Wonder how strong the magnet is. For example, would it fling off if you swung a driver it was connected to? Wondering since they show it on a putter.

I would be absolutely shocked if the magnet was that strong.

NdFeB magnets can resist very strong pulls perpendicular to the surface they are attached to, but shearing forces along the surface tend to pull them away (and off). I would expect the camera to go flying off a driver if you gave it a hard swing. If they (or you) applied a high-friction coating it might do better.
