Vectors in Golf

“When you hit a golf ball, the direction of motion of the club head determines the direction of the force vector, which can be broken into two perpendicular components that determine the direction of motion of the ball and its spin.

Golfers can use golf clubs with different club head angles to vary the vertical direction as well as the spin. They can also adjust the way they hit the ball to change angles and spin” (kaya pala nagpapalit sila ng golf club :O)
