Well, I stand corrected. I thought I had seen in the forum from many years ago where someone from WGT said you couldn't do it, maybe WGTNiv (or Nivlac as he was before he joined WGT) - I'll see if I can find it.
It's a pity the flash replays don't show the meter, I'd like to have seen how far past the ding you clicked. Some time in the past week I was playing a game on Conressional, and when my approach shot my finger twitched and I hit way early. Rather than my ball hooking (like in your first video), it merely went straight about 100yds (should have gone aroud 160-ish).
Also, remember when Congressional was added to WGT, and the invisible tree branch on hole #4 (I think). In order to avoid it off the back tees (wasn't in play off tees other than Legend tees) you had to aim into the right rough and then hit early to pull the ball left. But from what I remember the ball never turned in the air, it stayed pretty straight. That said, you only needed to miss the ding by a few millimetres, not as early as you did in your video, so maybe that made the difference. Not sure if that invisible branch ever got fixed, but I still always play my tee shot in that way.
