It seems the OP is referring to a chipping scenario - and it sounds like it isn't too awful tough. I think it is best to keep it simple as often as possible. I do 99% or more of my chipping with 2 clubs - a gap wedge and a sand wedge. And I employ the Phil Mickelson 'hinge and hold' as best I can for every chip. The only variation really is which club to use - the sand wedge if there isn't much green to work with - the gap wedge if there is.
I think getting too many clubs with too many variations of face-opening creates a nearly unlimited number of lofts / carries / runouts, etc. It is just not something the average golfer has time to get good at. I only have the 2 shots and still only have so much time to practice them. I see so many people trying a different club every time and opening the face and such - and you can tell they don't actually know what to expect out of the shot.
That being said, and back to the OP's question, sounds like a hinge and hold with a sand wedge.
