This looks like a R&D skin test. The polymer coating on a golf ball is very thin and incredibly tough. Finished golf balls now have titanium cores rather than the rubber bands of older balls so it couldn't possibly do what is shown here. A golf ball deforms about 15 - 25% when struck at full speed. The pros achieve about 115mph clubhead speed at impact, your average club golfer gets between 85-95mph. It's the deformation that allows the grooves on the club to gain purchase on the skin of the ball and produce the spin. So no BS here just a stretch test of the coating.

I'm calling BS. If this happened, wouldn't the marks people get from getting hit with a golf ball be its full circumfrence and NOT just a little bit of one pole?

Ah, Lord Bull-pootington. I wasn't expecting you to visit me this evening.

@Judio, thanks for the link. I checked it out, and what the guy actually said was that the golf ball was either not a normal golf ball, or they were significantly wrong about the 150 mph speed of impact.

So he thinks it's a fake.

I don't believe this because the material on the outside of a golf ball is not capable of stretching like this shows. At that speed rather than stretch and bend as this shows the plastic outer shell would just shatter instead.

Don't think it would? Go try it and you will see that when you hit those hard enough the outside just breaks apart. It is just plastic after all.

The inside part being able to deform stretch and bend makes sense though. Since it is like a ball of rubber bands inside.

it seems to be true... apparently hit at 150 mph which is faster than tiger wood's (golf ball, not strippers) hits.

This is legit. Golf balls really can deform like that, try putting one in a vice.

yeah i agree with k-two, i'ts hard to believe that an object as rigid as a golf ball would be that elastic even with an extreme amount of force.
the reason golf balls travel the distances they do is partially because of their ability to keep their shape when struck.
and yeah henryhendrix "honestly" some people do care and you just sound like an non-nice individual :D

Thank you, k-two, for that 'two cents' . Honestly, nobody cares.

This is certainly not a golf ball - it is flattened (by air resistance?) even before it touches the wall. It is changing its cubic capacity, so it must be hollow with a gas filling. Judging by its oscillations after rebounding, the outer shell is probably soft rubber.

My two cents ...

If i had a GOLD ball then i would be one to risk breaking it in a stunt like this...

I don't think this ball is of the golf or gold variety.

LOL IAB, Who did know that a "gold" ball could be flattened out like a water balloon and back again?
