What is in a Top Golf Golfball?

I have been to Top Golf for 3 different events this year and was always amazed by their RFID technology and have always left wondering “What is in a Top Golf golfball?”.

So when I saw a few “Top Golf” golf balls in the $1 ball bin at a golf store I bought them and decided to answer that question.

2016-01-23 17.54.22 2016-01-23 17.56.28 2016-01-23 18.12.01 2016-01-23 18.26.23 2016-01-23 18.32.08
That little “passive EPC Gen 2 ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID” tag is what makes TopGolf so awesome.  Now all I need to do is invest in a UHF RFID reader to see what is actually on the tag.

Protip: Sawing a golf ball in half is a lot harder than it sounds.
