What is you default club to chip with?
I will use any club from LW 60 to 9I. I try to take my hands no farther back then 730 or 8. My lob wedge at my home course will go about 10-12 paces 9 out of 10 times(greens are hard and fast a majority of the time). I add 3-4 paces per club all the way up to 9I, anything farther begins a pitch in my book. When I go to another course I take my LW and I hit about 5 chips around the green and walk it off and use that as my number for that specific day. Of course I will always adjust for downhill/uphill and anything else.
By chip, I assume we mean a running shot with lower takeaway and hands ahead followthrough. My club for chipping depends on the turf situation:
