A Realistic View of the Moment of Impact
By mustang6560 on 10/30/13
A couple weeks ago, we posted a video of what a golf ball looks like when it's hit by a steel plate at 150mph. A few oobers challenged the authenticity of the video as the golf ball appeared to turn into Jell-O. Well, we found another slow motion video of the moment of impact, courtesy of Titleist. In addition to showing us what happens to a golf ball at impact, the video also provides us with a cool behind-the-scenes look at the Titleist R&D lab.

That's more like it.
Matt McGee says:
That looks more like the pattern that's left on the face of my driver... usually somewhere around the heel.

BX is right. It is more commensurate with the slow-motion video they show us during golf tournaments on TV. And my late step-grandfather, who helped develop test-and-measuring devices for 3M, probably would have enjoyed meeting Paul Furze.
Nathan, thanks for posting this!
I'm so jealous of that kinda job.
That other video is fake and has been going around in email chains a few years
