What club do you use for the "chip n run" shot?

If there's any grass at all around the ball (other than short fringe or fairway cut) I go to the gap degree wedge. If there's a lot of grass around the ball, sand wedge.
Playing on Bermuda grass, we quickly learn that if there's any grass between clubface and back of the ball then clubhead speed is our friend. A surprisingly minor amount of sticky Bermuda will make the gentle "bump" with a straight-faced club into a crapshoot. Better to have a lofted club and get some velocity behind it, even if it means flying the ball well onto the green rather than rolling it.

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?
Give a hybrid a shot
If I'm within 2-3 yards of the green I use my hybrid a lot. Give's just enough launch to get it bouncing or hopping over the rough but then its like putting.

My short game probably isn't one to be emualted though:). I just try to keep it simple with those two because I don't play enough to trust myself with more.

I have a high degree of confidence on these shots becuase I usually manage to get the ball up and down. Fanastic short game clubs those Niblicks!

I also attended a short-game clinic of his one time where the instruction and drills were all about learning to visualize the trajectory that each club creates on shots of various lengths around the green. Can't recall all the drills we used but the central idea was to visualize the ball landing on a certain spot then rolling out a certain distance. Then imagine the trajectory that matches up to that landing spot and rollout. Then choose something between 7-iron and lob wedge that will create the right trajectory.
The problem with this approach is it totally varies with distance. So you from 20 yards a 9-iron might create a certain trajectory but from 25 yards because you're swinging a bit harder it might take a 7-iron to get the same height. So you need to spend a good bit of time around the practice green hitting various distances with various clubs to get those trajectories lodged in your memory.
If you can't put in the practice time, probably best to stick to just a couple of different clubs and learn their trajectories from different distances.

If it's not a favourable lie, I won't go higher than an 8 iron, a slower swing can get caught in the **** and the ball could do anything.

Depends on how much to carry the fringe and how much roll I need to get to the pin.

I'm usually pretty good with just a SW around the greens but it sounds like some short game practice with different clubs is in order.
