The Polara Ultimate Straight Golf Ball looks, feels and hits like a regular ball with one slight twist: The self-correcting design actually helps the ball go straighter. The secret’s in the dimples, which vary in size, depth and location, unlike those on a standard ball. Though it doesn’t conform to USGA standards and can’t be used in tournament play, the Polara ball is an answered prayer for slice- and hook-riddled recreational players. “We’re not trying to remove the skill from the game,” says Dave Felker, Ph.D., the ball’s inventor and head of technology for Polara Golf. “We’re just trying to reduce the frustration and embarrassment for recreational golfers and help them play more from the fairway.” For store information, visit PolaraGolf.com.
