Weighing In: The size and weight of a golf ball…
Have you ever wondered “How much does a golf ball weigh and what is its diameter?”
Well…wonder no more!
A golf ball’s size and weight are determined by the PGA. Their rules state that an official golf ball must weigh 1.62 ounces and must measure 1.68 inches in diameter. Here is a link to those rules: http://www.usga.org/Rule-Books/Rules-on-Clubs-and-Balls/Appendix-III-%E2%80%93-The-Ball/ and here is a list of their “conforming” balls: http://www.usga.org/ConformingGolfBall/gball_list.pdf
