Most lie, I lob it on then use 'the force' to roll ball into the hole. Cheers Jump

60* with no wind and for higher shot.
55* with wind and for lower shot.
P for a runner.

Hit down on the ball for me, no weird cutting or funny movements to get the ball to spin. I also stand close to the ball to let my body do most of the swing and also a very short follow through with almost no release for me. After that pray haha.

Depends if got bunker in front or not, if have will have to lob/flop it will aim past flag though.
If clear in front, then will low pitch it short.

If ball's on the fairway, I usually use my 52 wedge, put the ball back in my stance, use a 3/4 swing, and hold the finish with club face facing upwards, to try to get some extra spin.

If it's the rough, it depends on the lie.

But whatever the lie or pin location, first priority is always to get it on the putting surface. With luck, it'll end up closer to the pin.

If there is no water or bunker guarding the green, I would use the bump and run method ...

Hate 40m!! Nevertheless, still gota hit the shot.

If no bunker or water before green:
56deg wedge, ball at back of stance, 70% air / 30% run.

If the runway is short for landing, with bunker before green.
56deg wedge with slight open club face, ball at slightly front of stance, 90% air / 10% run.

With the above method, i seldom land near pin. Haizz.

58 degree lazy pitch shot with no wrist cock on the back swing. No shaft fwd lean. If sucessful, ball goes high and land soft with abt two mini bounces on my penta ball.

I usually hit the first one a little chunky and then leave myself with a much more manageable 10-15 meter pitch.... Beer

What?Not shoot over the pin and spin it back using the Penta?
Side note the Pentas does give me confidence to try check pitch/chip, gives the ProVs a run for the money.

i only use 54 degree for anything shorter than 75m.

so for 40m, i would take a 10 - 2 (for a clock surface) swing, and pray for the best

Usually I use my 52 for a half swing pitch shot. Cock the wrist then release to create more back spin.

Ball contact is very important for this shot, sometimes may duff or top. Embarassed

Ha yeah...it seems that way at least over my last few games. Been digging a little in the soft turf conditions and hitting a few chunkies with my wedges.

i feel that using a wedge is tough cos u need to estimate the landing area (depending on what wedge u r using) and how much the ball will roll to the pin

Using a more lofted wedge is high risk cos of the chances of duffing..


haiz... wicked shots.. haha

best is not to be at 40m! keke

If nothing in front, Id chip with 9i.

If got hazard, Id curse a bit, then try a 52* pitch. ball closer to left foot. Not my favourite shot.

It will have to be either a bump and roll for me, or a 56 deg at half swing.

Of course, if I top the ball, all bets are off... Sad
