Soo good, for the jet propelled club head rotating robot arm thingy, his club head was in front of his hands 🤣 but his AOA was perfect, that would have flown across the whole golf course, can't believe how much a golf ball can take in some of those videos

If you ever wondered what my ball contact looks like.

I have a lot of materials science background/education, so I dunno if that's why when I watched the ball hitting the driver it just cracked me up.  The other vid mentioned in the clip is also worth watching.

I think the image of the ball hitting the driver is the perfect swing thought.

When batman told superman that his overswinging was only causing him to lose distance, he wasn't kidding

This was very cool to watch. I do still wonder specifically what the speed threshold is for a modern golf ball or club face where elasticity is lost and the materials transition to the plastic phase of deformation.

This video gives us ballpark figures, and that’s cool enough, and rather surprising to me. Particularly how much abuse the modern balls can take.

These guys literally strapped jet engines to a driver. I kid you not. I haven't watched the whole thing yet. Will get back to this.
