Let's just say... You have put yourself 100 yards from the middle of the green... In the middle of the fairway... With light wind (in a perfect world)... And you need to stuff it to win a $5 nassau... What shot do you hit? What club? Basically... I'm putting it so it's the shot you feel most comfortable with... I'll start... I struggle with full shots with short wedges (my 52° & 58°)... My Full PW is 130, 52° 110 & 58° 90...you would think 3/4 52° would be the shot... I actually like a little chippy PW... Because I can land It like 90-95 and get a little run and still get it to check up enough to stay close to the hole.

From 100 yards in the middle of the fairway is a simple choice. I hit a 3/4 52degree Cleveland gap wedge. I love this shot and have a great feel for it. On par 5's I usually lay up to the 100 yard mark just so I can hit this shot.

If I did that, I screwed up the lay up because it's a really cruddy yardage for me. Right between a sand wedge and my 51* gap wedge. I'm gonna choke down on a gap wedge and hit it full.

100 yards is a smooth GW for me. However sometimes I do like hitting a little choked down PW. So the choked PW would be my go to in this spot

i prefer to hit full shots where possible, i find it to be more reliable yardage so i would hit my 56 deg wedge. It won't be flat out but around 85% i guess.

Low bounce 50 GW, but that's a target shot and there's a lot of variables.  Green running away, how much to work with, clean fairway or rough in front of the green.  Might be a 54 SW or a PW.

75% of time: Full 56

25% of time: Smooth 52

Ultimately depends on misc stuff like contours and firmness of green, weather conditions (temperature, wind etc), the lie and the elevation change if any (even a few yards could be the difference between 6ft and 20 ft)

Of course I will most likely screw up both shots and be 30 ft from the hole no matter what

my SW (54) is dead on at 100 yards with a comfy full swing

soft on the 50 would do it -

My half swing PW (46) is about 90 - so if the layout it good for a bit of roll, that's an option, but not preferred

in fact, I'm dumping by current SW and getting 56 today (with a bit more bounce to replace the SW) to fit between my 50 and 60 - it'll space out the yardage better.  I suspect after the fact then

56 with a firm swing or a soft 50 will do it
