Not only the golf ball does not explode it is not even crushed by the heavy weight passing over it. You can watch the incredible footage below:



The same rubber compound in a golf ball that makes it all bouncy also imparts incredible durability to it. Although the golf ball was a bit deformed, just think of the ordeal it endured!
