legal if it only has 1 striking face (not those dual-ones) and has a round grip...

Oh tats a chipper ah..
my friend has it.. Initially I tot why the hell he brings 2 putter..

He like to putt outside the green..
then realise he is using 2 different putter to do that..
moving closer, I saw that putter with loft..

Never tried how it feels to play with that.

but remember when the hybrid juz came out, most pro's din use it too.....


ditto for those better cavity irons... b4 tht i think majority oso use blade nia.. but technology improvement, etc... now lots of them use semi cavity too....


if these chipper can assist some of them i nwinning majors... i believe sooner or later they will still adopt it...

Can use a hybrid club to chip.

About the same loft as a chipper and the big head inspires confidence.

Just grip down and chip.

use any other irons ( whichever club u are comfy with), grip it down, and play it like a 'putting' stroke.

i normally use either a 8 or a 5...depends on how much i wan the ball to run.

get an old 8 iron and add those lead weight behind the head (trying to find those lead weight for car wheel balancing...saw it once but cannot find it since....), re-grip to oversized grip, maybe cut down the shaft = almost same effect without the embarrassment. Razz

yes but no good players would carry them. you lose a club. but if you cannot fill up your 14 clubs, i guess that should be an easy addition.

By the way, Tiger sometimes chip with 3W

Thats okay. I usually carry 16 to 17 clubs anyway....

Joking of course...


Just the novelty of it is what is attracting me. Looks really easy to use and if i can save a stroke why not man... now, where can I get one from??? Hrmmmm

i feel it really depends on each individual, even the pro's...

remb phil M even carry 2 drivers b4.....

i think if u feel this particular club can really help u in the game and even use it many times in a game, y not?

y put in other clubs where u hardly use? (i believe some of us have clubs that we seldom or not use more then once in a game) come to think of it, why dun u put in clubs that u will use...?

i know WOG sells a PRGR chipper which i wanted to give moon last time but she refused to be seen with one. Paula Creamer doesn't use so she shouldn't was the answer...

Moon only have 12 clubs
