ARE TREES RE­ALLY 90% AIR?

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - The Golf Life - – Joel Beall

▶ Golfers of­ten tell each other this as they at­tempt to ma­noeu­vre past (or through) trees that get in their way. But be­fore you talk your­self into that hero shot, take heed. We tested the “90 per­cent air” claim on six species of shrubs. Only 5 per­cent of the balls made it through unim­peded to the green. On av­er­age, our shots made it just 41.5 per­cent of the way to their in­tended tar­get, with 11.6 per­cent ric­o­chet­ing back in our di­rec­tion.
