    Mainly my wedges and 9i, wedges go 50, 9i, PW, SW, 60.

    Can normally manage some form of shot out of the combination!

    50 degree wedge is my 'go to' club. Used to be 52 but I have played around a lot with what's in the bag this year.

    Generally though I will use anything up to a 6 iron.

    When I got back into golf I had five lessons at Lindrick, home of the Ryder cup 57 I think. Anyway Luke gave me a lesson on chipping with differant clubs from 7i - 56 deg. in essence he put a hoop down about 10 yds away. When he set it up I thought I had to get the ball to stay in the hoop. Nope, the lesson was to get the ball to bounce in the hoop and see where it finishes. The differance in the run on from the differant clubs was unreal. Important to know when you do not have much room to play with. It was an excellent lesson in showing how balls can run out. In that sense I have used all clubs from 7 iron to chip/putt to a 48. Tend not to go above that coz I can end up knobbing it.
    Funnily enough a PP said at the weekend my short game inc putting is a single handicappers. Playing off 21 it must mean my long game is off 28 🙁

    Have got a 37° chipper (lofted putter type) that I used to use but since changing my irons I now use anything from 7i - SW depending on what obstacle I need to negotiate (bunkers, green-banks etc) but if I had to pick one specific iron it'll be the 8...

    I bought myself a chipper but was still crap so that's now in my cupboard and I've been experimenting on the practice green I have sort of found a method that I feel comfortable with using 7 iron up to 56 wedge

    no doubt it'll all go tits up tomorrow when I try it out for real on my works golf day.

    I use maths. To me a 9 iron is 50% carry 50% roll out. 7 iron 35% carry 65% roll out. Etc. adjust for rough and lack of spin.

    7 iron chip & run - providing lie and line suitable is my go to. BUT a nice 60 degree lob shot always seems more impressive

    Yep, can't beat a good flop-shot, massive air and drop it rite on the button, one of my most frequently used shots and I've lost count of the amount of times I've slam-dunked one, had one t'other day, mid week medal, 2nd green, 2nd shot landed right of green, sand-wedged a floppy up over the bank, it didn't even touch the green stuff, just dropped rite in the cup for a 3 net 2, get in, shame the rest of the round was mediocre to say the least...

    54 degree wedge for me, very rare I use my lob wedge or 50 for anything other than sand and full shots. Did try the whole 8 iron chip and run thing a few times months ago but just wasn't a fan.
