Roller challenge.......can you do it?

Can anyone throw a roller forward off the tee pad and have it curve around and end up somewhere behind the starting point?

Not without a hill, but I see no reason it can't be done.

I believe I could perform the shot as described. Is there a reward or is it just for "bragging right? Curious to if it's bh or fh roller. Fh roller would be easier but bh roller is possible .

I can do it FH but it's not easy. If done right I can get it to fly in the air about 300ft and come all or most of the way back. The shot has no use on any course I've played but I do it once in warmups to show off sometimes.
