I think I am experiencing a brain fart. Ball comes to rest some 20 yards off the green, maybe 15 feet of green to work with after that. It's maybe 4 feet elevated. No other obstacles. Let's say a flat-ish green. Medium rough lie and the same stuff to up to the fringe. Decent lie in that rough. I hope I covered enough detail. I am not great at chipping that far with the sand wedge. I am so tempted to try to flop something with the sand wedge or maybe a tiny pitch because I do not want to deal with rolling through the rough with a pitching wedge so close to the top of the arc. Insufficiently loft just a bit and I will end up parking the ball before it gets to the green. Somehow, with no specific obstacles in the way, the shot options all seem so risky. I seem to be encountering this scenario a lot these days. I feel like this should not be such a difficult decision, but I just do not see what the conventional wisdom would dictate. What would you do? What am I not seeing clearly here?
