Nicely done. I'm in awe of your lighted practice facility BTW.

Yeah, it's nice to have nearby. Kid goes to sleep around 7 and I can go there and get a couple of hours of practice in. I get there about once a week or so. It also has a large lighted range (although I struggle to see ball flight past about 100 yards) and a lighted practice green in addition to the chipping area.

See? It's easy. Congratulations!

Especially when I looked more carefully at your technique and borrowed it.

Got it on the second attempt.  Thought the slope would let me pop it up and not have to move. But I need more slope or talent, one of the two. 

Good job, cheater. :-) (Award given.)

I've been putting this off forever. I have no talent, tried this off a regular lie, couldn't do it, too high and far to catch, gave up, tried it on a slope, way easier. Need to work on the flop shot, add that to a long list of to dos.

You also need to work on filming horizontally :)

LOL, lazy. 

On the miscues, I noticed I was running before the swing completed, which resulted in some thin shots. Plus you'll see I do a stutter step, back foot steps back before going forward, lose a fraction of a second there, you'll see that stutter step in sports like tennis.

Where did the award icon go?

It's now a challenge. You can find it on the left under your avatar and basic info, above the clubs you belong to. It's also in your profile under "Awards."

Are you allowed to hit the flop, then bounce it off the club and catch it?

No. Flop it, catch it. It's pretty easy to do for a +1. Should take you one or two tries.

So if you can clear that netting off a mat, I'm guessing you can probably catch it if there were room.
