Adams A3 Chipper
Yes, it’s a one trick pony, but I honestly believe that clubs like this Adams chipper could help some players score.
Case in point: The team of players my partner and I beat in the last league match had two guys who out rove us by 50 to 100 yards on every hole. On the par 4s, they often were just a pitching wedge away after the drive. And then six shots later they were in the hole.
Neither of them could effectively wield a wedge, or chip. And yet, there they were, trying to flop with a 60 degree wedge. If I had a game like that, I’d drop a wedge or a wood and put one of these into the bag. The chipper I have (and put into use when my short game falls apart) is good from 50 yards out in the fairway, from around the green, and even out of traps.
I hope neither of our opponents is reading this, in case we have to play them again later this season.
