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

Best with the sound on, for the grumbling you do at @iacas:-$

Failure is not an option! :-P 

I keep trying and it's just out of my range.

I may have to start posting my misses too.  Maybe we'll qualify for an honorable mention...

...or a stupid flopper badge.  :8)

I give double extra credit for effort considering it looks like you are wearing both a wrist and knee brace!

How about uploading to YouTube…?

I'll try that.  Can't just embed a video like I would a picture from my phone?

No, doesn't work. Forces people to download the video to see it, and that doesn't work on mobile devices, and is annoying on computers. Plus, it uses our storage space instead of Google's. :-)

That's why we always ask people to embed videos.

Also… it says so right here. :-D

I've created an award (you can see at the top of the Site Awards) and will grant it to anyone who films themselves hitting a flop shot above head height and catching the ball before it hits the ground while still holding onto your wedge, then posts that video here in this thread as an embedded YouTube or Vimeo video for all to enjoy.

Your camera app should have an upload to YT button. I shoot a video, upload it, copy the link and paste it in a post here many times w/no problem.

Ok, let's try this.

Throwing myself on the mercy of the judges as to whether it's high enough...

 

Nice! Looks high enough to me.

Woohoo!  :dance:

FWIW, I found getting real flippy helped.  Norma pitching with a little shaft lean is death.

Yep, flippy and shaft leaning back on the setup makes it real high (or an absolute nightmare of a blade :) 

 

I'm sure @iacas will draw some fancy lines to make sure it was high enough :-D

I'm not sure why he's asking… I gave him the award after I posted my post #98. Pity he didn't notice the new award on his account. :-P

I was in shock! :-) 

There should be an additional "senior" badge.  The hardest part for us fat old guys is getting out of the gate!

I'm gonna keep working on it to see if I can't get some style points for the next one. :-D

Hit it higher! Anyone could have caught mine, for example.
