Bunker Flop shots are a night mare.  Especially ones close to the pin.  If I put the loft up high so it will go short and then try to do a 50% swing it just rolls forward about 5 feet and stops or goes back into the bunker.  Anyone know any good ways to get out of a green side bunker when the pin is less then 12 yards away?  I feel like I can't do 50% shots anymore.

Which is stupid... Pitching out of a greenside bunker should be a low percentage play.

Well you can flop as well, you just gotta practice.  I'm not a golf purist so I really don't care as long as it's challenging and fun.

Chips are handy for short bunker shots

True story. I sink more chips from bunkers than I do from the greenside. Almost to the point were if can't hit the green I'll find myself aiming for the greenside bunkers

Pitch and chips out of a greenside bunker are a joke. Shouldn't be possible with a good result - nobody would do that in real life. The flop shot mechanic is comparable to an explosion shot. This should be the only viable shot option out of greenside bunkers. HB should patch this.
