    I thought this was a basketball thread by the title. I have tried, but usually its a skulled shot, so not readily in my arsenal.

    Negative. I've hit it messing around but I'm more likely to blade it into oblivion than I am to pull it off successfully during a round. I'll still try once in a while, but only when scoring doesn't matter.

    Gotta have it. 9/10 misses for me are short-sides or otherwise in the worst possible place.

    I can hit it, but I try to only use it if I absolutely have to. Too much margin for error.

    I will say having the right equipment helps alot with the shot. While you theoretically can hit it with any wedge, for me a wide sole with little bounce is much easier for me than something with a high bounce with heel relief like the vokey d grind.

    This reminds me of something...........


    I need to practice my short game
    Driver makes ball go far - Details to come
    3 Wood makes ball go far, but a tad higher than above - Details to come
    H85 Hybrid makes ball go far, but a tad higher than above - Details to come
    Irons buttery smooth soft & sweet - Details to come
    Wedges that spin and can get up and down out of a trash can - Details to come
    Putter that drops bombs - Details to come


    Put the tee in the ground and let's see what goes down.

    Oh yes! One of my favorite shots to pull off. Especially when the lie is good ... open that face & nearly hit myself with the ball it comes straight up so fast.

    I have it and use it quite a bit. Small greens I play on means there is quite often very little room to allow for much, if any, roll out.

    I have it and use it because I am not a GIR finding machine... So usually quite often using it on 60* wedge. I wish I could figure out bump and runs and the chipping with iron is an interesting technique.

    Given the right lie, I like to play it. So much so that my next wedge fitting is going to feature more of it.

    I use to be solid at it. Now after a few missques I need to get that shot back in my bag through practice.
