Unless I'm in the really deep cabbage and/or extremely short sided, usually the GW (52°) or PW.

I think it also depends on the ball you're using. A modern tour ball, and the 60 is a pretty common go to. This is not just because better players like the 60, and a tour ball, but because the modern ball will come off the club lower and with different spin, so the 60 matches up well. A distance ball reacts very differently, so less loft may be the better choice, and that also works out well for someone not versed in hitting the 60 cleanly every time. So like a 54 and a distance ball, which is my choice as winter rolls around...

For me the workhorse is my 54° wedge. If I am extremely short sided I may switch to the 58°. If there is a whole lot of green to the pin, on rare occasions, I will go with my GW from my set at 50°,

I wore the grip out on my Vokey SM5 60 degree this summer. that gets the call from about 50 yards in and especially around the green. im getting to the point where i will even grab it when the ball is on the fringe or just off.

I did start adjust the wedge i use if i have an uphill lie

56 degree SM6 S grind most of the time/60 degree in same configuration otherwise.  Something that needs to get up and rolling along the ground, using my 4 hybrid more and more for some shots.

My go to: Ping Glide 2.0 54 deg 12 bounce. Not exactly a common degree for getting up and down (this poll may show otherwise) but I feel the most confident as I can make the ball come out low, medium or high with ease and typically generate enough spin to provide a decent amount of control.

BS, use the club that fits the lie and the roll out, even if it means walking back to the cart.

Depends on the ball. Until the version before last prov1x I was 54/58, now back to 55/60 again with the prov1. Basically want it down with minimal spin which could be any club 8i to LW but often LW. Pitching round the green and bunkers the lob wedge gets more use. Three holes I regularly play the safe iron shot is short, to an up-hill green so the 55 always comes out to hit a checking running chip but generally find myself using the 60.

I imagine playing in the USA compared to the UK this club maybe more different due to conditions and grass type etc

Myself I use my 54 Sm6 80% but it’s really lie and condition dependant, if I have green space then I can hit it low with some nice check after one bounce and release ball to the hole that’s my go to club and shot &#4322380;&#4322299; 60 for tight pins and fluffy lies

I don't have a favorite wedge.  It completely depends on the shot.  If I'm off the green and I'm riding in a cart and can't see my lie, I grab 3 wedges (50, 54, and 58) and my putter.  Then I look at my lie, then choose a landing spot on a flat spot on the green as close to fringe as possible, then choose a club.  I try to get the ball rolling as soon as possible.  So I choose the least lofted club possible for the shot.

In the words of Lee Corso, "Not so fast, my friend!"  You said "everyone", and I'm part of "everyone"!

I'm a Rule of 12 guy for about 30 years now; I use anything from a 4 hybrid to a 54* wedge, based on the formula.  I find one swing with multiple clubs is a LOT easier way to get up and down than inventing different swings with the same club.

My choice is anything from hybrid to SW depending on distance.  Getting the ball started as soon as possible rolling on the green just a few feet from the fringe is why and is easier than flighting/carrying a wedge.

Same here.  The least loft possible to get the job done.  Even if that means bump and run with a seven iron.  Or a chip with a hybrid.  With my skill set, the sooner the ball is on the ground the less likely things are to go horribly wrong.  

But perhaps more in the spirit of the question, my 50* PW gets the lion's share of the green side work.

I like hearing those who use the least lofted club that gets the job done, especially the higher handicap golfers. That is my rule of thumb, get the ball rolling as soon as possible. I have a friend who is a high handicap golfer who uses his 58 degree wedge even if he his one foot into the rough with 30 ft of green to work with. I think the term chili dip was coined from his chipping skills.

Yep, use my 53 for most, will use the 48 for more uphill lies.

I am surprised so many use so much loft around the green, unless short sided.  Short game is all what makes you comfortable.

Surprised to see how many people have a specific club or two.  It all depends on lie, carry, roll, trajectory, green slope and condition, etc.  Need to determine conditions, then shot, then that will determine club options for that specific situation.  it seems like you are working backwards by picking clubs first.

My teaching pro buddy says you want to hit shots around the green that you can picture the flight of the ball and how it reacts when it lands and rolls out. Ideally you'd have a good mental image of how all your various clubs fly and react on shots of various lengths in various situations. Then you're all set for maximum choice, maximum flexibility, maximum ability to adapt to the exact circumstance.

For may part, I don't practice those shots nearly enough to have a clear idea of how high and far a LW, SW, GW, PW, 9-iron, 8-iron and 7-iron are each going to fly through the air on a given shot. Must less how they'll stop or release once on the green. So I spend most of my practice time on one club (SW) and can usually visualize shots with that club pretty well.

For my LW and GW the flight is similar to SW and the release is just a bit less (LW) or a good bit more (GW). Once it gets down to PW or an iron that's a shot I rarely practice and may only hit once per round. So unless it's a bog-simple situation I just stick to the wedges that I'm able to visualize and I'd rather be stuck with a small repertoire of shots that have a high degree of confidence than to make up something untested on the spot. Does that make sense?

Any real distance or contours and it's the 58 that comes out, if it's flat then 9 or a PW, i know the odds favour less loft, but i just feel comfortable with the 58 and have less confidence in terms of judging run out.

A guy i used to play with would only ever use his putter for almost anything within 20 yards of the green, except bunkers or deep stuff, he was in his 60s and just had that understanding of pace and was usually closer on up and downs than most!

Any real distance or contours and it's the 58 that comes out, if it's flat then 9 or a PW, i know the odds favour less loft, but i just feel comfortable with the 58 and have less confidence in terms of judging run out.

A guy i used to play with would only ever use his putter for almost anything within 20 yards of the green, except bunkers or deep stuff, he was in his 60s and just had that understanding of pace and was usually closer on up and downs than most!

I'm not quite 60 yet but if it's short grass (or even during the winter dormant Bermuda rough) I will use the putter every time up to maybe 10-15 feet off the green. The only exception would be if there's a severely chewed up divot or something in my line. And on dry, smooth fairway length grass I'm good with the putter at even longer distances.

Especially on my UK golf vacations playing on the finer-bladed turf that's usual over there (as opposed to our grainy, coarse Bermuda grass) my putter distance can reach far out into the fairway. I've never understood the idea where from 20-30 yards out in the fairway it's better to chip the ball with a 7-iron rather than use a putter. If I can roll it for the whole 30 yards vs. fly it the first 10 yards and roll it the other 20, why bother?

Engaged in the eternal search for the elusive Swedish meatball cores...
