Chipper

Is a Chipper Club a legal club? I have never seen it used by the pros.

Thanks!!






Jerome,

It is a legal club considering it does not have a putter grip and must be treated as an iron. Here is the link where the USGA answers it in its Club and Ball FAQ.

Therefore, the chipper must conform to all the guidelines laid out in Appendix II Rules 1-5.

As for the pros using the chipper I had to do a little bit of research and have concluded that it has never been a popular club among the pros.

The reason why the club is not used on tour is because it was designed for the amateur or beginner because of its ease of use.

Today you will see many tour pros using either a hybrid or 6 or 7 iron when they chip so they can utilize all 14 clubs in their bags.

I hope this helps,

Bo

Testimonials:

Bo, I wanted to thank you for your help so far with my golf game. I wanted to let you know that I shot a 75 the other day in a tournament round, my best round ever. I had 32 total putts and NO 3 putts. I definitely couldn't have done that before. Thanks again and I'll be back in touch soon to get some more lessons lined up.
