Flop Shot Catch Challenge


Recommended Posts

Finally got around to doing this:

I got it on the first try tonight, but my camera was not set up properly. Took me about 5 more tries to get it the second time, which is this video.

Is this any better than my first or do I still need to go higher?? This is my work shirt and I decided to catch it in my shirt pocket  

I just had to find a lie that had some sand underneath to get the bounce of the wedge helping me.  Just a nice and easy swing is the trick.

Had to get the "old fart" legs moving to make the catch.

Mike Sullivan challenges the play for "not above head height" and upon further review, the call on the green is overturned: not a successful Flop Shot Catch challenge.

Booooooo!

I had in my head to get it above my shoulders, which I did. Not sure why I thought that, though. Anyways, I'll try it again and get it up the extra 6 inches to get it clearly above my head.

Tried again today.  I can hit it about 10 - 12 feet in the air but about 10 - 12 feet in front of me.  If I could have a designated base runner???

So… everyone else has given up on this? C'mon… it's fun and you can earn a badge/award.

Was my first one acceptable or do I need to have another go?

I don't know how anything less than 10' could be considered a flop shot... less than 10' is more of a chip (or chitch) than a flop shot. The first couple of videos, @iacasand @phillyk, those were legit.

I tried again today on a raised (sloped) tee box.   I won't quit but it isn't encouraging.  My 20 yard flop shot is definitely improving.  I used it today to jump over a sandtrap to a tight pin placement.

Just get a nice fluffy lie. It's harder to do off of flat ground. I mean I can hit it of a tight lie but it's much harder to catch.

I found it easy with hard ground and fluffy lie, because the bounce will help launch it more. I think mine went 10-12ft straight up. I took about 3 steps to get it. Just having the fluffy lie, i would scoop too much and the ball would barely get off the ground.

Just to show I'm trying, here is today's failed attempt. Keep in mind I most likely have a torn meniscus in my left knee but I felt it was my duty to try as a Staff member!:-P

 

My brother from another mother!

    • Even in a big city, trying to ban guns only helps the criminals. Criminals don’t turn in their guns, only the law abiding citizens which are being unarmed. Pretty simple stuff.
    • Day 159.  Periodic 6-iron shots (at least one block of at least five minutes) during breaks in a long meeting schedule.  Indoors, off a mat, into a net, priority piece related to backswing length. I also tried quarantine day 13 drill (high pitches/flops), something I don't know how to do, and I think I was doing the drill wrong.  All my shots went left.  Thankfully, I was using foam balls.  I'm going to review the video later (time permitting), along with what people tried when those drills were released and see if their feedback applies to me, and try again
    • I changed out the the bag this year going over to Ping from primarily Tayormade clubs. Driver: Ping G-410   12 degree Ping G-410  5wood Ping G-410. 7 wood Ping G410. 5 hybrid Ping G410 5 iron to PW   I was fitted to play Orange dot which is 2 degrees flat for my irons. Playing around with the adjustable driver and metal woods. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
