Lobster balls not delicacy

Golf's latest push toward greener pastures might be in the ball
Do you like Lobster balls? Do you find them to be an Easter delicacy? Do you like hitting the golf ball 60-70 percent of the distance you normally do? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then the University of Maine may have a product for you.

From http://technabob.com:
The researchers found a way to use those lobster shells to make golf balls; more specifically, golf balls that are biodegradable. The shells are held together with a biodegradable binder and coating. Presumably they will just melt away to lobster dust over time in the environment. The balls sell for a bit under $1 each and cost 19 cents to make.

These lobster balls are the latest in a push toward green golf balls (no we're not referring to a new Srixon Tour Green). Research teams at the Danish Golf Union have discovered it takes between 100 to 1,000 years for a golf ball to decompose naturally. It is also estimated 300 million balls are lost or discarded in the United States alone, every year.

The Danish Golf Association found that during decomposition, golf balls dissolved to release dangerous levels of zinc and other heavy metals. When submerged in water, the zinc attaches itself to the ground sediment and poisoned the surrounding flora and fauna.

With all this said, we hope this isn't self defeating and that the Lobster shells they are using to make golf balls aren't already contaminated by golf balls.

Golf ball was invented and used for nearly 250 years. These balls were filled with goose down in a wet hand sewn into a leather ball is wet. Is reduced as dry skin and feathers expanded to create a ball hard and dense. This process takes time to ensure that the price was out of the masses is often higher than the selling price of the club.

Golf ball on the fairway right every time. Unfortunately not all born as Tiger Woods then drive a ball straight is often a difficult task. The pilot is the hardest club to control because it takes longer and results in many hooks and slices off the tee. But here are some tips to help you manage your disk drive .
