    Did the wood get wet, or hot in the process of getting the ball to go inside the wood?

    Looks to me like he set it right in the hot water, so I think it got wet. Seems like the thin part of the wood would warp as it dries. Guess some woods warp easier than others.

    Hey Leo, yes. I should have put a pic of that too. I heated a pan of water and soaked it in there for a few minutes and it popped right in there.

    But that would remove the mystery

    Nice idea, I know a few golfers who'd find it amusing.
