    Does your club not have a LR which allows you to remove the stones in bunkers before hitting the shot?

    get some Ping clubs they will be fine on rocks and stuff like that, in fact id imagine you would do more damage to the rocks with those

    Either blade it, or hit a 5 wood. That said my sw has a big groove in the sole from a bunker at Batchworth, so i might use that.

    I played at Nuuk in Greenland a couple of weeks ago and you would have used an old club there. The course is grass in between rocks, very large rocks so there are many opportunities to end up on one.

    Re: This is gonna hurt...

    I have an old gap wedge for exactly this. Anytime I think I may ruin/damage a club I use it.

    Helps me because I don't care if it breaks so generally can focus on the shot. If I was using my new irons I would be worrying too much

    Unfortunately my old gap friend gets way more use than I would like

If they get scratched they get scratched - not too bothered what they look like as long as I can still hit with them.

    I carry a scabby ole sand-wedge for bunkers as I flat refuse to shove my decent one through a pit full of scabby sand, it'll also suffice should I ever come across a situation such as yours...
