on the short game video, he said mostly used 60 degree wedge for chipping.

The callaway website and youtube have snippets of those videos

Do you want to follow his setup/playing style?

Simple case of miscommunication ... question posed seems to be asking about what wedges Lefty carries or uses!?
I think the question was more about whats in the bag, but "used by Phi Mickelson for chipping and 50m?" confused Duval into thinking what club Lefty actually uses for those shots; therefore, bringing the lie and pin position (important factors in club selection) into play!
Much ado about nothing Beer

hi all, sorry for the confusion. i was asking what wedges he is using during the video demo clips he show in you-tube. it gives him a good spin of the ball which is very nice... and i believe its the 60 degree then.

it's in the technique lor Laughing

e.g. he deloft the club on impact with his forward press & hold. actually it would be less than 60 deg on impact.

Wedges
Picking and Using the Right One

The combination of wedges you use is your best chance to dial in your set for the course you're going to play. I have a pitching wedge, a gap wedge, a sand wedge and two lob wedges--a 60-degree and a 64-degree.

Why do I have two lob wedges? Because they're each great for different shots. The 60-degree has 10 degrees of bounce, which makes it good for standard shots from greenside bunkers or rough and when the ground is spongy. The bounce helps guide the club for solid contact.

The 64-degree wedge has a lot less bounce--6 degrees--which is perfect for sliding the leading edge under the ball from tight, firm lies. I used it a lot on the tight Kikuyu at Riviera to win the Northern Trust (L.A.) Open earlier this year, and it's an important club for me at Augusta.

A super-high-lofted club can be nerve-racking for the average player to hit, but it doesn't have to be. The trick is to give the grooves on the face enough time to grip the ball and send it upward and forward.

To do that, make a controlled, rhythmic swing. Don't give it a little extra burst of power through impact, like you might with a driver. If you do that, you'll cause the ball to crawl up the face, and the club will go right under and pop it up.
