    Testing golf ball aerodynamics.? how?

    i need a simple way to test the aerodynamic properties of spheres with different surfaces.

    i was thinking of doing it with liquid as in this video

    is there any other way i can do it or perhaps a way i can do it the way they do it in the video

    please help


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    What properties are you trying to calculate/test for?

    Thanks

    merely the airflow difference around the ball (shape). so i can compare it with that around a smooth surfaced ball.
