Question by MikeyJ: What field of study lends itself best to golf research?
What field or fields would be best to study the science of golf? Mainly focusing either on the equipment or on the forces of the swing itself.
I would assume aerospace engineering for the flight of a golf ball. Possibly mechanical engineering for clubs? Physics for the swing? Can someone give an explanation for what the best fields are and also WHY?
Answer by RudieCantFail
I’d say aerospace engineering. That will cover both the physics of the whole package, as well as the materials used in the construction of golf equipment (which uses many of the same materials as what’s used in the aerospace industry).
