I'm talking about chip shots within 5 yards of the green, where you are expecting some run out.

I've used the 47* pw for a few months, with some success.  On a level green, it's about a 1:2 carry to roll ratio.

What club do you use for this shot?

Driver:  Ping G30  9* (set at 8.4*)
4 wood:  Ping G25
7 wood:  Ping G15
4, 5, hybrid:  Ping G25
6i - PW:  Mizuno MP54
Wedges:  Vokey SM4  50.12 / 54.14 / 58.06
Putter:  Odyssey 2 Ball

Titleist Pro v1x

PW as well when in the rough.
If I took the time to practice my short game, I guess maybe a 7I would be a better choice, to get the extra run out.
If I really want it to run most of the way and the ball is on the apron or fairway, I'll putt from 5yds off the green. Actually whenever I can use the putter I will.

Depends on lie. SW if not good. Usually PW (or putter) with great lie, short grass between me and the pin.

However the last week I`ve  been trying my 4 hybrid when just off the green. Putting stroke that comes out a bit hotter- great results so far without worries about he leading edge of  PW or SW just snagging the grass.

Depends on how far the run is, but typically 7i to 9i.

I work on the 1/3 air to 2/3 run theory for chips so the pin would need to be at least 10yds onto the green for a chip and run from 5yds off the green otherwise I'd pitch it.

Mood dictates for me. Anything from the 7 Iron to the SW, or the putter. If I don't feel the touch, I would more likely choose an iron or a putter but if I feel the touch I'll use the SW.

One theory- One club for all shots etc.Me? I, like other OPs, like 7 iron-SW. Depends on shot called for and what the lay of the land is. I was taught- get the ball on the green running as soon as possible. Works for me. Use the club that will do that the best. 3 wood could be the ticket on some shots.

Took a couple of chipping lessons this year, and it was a real eye opener.  I always assumed I had a poor technique but learned that my technique was fine, and that it was my choice of shot that was poor.  He taught me to pick the flattest spot between me and the hole as my landing area, and to then pick the club to get that job done, be it anything from a 7i to a lob wedge.  It was a hugely valuable lesson, and resulted in one or two shots saved per round.

I usually use my 54* wedge and play it off my back foot. If the pin is way over the over side of the green though, I usally opt for an 8 iron.

Most of the time 9iron, for really long roll 7i. Tried also a hybrid in a few situations but the ball jumped off the face, so it's harder to control for me.
