This site examines the physics involved in driving a golf ball
off the tee. The objective of a drive is to achieve the greatest
distance while leaving the golf ball in the middle of the fairway.
Several factors will be considered in achieving the longest, and
most accurate drive. The factors include calculating the velocity
of the golf ball after the club and ball collide, the mass of the
club head, launch angle, the shape of the club face, and finding
the optimal golf ball.
