that had to be shot out of a high powered tube or something i dont see a club making a golfball do that hitting steel

Sean said...

I don't think it matters how it was fired, that is just bloody awesome!

Anon - That's the point, you won't see this happening, UNLESS you crack out the super slo mo.

Curse our lazy eyes!

are golf balls that sturdy and flexible? I thought it would've cracked into a bunch of pieces. Cool stuff

Anonymous said...

"Currently, balls are made in two or three parts. A two-piece ball is made of rubber and plastic, and is mostly used by the casual golfer. These balls last a lot longer than the three-piece balls the pros use and hence make up 70% of all golf ball production. A three-piece ball consists of a plastic cover, windings of rubber thread, and a core that contains a gel or liquid (sugar and water) or is solid. A dimple pattern on the surface results in good flight performance."

...except that didn't answer anything, now did it?

Golf balls come in 2, 3, 4, and (only TaylorMade's Penta) 5 pieces. 2 and 3 are most common though.

The ball would NOT react like this with a golf club hit, even with a slow motion camera. No matter how many pieces.

Of course it's shot from a tube. How many golfers are gonna get it exactly in frame like that... :D

The point is watching what happens to it.

you are all idiots, this is clearly fake.

This is a shoop. I can tell by the pixels and having seen a few shoops in my time.

a golf ball is hard it can't do that , it's not rubber !

doesn't matter whether it's shooped
it's fucking awesome

It's fake, not a real golf ball.

animated cad or something, while a golf ball no doubt distorts some, it cannot distort this much without exploding. i suppose it could be a silicone replica.
but either way its an interesting study of physics.

Real golf balls have a solid core and could never flatten out like that. Plus, it's not even spinning which means it was a still shot that was photoshopped.

Anonymous said...

Actually, there are PLENTY of golf balls with elastic/other material cores. You don't know shit, above anon. The lack of spinning(not that you see the ball for more than a couple of frames before impact anyway) doesn't mean shit either, there are plenty of methods of firing an object without causing it to spin. If anything the film makers probably didn't want a spin for this impact shot. Physics fail

It isn't real...
it is?!?!

There is no ball

too many shitty blogs, with too many asshole posting stupids opininons no one cares...

...oh... wait a sec...
shut

Dre said...

Fake, balls don't distort to that extent when impacted

Anonymous said...

I faked it with your mom.

Unknown said...

Fake. It is CGI. Even if we were to believe that a golf ball could compress like that, which it can't, the multiple layers would compress and decompress at different rates. So as it squishes sown you would see an uneven distribution of the force. Nice try though.

I love how everyone here is suddenly a physicist and knows exactly what would and would not happen. Have any of you ever tried this? Do you know from experience? Or are you part of the 99% of people on the Internet who crap out of their mouths? You don't know how fast it's going, what material it's made out of, or any other information. Yet, because you've seen one or two "shooped/shopped/schlupped" photos, you're automatically the expert on what is real and what isn't. I'll tell you what's real--idiots populating the Internet. You people are why we can't have nice things. Now, good day to you all.

Anon's are why torture is on it's way back.

The debate over waterboarding was probably filled with anon's and an anon was also in charge.

"He's clearly not being tortured because he's not dead! STFU with the shopped BS marine dude."

I will give you infinity of your 6th item if you all SHUT THE HELL UP! anyways... that's a pretty cool GIF... I'm going to see if I can't get Mythbusters to show us if it's really true..

Stolen:

Can golf balls deform that dramatically? What you see in this clip is happening in less than 1/1000 th of a second. Tht'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)

I highly doubt this is real. most of the golf balls i have cut open have had a hard rubber core. which will distort to a degree but nothing like this. the rubber like core would be under too much strain and crack.

THE PIXELS.

Andrew said...

First this is real. Golf balls do distort like this, it is exactly how you get long distance shots while playing the sport. This particular golf ball was filmed in a laboratory setting so as to get the slow motion capture and instead of relying on a human swing the cinematographers chose to shoot the ball at a steel plate. Second, we have trolls in this comment section saying it's fake, just ignore them.

funny how everybody knows the REAL facts about golf balls but nobody agrees.
the only option for and innocent onlooker like me is to assume that none of know what your talking about. cool video either way.

Water deforms when hit, but if a human fell from 200 feet it would be as hard as concrete. Force enacts differently than one might expect at times. I know physics quite well, and since I'm not familiar with the materials involved in this particular golf ball I know that this is "possible" in terms of the basic principles and that's good enough for me.

Dude, thats sick!!!... i wonder what happens if you hit a snowball against steel.

FAKE

This is real, why? because I say so. wait no, it's fake because I say so. Wait, I don't know what I'm talking about like the rest of these fuck heads. Get data to back your shit up, get a link to prove it to the rest of us. I love how everyone knows rocket science and physics to a T.

IT'S JUST A GIF PEOPLE! A stupid one at that...there aren't even any bouncing titties. It's such a trivial thing to argue about. Go out, meet people, get laid, have a life...you can thank me later.

Anonymous said...

after seeing this, i put a golf ball in a hydraulic jack, and the ball cracked well before getting nearly as thin as in the video. On top of that, it cracked at 740 psi. you have to hit a wall at ridiculous speeds to make the ball feel that kind of force.

Logan Creed said...

thats pretty wicked

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

reading all this posts was better than watching that video. i dont even care if its real or not, you people are fucking hilarious!!

This is some 9/11 Tower 7 physics at work. In other words: FAKE!

Anonymous said...

Shh, who cares if it's fake or not? It looks cool.
Simply put, if it was real, it would have been fired out of a tube, for accuracy purposes and consistency.

The only thing that bugs me is how the golf ball must be traveling amazingly quickly, but seems to hang in the same spot in the air after bouncing off the metal. I'm no physicist, but I would have expected it to continue bouncing backwards... Who knows, might happen.

I really love reading all the comments for Stumble clips. I can't believe how the internet has made people stupid. Especially when people think that there are going to be thousands of other people viewing what they're inputting, so they're afraid to go "against the grain" You see how many people automatically write it's fake because they're afraid of being chastised by everyone else. This is 100% real people. It's OLD when balls were more rubber band cored. It's propelled at 150 miles per hour into a steel wall. Go to youtube, or google golf ball slow motion impact. They show clubs hitting balls and causing this effect...just because your eyes can't keep up with something when it really happens, doesn't mean it's fake...you can't see bullets coming out of the end of a gun, but it will still kill you if you pointed it at yourself.

Inelastic collisions... its a physics concept... I don't expect any of you to understand...

Anon said...

Your boobs are fake.

Anonymous said...

Wow.... well I don't know why I am going to waste my time typing this but this animation is CLEARLY a FUCKING LAVA LAMP. All of you are severely retarded for even letting the thought that this might be real enter into your pathetic minds, and yes it is photoshopped. No golf ball would ever do that after collision or even compress that much. Good fucking riddance.

Sicarus said...

haha! You are all morons! How the hell can you tell if it's real or not? Have you ever seen a golf ball move in slow motion with your own eyes?? Stop being so sceptical and start realizing that certain things actually are possable, even if you can't figure it out in your tiny litte brains. Morons. Just coz you can't explain it, doesn't mean it can't work.

Jones said...

I'm really happy all these trolls know that is fake cuz the rest of us in the real world are amazed that they could capture this on film and even more impressed that they could turn it into a simple file like a GIF

I hope one day the internet realizes that photoshop is not a video editing program.

Anonymous said...

At least 50 of you idiots said, "There's no way it could compress like that, it would explode." Have you ever seen a slow-mo of a golf ball being hit by a golf club? Have you ever hit a golf ball into a solid object? Did you see the compression? Did the ball explode? Now put this into a laboratory setting and tell me how this is not possible.

Just because something is amazing, doesn't mean it's fake. So many stupid people in the world; it's no wonder we're in such a mess.

To get the correct answer as to whether a golf ball can do this... just take a golf ball and put in in a vice and crank down on it. You will have the correct answer for yourself.

Golf ball IS very flexible under pressure.
That movie has shot with high speed camera, thousands of pics per sec.
Check out Google or Youtube "high speed camera"
