My wife and I were outside this weekend, hanging out in the backyard with our kids. 

I thought I'd give this a try... Is it too late to get a badge?????

 

By the way, yes I know my voice sounds funny. 2 things: Firstly, I'm just getting over the flu, my head is still stuffed up. Secondly, I was pretty excited to get it on the first try.

Needed some coaching and a borrowed wedge, but I did it.

You made it look easy!   I know different.   Great job.

 

When I practice this, nah....I've tried a few times.... If I ever do it, I won't have a camera handy and if I have a camera handy, I won't be able to do it.

I actually gave this 2-3 tries recently during some pitching practice.  But it was with my 58 off a pretty tight lie, couldn't get the ball to cover less than about 15-18 yards.  I have a shitty 64* wedge my old man gave me with my hand-me down clubs, and have been thinking about having a go with that and a fluffier lie...

Guess I’d better start practicing my flop shots then. Given how I’ve been doing with recent attempts, the ball would take off so hot I wouldn’t even get a chance to catch it 😂.

Shortly after getting drilled with a skulled flop shot from our own @RFKFREAK (I'll post that video too lol), I nailed it.

Couldn't have planned it any better! :-$:-$

Dude, You made that look way too easy. 

Next time, you have to do it with a half eaten bagel in your hands.

I was going to say that I am glad no one hurt themselves in attempting this challenge on Saturday, but I had forgotten about that incident.

Good practice drill, hit pitch shots with your right hand only. Not sure I can get the speed for the head height flop shot, but I think it could be possible to do a shorter flop shot one handed and catch it. Now, I am thinking of going to buy some bagels 😉
