The diameter of a golf ball is  42.672 MM

I saw these Callaway rubber balls at Walmart.

I wonder what the speed  / spin / control characteristics of these balls if tried in table tennis.

If it is more spin, I am all for it.

BTW I saw some golf balls that look like pickleball balls. I wonder what the difference is in golf.
I hate the horrible sound of pickleball ball hitting the dead pickleball paddle.

I would think the ball is too heavy for a mild mannered table tennis bat
and superballs are crazy to play with, do a backspin the the next bounce it goes forward then back etc
