  1. "Since the "centrifugal force" you speak of does not exist I suggest that your parents wasted a good amount of money on your education." Most of the explanations I have read here are making a fundamental mistake. The original question was why does the ball end up farther away then when it started, not how fast it seems to be moving. For the ball to end up farther away then when it started there has to be the right circumstances. First, the putt must be fairly short, mostly less than 6 feet unless green speed and slope are very pronounced. Second the green speed must be fairly high, this means less friction on the rolling ball. Thirdly the putt is almost always going to be across at least some kind of slope and the ball will be approaching the hole from the high side. As the ball hits the lip and begins to fall into the cup it will pick up some velocity due to gravity. If the entry speed+the speed increase due to gravity is high enough the ball will not have time for it's center of mass to fall below the lip of the cup before it exits, usually at about a right angle to the initial angle of approach. Call this the point of no return. Under very exact circumstances the ball can make a 360 deg turn and still not drop into the cup. But these usually end up very close to the lip as the ball will have expended most of it's energy by the time it exits. Here we are talking about putts that end up farther away then when they started. So we have a ball that was initially struck with too much force and has now picked up additional energy by briefly falling down hill. As it exits the cup at about a 90 deg angle to it's initial approach the ball is now going down hill on a fast green so it is quite easy to see that it may roll some distance farther than where it started. In exceptional circumstances, ie: severly sloped greens and very fast green speeds(think Augusta National and the Masters) the ball may roll a considerable distance more than when it started. Again, this usually happens under circumstances of a fast green and some slope to the putt. The bold is the reason forums are both good and bad. make reference in jest, and receive a stupid remark such as above. Either add to the conversation, rebuttal in an educated matter, or continue along. Centrifugal, yes, is a "made up" or perceived or what ever one wants to call it "force". it is an easier way to teach those for every force there is an equivalent opposing force. so, you give the negative force a name. or, you put a minus sign in front. doesn't matter. But, thank you for your observations. I dont mind being wrong, i am married, with kids, so being correct happens, uh, never. Good day. stop knocking people and what their parents do/did for them. Parenting is hard yet rewarding. YOUR INBOX IS FULL TRYING TO MESSAGE YOU ABOUT YOUR WANTED TO BUY POST A FEW MINUTES AGO
