I always get stuck on the fringe.
If I chip nearer to the hole it will go way pass the hole, so how?
Putting is not ideal too.

I do a putt chip. I am sure you know. Using a wedge or PW and swing it like a putter. It work for me but be aware of the grass direction of the fringe. If it grow away from the green, be extra careful ..

If fringe is not severely elevated as compared to where the ball is, I will use 52 wedge and land it on the fringe and let it roll towards the hole. If the hole is further away, I will use a lower lofted club to execute the same shot.I can use up to 8i.

A hybrid works well.

Jon, what if on a normal fairway, where you can't get the bounce under the ball?

Probably need to practise a lot more to get consistent checks. Too difficult for me. I just bump n run the ball. 52* if more green to run, 56* if less. For a period (more than 6 months), I carry only a 56* so that I can get use to what it does when swing differently for different trajectories. Quite a good learning experience for me personally.

I am not sure if its the right way, pls comment if it is...

I would do it like a bump n run (with ball slightly on the right foot and more body weight on left leg) but to make it check, i will need adjust the club (56/60) to be slight open in club face and with a clean shot to the ball.

A poor putt is better than a lousy chip. Smile

Unless the fringe/green is not up hill, chip or bump is not that consistent for me.

Just checking, the 8 m chip, how much is the green??

Is it 1m of green and 7m of fairway/fringe?

bro ... wonder why you mention that putting is not ideal in this scenario? Is the fringe very raised? If deep rough I understand, but if in fairway, I would have thought using a putter would be the most reliable method?

Since is 50/50 i think 56 of 60 wedge should be good enough, assuming it is level...

need to know how much your ball will usually roll for such distance and choose a landing spot... it could be just on the green or on the fringe and the ball should roll towards the hole.

I may just putt it and hope for the best.

I don't have enough confidence for those short ones.

Take a 54 or 56... depending on which you have in your bag...
Just pitch it normally but instead of doing a sweeping motion (common pitching action)... Hit down on the ball (like doing a punch)...

The Ball will pop up and check on the green

When I try that, I either duff or skull the ball. Whichever the case, I curse myself for trying to be cute with the game and wish that I had taken out the flat stick instead.
