    Practice it quite a bit...

    Use it about once or twice a month in a given round of golf. No sense risking a hosel rocket across the green when you are trying to save a Par or Bogey....Yet.

    That would be a no.

    It has happened, but so low a % shot for me it's one I typically shy away from.

    Have it, love it, but Iíve gotten away from it as of late. They say to try and play things more along the ground, but theyíre not factoring in spin really messing all that up because of course itís possible to check an 8i

    I love playing it, the only reason I have it is from finding bump and runs boring when I was younger

    It's in the bag and it only comes out when the lie and situation are perfect. Uphill lie to a short sided pin is where it'll come out usually.

    On fluffy lies or when the ball is sitting up AND itís necessary to get it close, then yes Iíll give it a go. Itís risky, sure but itís fun when you pull it off!

    I have it and I play it on occasion. Most of the time it's when I have to get over a tree and going under isn't the best shot. I changed from a low bounce LW to a mid-bounce, so now the conditions have to be a little more conducive. Before I could lob it from just about any lie.

    gawd i am so bad at the flop. really any pitch requiring a high soft trajectory. i can shank it. chunk it. blade it. toe it (which basically do the same as a shank). i still try it because the shot might require it, but i am pretty freaking bad at it.

    I can hit it but I only do when absolutely necessary, I'd much rather play a chip/pitch and run.

    I used to be much better at it. When I first started golfing it was one of the only shots I practiced. Now I donít practice it nearly as much, and only use it when faced with a short sided green side chip.
