So many golf inventions come from Buffalo, New York. There's the, uhhh… and the, uhmmm… well, never mind. NanoDynamics, Inc. of - you guessed it - Buffalo, New York have reportedly come up with a golf ball that can correct its own flight path. It's no miracle cure, but the ball supposedly corrects slight drifts and wobbles by better channeling the energy received from the clubhead.
Says CEO Keith Blakely, "It also behaves much more controllably on a putting surface, which is how we hope to get interest on the pro circuit. It has a reduced tendency to break. It doesn't pop or jump or roll." NanoDynamics has apparently not only conquered the slice, but gravity as well.
The ball is expected to sell for $7 to $8 apiece in the spring of 2005, though the ball has yet to be submitted for USGA approval. NanoDynamics has set up a site at ndmxgolf.com to show off their balls.
