Golf chippers are the perfect solution for any golfer who is unable to take full advantage around the greens by having trouble with their current wedge game or just simply suffering severely the chipping yips. The chipper was designed to make all the troubles of a simple bump and run vanish into thin air with a club designed as a merger of both a putter and wedge. Here at OnlineGolf we proudly offer the option for golfer’s to add one of these handy pieces of equipment into their selection as we stock chippers from brands such as Rife and Benross.
The chipper is an intelligent invention to provide a golfer with an alternative and more effective method of bumping and running the ball into close proximity of the flagstick. The chipper consists of a bright merge of both a wedge design and putter design. Chippers feature a steel shaft, like what a putter and the majority of wedges do, but does come fitted with a head combined of a large mallet putter style with a face set at around 37 degrees of loft. This is a similar loft to the average 7 iron. The reasoning for this is so a golfer can simply perform a second nature putting stroke and let the lofted, cavity backed but also mallet style head lift the ball from the turf and execute a dazzling bump and run pitching shot. This is perfect for someone who struggles delivering a clean connection and either chunks, thins or even shanks their usual wedge. Golfers also do not have to worry as these marvellous assisting creations are a fully legal piece of equipment allowed to be used in anyone’s golf bag, presuming they are fitted with a normal grip, not of a straight putter style and also the chipper head is not double sided.
A chipper golf club is often seen as a beginner’s wedge due to its ease of use and forgiving output. Golfers who are new to the game or working on building up their confidence tend to opt for golf chippers because they can use them around the fairway and green with ease, providing height and distance.
Technically, golf chippers are legal for use in games. The United States Golf Association (or the USGA), states that golf chippers are legal during tournaments so long as they aren’t modified with a putter grip, or they are two-sided chippers. Many professional and confident golfers don’t use chippers, but those just starting out or with high handicaps find them very easy to use as a substitute for their wedge.
