People have used advances in science and math to make sports safer for athletes. Science, technology, engineering and math are known as STEM - and STEM has a big impact on every sport that's played.
Although golf courses may appear flat, most have hills and dips that prevent a ball from traveling in a straight line. Golfers must take these surface slopes into consideration. Gravity will always pull the golf ball downward. The golfer must make the ball curve, or break, toward the hole.
In today's STEM In Sports!, learn more about break and how gravity affects the path of a golf ball!
