slice your shots on the golf course? Are you tired of spending hours looking for your lost ball? Polara Golf may have the answer to all your problems.

The company have developed advanced technology that enables a golf ball to be substantially straighter on slice and hook shots.

As you can see in the below diagram, it uses shallow and deep dimples to lower lift and reduce drag while enhancing weight distribution.

So how does it work? From the tee, you must point the arrow on the ball directly at your target - or line it up with the center of the fairway.

If you are playing from the fairway, play the ball "as it lies" or re-adjust the ball orientation so the arrow again points at your target.

Polara's 'Straight Self Correcting Golf Balls' fly straight because they exhibit less aerodynamic lift than other golf balls.

Polara go on to claim that if you slice a golf ball 100 feet, then the anti-slice golf ball will slice it back around 25 ft, leaving you on the fairway instead of the rough stuff.

PGA professional and YouTuber Rick Shiels has since tested the above with remarkable results.

Shiels, who used a regular Taylormade TP5 ball beforehand to show the direction of his hooked shot, clearly attempts to slice his tee shot right but the ball appears to correct itself and fly straight down the fairway.

This is perfect for golfers who always find the rough or worse, lose their ball when playing a round with mates.

It must be noted that these 'illegal' balls are designated for recreational golfers and not for tournament play.
