Flop shot at 24,000 Frames Per Second

Real interesting video from 3Jack Top-50 Instructor, Kelvin Miyihara, utlizing his Phantom Camera.


As was noted by Jeff Martin, this was struct off a mat and from the face on angle, the ball is actually elevated in the air before it is struck, due the clubhead hitting the mat first and the ball being suspended in the air.

The bird's eye view is interesting as well as it shows why we tend to hit flop shots off the toe, they angle that the clubhead comes into the ball more or less dictates that a toe hit is likely. Thus, the Edel Wedges with their grooves that go out towards the toe and the CoG moved away from the heel make a lot more sense with the design of the flop shot.
