Golf Ball Hitting Steel At 150mph - Slow Motion (70,000 fps)
A golf ball hitting a steel plate at 150mph - filmed in super high-speed at 70,000 frames-per-second and played back in slow-motion.
Can golf balls deform that dramatically?
What you see in this clip is happening in less than 1/1000 th of a second. That's too fast for the human eye to perceive in detail,
but a super-slow motion camera can capture it.
Editor's note: The footage comes from the BBC and was shown during golf coverage.
We were unable to establish whether a regulation golf ball or a 'practice ball' (with higher elasticity) was used for this experiment.
It looks like a more flexible ball than the one Canadian golf champion Jason Zuback used to break the world ball speed record on the
Sports Science episode,
where he accelerated a golf ball to a speed of 328 km/h (204 mph).
