Hi mrkatscurry, sorry I have deleted the post as it only applies chipping onto the green only.

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

Can you show me the duff or top when we play the next few games.....

Let me hit to 40m first, I will show you. What a Face

I'll almost always bump-and-run with my 54*SW or 50*GW.

Unless it's a red flag with hazard right before the green, then I'll try a flop shot with my LW.

I am always amazed with players that can hit a low pitch shots and the ball will check. As if it has ABS.

Haha... very costly to practice on course.... but will try to practice off course...

To be honest, my putting sucks on the green, let alone off the green...


Thanks bro!

Chipping ratio on the green.

SW - 1:1
AW - 1:2
PW - 1:3
9i - 1:4
8i - 1:5
7i - 1:6

Note : For Chipping on the green not pitching

This is the carry to roll ratios right? There was this formula about this right? 12 or 13 minus club number (eg. 7 iron) : 1 or something like that.

It's called the Rule of 12. You can google it for Youtube videos

Mostly always a 53 wedge w a half swing slightly close the club face fr me on a bump and run to the white & blue pin position. Wink
If its red pin position with bunker infrt, will open up the club face fr a flop shot. Cool
Actually, they re many type of play n approach individually. We cant say his will works fr u or mine will works fr them. Try n error during yr social game ll b best. Very Happy

1. If no hazard in front, bump and run with 9i or 8i. Much less risky shot, even if top....still can roll until tap in distance. Slinger called this "la sap par"

2. If water or bunker in front, u definitely need to float it over. I will use a fishy 59 with ball position fwd. Just turn and turn thru the shot. Commit is the key to this type of shot. If u half hearted....scared u will over hit, chances are u will duff cos u decelerate.......some guys here will swear by the hinge and hold method

40m shot to the pin? Definately my 58:

1. Blade it into the bunker behind the green.
2. Also using the 58, hit it fat in the bunker, moving it forward a tiny bit and covering the ball and yourself with sand.
3. Hit it correctly, landing gently on the opposite side of the green to the pin.
4. Three putt and procede to the next hole.

Easy!

Actually, I might putt if the fairway is well maintained.

so many lost balls from flying the short shots...

2 year ago, I will use my PW, regardless of whether enuf green to the flag.

40m? no way for me. Unless the fairway is 1m and green is 39m

Actually it's really come to different situation. May use putter, 59/54 deg or maybe 9/8/PW or even hybrid, there's not right or wrong or you must do this and that in golf, as long as the ball landed in the hole.
