Whats your favorite club for a “bump n’ run”


Recommended Posts

I use my 7 iron. I’ve watched a few reviews where they suggest using a hybrid. Might give that a go this summer

I will use an m2 3hybrid (depending on conditions i change out the 3h for u510). Its so easy to use hybrid. Set in the back of ur stance, raise the heel a tad off the ground, then just make a putting stroke. N watch it roll it onto the green!

Where’s the pin and how much green do I have to work with?

Great question! Elevated green 20yards front to back, fringe is mowed super tight. Middle pin. 15-20 yards out.

8 iron, been using it forever. Tried the hybrid but couldn’t control roll well enough.

I automatically pull out the 7 iron. It's a top notch performer for B&R - why mess with success.

Im in love with using my Titliest u510 1iron.  The ball seems to trampoline off w a predictable, controlled roll. What do you guys prefer? 

I love my 8 iron for a longer one. Super controlled and just rolls so well. Can get it in the air a little as necessary or keep it real low

If I've got less than 2ft of fringe I'll likely putt it. Better speed control with that club than anything else.

With more fringe and a long run-out I'll probably go 7-8 if uphill and 9-PW if downhill.

Pin in downhill.  For non-covid rounds, pin out up hill. Let;s hope that's soon.

Elevated green I’m adding loft and probably not playing a bump a run but fly it further with spin.

15-20 yards out also isn’t a bump a run. 
 

Bump and run for me is probably no more than 5 yards off the green and have a pin that’s close to middle or back of the green. I will use anything from a wedge to a 5i. The more run out I need the less loft

In the scenario you described I would open up my 56° and play a high spinners there is no wind.

Wind? I’d hit a low one.

I am no good at judging distance on bump and run shots.

15/20 yards off the green and middle pin I’m going w PW or GW.

How fast is the green running?  What type of grass?  Am I chipping into the grain or not?

I'm with @RickyBobby_PR with the info so far.  I'm flying it further with some spin, either with my 60 or 54 judgement call depending on green speed.  If it's Bermuda and I'm into the grain, I will use a 9i.  I don't practice chipping with longer clubs and don't usually play on Bermuda.

I like using my 52 degree wedge. I can can either hit it low or open it up and hit it high.  Most times I have good control with it. My dad always tried to tell me you use a 7 or 8 iron, but I just couldn’t control those as well.

See I consider a bump and run anything where your getting 1 check and rolling. Can be from 30 yards out on an elevated green. Bump into the elevation and run onto the green....but the definition below leans towards more what you’re saying. I have always thought of bump and run from distanxe

I practice hitting a variety of green side shots with different clubs because I find it easier to make a similar stroke and change distance, loft, and spin based on the club. It's rare for me to use less loft than my 50-degree wedge though, but there have been times when I've resorted to a hybrid. All just depends on on the lie, pin position, green speed, and slope/contours.

Based on the scenario described in response to @RickyBobby_PR, I'd probably play a more lofted shot with my 58* that carries onto the green and rolls out about 5 yards.

8 iron, that's how my Dad taught me to chip when I was a youngster.  Used it a long time until I started using a sandwedge.  Will still go it a lot if I have a lot of green to cover and a tight lie...  I too will start practicing with a hybrid to see how I like it but, I don't think that tool will ever not be in the tool belt.
