Default EnABLE for golf balls?

I read somewhere that selective filling in of the dimples can control the spin. Anyone tried it?

The article said that by filling in on two sides you can create an axis of prefered spin. This is illegal now under USGA rules. The only illegal balls I have seen for sale are for longer distance. I thought it was amusing in general.

eh - the money is made on the putting green - of course getting there with one less swing does help things.

This is a wonderful idea!

I ain't worried about no stinkin' rules.

As long as I use the proper orientation of my balls when I tee up, I can cure my wicked slice.

Supposedly they were sold as no hook no slice.

No hook, no slice
Must be nice!

Now why does that remind of an audio saying?

Check your grip and the angle of your club face. I'm no golf expert, but I use to have a terrible hook but found that an improper grip allows the club face to turn slightly during the swing. Not good.
