For recreational golfers who struggle with chipping with conventional clubs
If you routinely chili dip, double-hit or can’t keep the ball on the green when you chip, then this is the club to provide the proper chipping technique.
First, you need to understand what a chip is. A chip is a firm-wristed stroke that is designed to hit the ball low, carry a short distance and then run out. To successfully chip, the ball is placed back in the stance with the hands forward so your hands lead the club to impact. It is a short, firm stroke requiring NO use of the wrists. Most golfers are taught to chip with an 8-iron, 9-iron or PW depending upon how far they are from the ball.
If you look at proper chipping technique in videos, you will find that the shaft is leaned forward 7 degrees and the Hindsight chipper has this already built in along with a less lofted 9-iron. The head weight is identical to the weight of a putter.
The purpose is two-fold:
1. Promote a shorter, more controllable length
2. Make it more easier to have the hands lead the clubhead at impact
