PGA Mail - Keeping the industry posted

Abstract:
*A QUEENSLAND University research study could provide a new-look harder-wearing and better-performing golf ball. The Brisbane Courier Mail newspaper reported last week that some of the University of Queensland's most sophisticated nanotechnology researchers have been working on the project and the lucrative Japanese market is already sitting up and taking notice. The article said in part: "Darren Martin of UQ's Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nano Technology leads a research team that has come up with a way to dramatically increase the strength of the material that covers golf balls. Potentially, millions of dollars are at stake if the technology can be translated into a ball-covering material that resists scuffing and performs more consistently in terms of spin on the green."
