The other day I took a lesson (yes even mid single handicapers take lessons) in chipping.
With my previous set (MP-57) I used the 8i mostly ...... although I know many lowcappers prefer to use their GW or PW for this. My pro agrees on the 8i by telling me that chip is actually short for chip and run ..... so with an 8i it is about 50% through the air and 50% roll.
My current set has really strong lofts, so I went for a 9i for my chips.
What do you use and why ?
