SPY PICS! – @PingTour G30 Driver... The Most Un-PING Thing PING has ever Done? #Turbulator

Not as gimmeky as you might expect, and I’ve been wondering when this would first appear in a driver. From a purely fluid mechanics perspective, airplane wings have turbulators, the golf ball dimpels act as turbulators (read huge affect on performance). It will be interesting to see how this will affect the performance fo a driver (already a fairly aerodynamic object). The turbulence created by a golf ball dimple reduces form drag by creating a turbulent boundary layer on the ball which creates a smaller “wake”. Similarly, I could see the turbulators reducing the drag, especially since the golf swing operates in an arc; the turbulator on the top should allow the top boundary layer to stay attached longer, thereby reducing form drag (less wake created). Additionaly, the ammount (size) or vortex shedding could be reduced with these turbulators. Without a wind tunnel and smok...
