I'm talking about chip shots within 5 yards of the green, where you are expecting some run out.
I've used the 47* pw for a few months, with some success. On a level green, it's about a 1:2 carry to roll ratio.
What club do you use for this shot?

If there's not much grass around the ball, usually about an 8-iron for an uphill chip or one that needs to run a long way. Pitching wedge if it's downhill or not so far to run out.
If there's any grass at all around the ball (other than short fringe or fairway cut) I go to the gap degree wedge. If there's a lot of grass around the ball, sand wedge.
Playing on Bermuda grass, we quickly learn that if there's any grass between clubface and back of the ball then clubhead speed is our friend. A surprisingly minor amount of sticky Bermuda will make the gentle "bump" with a straight-faced club into a crapshoot. Better to have a lofted club and get some velocity behind it, even if it means flying the ball well onto the green rather than rolling it.
My chipper. It makes chipping so easy that it almost feels like cheating.
