Have You Seen What A Golf Ball Does At Impact?

Below is a video from the Titleist company. Yes I’m a Callaway staff pro but the Titelist is of course a very good ball as well. In fact, I think there was a law suit at one time with the two companies fitting over the patents of each ball or the copy of one another’s balls etc. Still it is fun to see with the slow motion camera how the ball reacts.

Titleist also claims that the velocity of the golf club head is not a reflection of the compressing of the golf ball! What! You mean if I have a slower swing speed I don’t need a softer golf ball? Well they show as an example a 175 mph swing speed down to a 125 mph. Don’t know about you but I don’t have a 125 mph. Wish they would have tested 95 so most of us could fit in there.

Here’s the video, (click on the little arrows along side the speaker to enlarge)
