I think majority of golfers should use the bump and run shot anytime they are around the green and the ball is sitting in the shorter grass(fairway, fringe). I think it’s also important that the golfer understands the ratio of “airtime to roll “ depending on club choice. This will make it easier for golfers to make the correct club selection for the shot.
With this concept in mind, golfers must practice picking and hitting their landing spots. If they can pick the correct landing spot and then hit that landing spot, they will gain better control of the outcome.
