    This is about the same thing I do. But I'll use anything in between 7- 55* SW.

    My preference is my gap wedge but I'll use any iron below that for what I consider normal chipping depending. I'm not into using my 56 for chipping as I'll scull that one occasionally and it just fell out of favor with me and never tried to get it back.

    Put me in the 56* group. I do enjoy hooding/delofting it and simulating a bump and run.

    Why not use a less lofted club and hit a real bump and run, instead of a simulated bump and run?

    I chip with everything from a LW to a 7 iron, lob shots with any wedge, and bump and run shots with everything from a GW up to a 5 iron.

    If you use the same club for a variety of different pitches, and can do this successfully merely by delofting the club, the likelyhood is that you will develop better feel with that one club that you use.

    Compare this with a player who uses nearly every club in the bag and I know who my money would be on.

    I normally play my 56 with reasonable results, on the odd occasion when, to be more traditional, I have taken a 7 out, I find myself going way past where I intended the ball to stop. No feel!!

    My 56 is the default chipper. Been goofing around with the 49 Niblick and it could take over the chip duties.

    Typically anything from 8-iron to LW. I get into trouble when I rely too heavily on the higher lofted clubs exclusively. When I get it on the ground quickly, I fare much better. As always though, lie and pin placement dictate choice.

    I'd bet on the guy who can chip with more than one club, every time.
