Golf Chipper Frequently Asked Questions
What is a chipper golf club?
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.
Are chippers legal in golf?
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.
