I thoroughly enjoyed this frame-by-frame (22,000 per second) video of a driver's impact on a Titleist golf ball. 

Pausing the video in the frame when the driver has driven the most impact into the ball is just incredible.

Here's a look:

Look at that! 

Is that what it feels like when you hit a drive? It doesn't feel like that for me. 

I also thought the part of the video talking about how a ball compresses pretty much equally whether your swing is 170 MPH or 120 MPH was really intriguing. More evidence that I need to slow things down when I hit.
