Let's see some more height, people. Nobody calls a ball that barely gets to chest height a flop shot… ;-)

Yeah, come on....

 I can pick the ball off the green with a wedge too, but that doesn't make it a flop shot!

:roll:

I will be making one with more height once I can get to the course.

I've been doing these on my own for years. Should be able to get to the range this week to film one!

Absolutely.

Jury is still out on whether I can do the flop shot though.  Gonna try this week.  

It could be ugly...  :8)

I'm just messing with you. I'll redeem myself with a better one. I feel bad about posting that one now. I just see a flop as a flop. No matter how high. I can't catch a chip or pitch, so..

Great idea, Erik. Will give this a go tomorrow, but high shots definitely aren't in my comfort zone! 

Looking forward to these getting more and more ridiculous. Maybe next month will see 'Flop shot catch off hardpan', 'Make par on a par 5 using only a sand wedge' or 'Escape a bunker with a putter'... :-P

I practice this a bit this weekend with my 58-12. I got the shot to launch pretty well, but it was too far out of my reach to catch. I will keep working on it.

The flop or your explosiveness from a standing position? :-P

Just do an Ichiro and start running as part of your follow through. ;-)

I tried this on the range today from a fluffy lie and can hit it high enough but it's still about 20 yards out.   I don't have but a 56º sand wedge.   What club is being used?  Is it probable with a 56º wedge?

I've done it with a 52 with the right lie, I do it all the time with a 58

Is there a bonus if I "Phil" the wedge shot and have to run backwards to catch the ball?

Sure. You get that shot on film and I'll buy you a beer next time I see you.

Double bonus if you catch the ball while doing this:
