Since you have all enjoyed this discussion on rotating non-inertial
frames of reference so much, here's another one for you.

In golf, a typical pitching wedge has an angle of 45 degrees. Since
angle of incidence equals angle of reflection why doesn't the ball
bounce off the club, go straight up and hit you in the face? (A good
golfer would hit it 100m.)
