A Golf Ball Looks Like Jell-O When It's Hit at 150 MPH by a Steel Plate

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffOctober 15, 2013

If you've ever wanted to see a golf ball turn to Jell-O, look no further.

According to SportsGrid, the average PGA golfer hits a ball at around 90 to 100 mph, while power drivers can hit it 145 to 150 mph. The above video is what happens when a steel plate hits a ball at 150 mph, and the video is slowed down to 70,000 frames per second. 

The ball looks about as wide as a pencil at the most compressed point. Insane.

Hat tip to Next Impulse Sports for the video.
