A golf club hitting the ball obviously put back spin on the ball, but if you don't hit the ball square you put side spin also on it. That's what puts the curve whether slice of hook on the ball. A barrel from a gun can't do that. All it can do is revolve the ball.

Now we know the dimples create less drag. The ball should maintain velocity better than an undimpled ball.
