I just tought it would look cooler if it goes farther than the pin and roll it back afterward, but maybe I am wrong.

Anyway, since I can't put any backspin on any shot yet, I simply try to judge the correct swing speed for the distance left if it less than 60 yards.

FYP :)

No spin for me here in Ireland.... I think I remember playing on a hard green once....a long time ago :-D

Depending on the approach, it's a 54*( if needed to get it airbourn) with roll out, or a bump and run with a less lofted club if there's a clear path to the pin.

I think the poll left out my most frequent options: The Scull The Blade The Hosel and The Chunk I find that the Scull tends to get me accidentally on the green more often regardless of what I TRY to attempt as follows: [LIST] [*] Medium amount of room to release:  a 30 yard pitching swing with my SW but close the face slightly more to get the extra yards, [*] Stop it or spin it back or over something:  a good LW flop - love that shot [*] Lots of green to roll it out:  been practicing chips to various yards lately with great success so that's likely my next set of options if I have room for roll out [/LIST] I'm also getting nicely practiced on "The Stupid Decelerating Downswing" - it's a great way to hit a 50 yard chip shot only 20 feet

I am profienct in all of those too What's the difference between the skull and blade though? Isn't it the same?

I find that the Scull tends to get me accidentally on the green more often regardless of what I TRY to attempt as follows:

Medium amount of room to release:  a 30 yard pitching swing with my SW but close the face slightly more to get the extra yards,

Stop it or spin it back or over something:  a good LW flop - love that shot

Lots of green to roll it out:  been practicing chips to various yards lately with great success so that's likely my next set of options if I have room for roll out

I'm also getting nicely practiced on "The Stupid Decelerating Downswing" - it's a great way to hit a 50 yard chip shot only 20 feet

I am profienct in all of those too

As an expert in skulls and blades, I can say that the main difference is that the skull involves a lot of expletives while a blade does not. :smartass:

Ahh. Now I know why I don't curse on the course. All of my misses are fat shots.

These are my kind of shots and the best part of my game. If I'm on a course where I might see around this distance a lot, I'll have my 64 with me and 50 yards is about 90% with it. Otherwise it's a half swing with the 60 or a low spinner with the 56

That's pretty much it, not much to add.  Also, on a good skull, more of my hand goes numb - a REALLY good sign of proper execution.

(I wonder if there's a matrix of all the hits, and which are subcategories of the others, example, the "Duff" is really very general and can be broken down to more specific hits.  as goes for the breakdowns of the Miss, Whiff, Undercut, Flail, and the dreaded Admiral Nelson)
