What is the flying object?

We took a call from the teaching professional at the Bryanston Country Club, Dean Nysschen. He told us that while he was going over a pupil's swing analysis video on the slow mo, he saw a disk like object shoot across the sky on the video. On normal view speed, you can not see the object fly across the screen, but when the video is slowed down, you can clearly see something shoot across the sky at great speed.

Ziggy the White Zulu

Ziggy travels around the province praying outside government buildings and he believes this is one of his callings. Dressed in Zulu traditional attire, he reads the Bible beside his Mercedes Benz. His car number plate reads "Mjita" which means friend in Zulu. He uses his cultural regalia as a tool to preach and says he has been in the ministry for 40 years while his “public service” duties only started six years ago.
