Title
(EN) GOLF BALL WITH NON-CIRCULAR SICKLE-SHAPED DIMPLES
(FR) BALLE DE GOLF AVEC ALVEOLES NON CIRCULAIRES FALCIFORMES
Abstract
(EN)
A new dimple configuration (6) for the surface (4) of a golf ball (2) is characterized by non-circular sickle-shaped dimples (6). Each dimple includes a convex outer edge having a first radial configuration and an inner edge having a second radial configuration. Preferably, the inner edge is concave and the inner and outer edges meet at opposite sides of the dimple (6). The area between the edges is recessed relative to the golf ball surface. At least some of the sickle-shaped dimples (6) are arranged in an interlocking pattern to maximize the dimpled area of the golf ball surface (4).
(FR)
Selon cette invention, une nouvelle configuration (6) de la surface (4) d'une balle de golf (2) est caractérisée par des alvéoles (6) non circulaires falciformes. Chaque alvéole comprend une arête extérieure convexe, ayant une première configuration radiale et une arête intérieure, ayant une seconde configuration radiale. L'arête intérieure est de préférence concave et les arêtes intérieure et extérieure se rejoignent aux extrémités opposées de l'alvéole (6). La surface comprise entre les arêtes forme un creux par rapport à la surface de la balle de golf. Au moins quelques unes des alvéoles (6) falciformes s'encastrent afin de maximiser l'aire alvéolaire de la surface (4) de la balle de golf.
