A golfer can use any club from a bunker really. But in green side bunkers there are two clubs that are mainly used are a sandwedge and lob wedge. It really comes down to personal preference, length of shot, lie and height of bunker lip to which club is selected. Sandwedges are 54- 56 degree and lob wedges are 58-60 degree, the loft helps get the ball up in the air quickly. Wedges also have bounce, this prevents them from digging and also helps get the ball up quickly.
