The effect of dimples is to assist the path of the golf ball, the largest part of the ball, the centre section will create the most vortices as the ball spins, the smaller section to each side of the main turbulence create a series of eddies, that act as a form of stabilisation, and not as susceptible to side winds. The spherical shape will almost create a side vortex acting as a stabilisers. If you consider the gyroscopic effect of the side

The rise and fall of the air flow across the dimpled surface creates an impetus that contributes to the greater distance achieved with the rotating ball.
