These clubs are made specifically for low, running shots played around the green (chips). Golf club chippers are usually built as a cross between a putter and a mid-iron, with a putter’s head style and length (approx. 35 inches) and a loft of 27-55° (5 through SW irons).
While few if any professionals carry chipping clubs, many amateurs rely on them. Chippers can help golfers who struggle selecting the proper clubs to use around the greens, and may also boost consistency. Leading retailers of chipping clubs include Thomas Golf (www.thomasgolf.com).
