Short chipper

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok, I'm cleaning up around my schools golf shop, and I see this


It's 25 inches long so it meets club length requirements, would it meet traditional and customary rules.

Also anybody have experience with a short club?

No it isn't.

 

Grip down on an existing club. A short club is a waste. I cut down my first club, a bargain bin 7-iron, when the grip wore out and the shaft developed a rust spot. It was pointless.

Johnny Miller has experience with a short club: he played a round in a tournament once with a club belonging to one of his (then very young) kids in the bag, and was penalized strokes for it (as it was a 15th club; he didn't realize it until the end of the round).

I wouldn't suggest having a short club in the bag, even if it's one of the 14.

I like the "golf club measuring ruler"

 

in some places we just use one of those weird things called a 'ruler'

Found a 30 inch lob wedge I tried out in the hitting bay. It didn't have a grip on it so I was holding metal, and felt like I was putting Wie style. It did seem like it was going straight though. I didn't cut the clubs myself I found them and they were cut down already. As bad as I am pitching and chipping the ball I just didn't know if they give more control for such. I'll try gripping one, and get back to you all.

Kudos for even being able to get in that "Wie" position. :beer: 

 

The first time I saw her putt that way I tried to demonstrate it to my wife and I found that I couldn't bend over and keep my back that flat. No danger of me ever trying that style. :-D
