Golf Clubs

NASA has developed many high-performance materials that have subsequently been used in the manufacture of golf clubs. One such material, Zeemet, was originally designed for the International Space Station. Zeemet's super-elastic properties and its ability to restrain structural vibrations (known as high-damping attributes) make it a good fit for golf clubs. The Nicklaus Golf Company created a line of sticks using Zeemet inserts, which put more spin on the ball and give the golfer more control.
