Wilson Harmonized Chipper


Recommended Posts

I had so much fun with this chipper today!  It's MUCH easier to game than the square strike wedge and it has given me some new life around the greens.  It's weighed perfect and you basically use a putting stroke ( which was harder for me with the square strike) and it's amazing how easy it is to chip with.   I will write up a good little review as time progresses for you folks needing help around the greens.  First impression was extremely impressive!

Gotta say it's also better looking than that other green thing 😉

My wife has a chipper and loves it! Almost too much - she likes to use it in places where I think she'd do better with a wedge (but who am I to say? she's the boss! 😜)

Curious to hear how it works for you from fairway, light rough, deep rough, etc.

Round #2 with the chipper:

It took me a bunch of practice with the Square Strike Wedge to become proficient with it. It's 45 degrees and some of the longer shots required you to put in some time around the chipping green.  The Wilson chipper is 32 degrees and is a breeze to chip up to a spot on the green and allow it to run out to the flag. My golfing buddy noticed the excellent results I was getting and ask to hit a shot with it. Right off the cuff from 20 yards off the green he chipped to a three foot circle.  His eyes lit up like a June Bug in a Bass pond. I had different length shots today and had great success with each one. I even had a shot out of a greenside bunker that I punched out right pass the hole.  It was a deep bunker however I had a good uphill lie.  The ball come out high and had some bite once it landed.   My buddy who had tried it earlier, asked me where I bought it.  I sent him a link to Amazon where he could check out all the reviews and decide if he was going to purchase one.  Heck for $49.00 bucks and the opportunity to remove some stress from your game, it's well worth it!  My chipper was hot and my putter was cold.  I missed several short putts and still shot 85. I'll take some good pics a bit later and report back after my round is over tomorrow.  Tired now and it's time to slam down a cold prune juice!

See you’re happy w the Chipper. I’m thinkin’ it’s the Prune Juice that makes this all happen [emoji106]

I had a chipper when I first started playing but I got used to using an 8 iron just as well. It’s what you feel comfortable with I guess.

Different strokes for different folks. 👍   This chipper's loft is similar to an 8 iron and I like the big ole arse on the bottom.  More bounce per ounce. 😉

Chippers are one of the weirdly divisive clubs in golf.  Personally I'm all in favor of whatever makes someone happy is what they need.  I may try one some day just to see if it's anything game changing.  If not, it won't be like paying for a PXG anything to see if it works better.

Since Thursday was my last round and it was a team scramble format, I didn't have but a couple opportunities to showcase my new toy.  As you all are aware you don't miss many greens when you have four people hitting the same shot. Anyways one of the rare misses we did have I chipped in for a birdie!  I kissed the butt of my chipper and told my playing partners to get some of that! 💣

The bottom of my chipper is showing a little wear,

IMG_1120.JPG

For $49.00 bucks it doesn’t bother me. Heck it’ll make a nice little punch out of the woods weapon.

I added a jumbo grip which feels better in m big ole hands . It’s a fun club as I have saved quite a few strokes to date. It’s not bulletproof as I have skulled a few here and there. Very few chunks thus far.

The rest of my bag and I’m patriotic 100% !

More to come with a video when this sticky weather gives me a break! 🥵

You're right buddy. I tried it in a greenside bunker and noticed it right away.

I saw my Buddy’s putter do the same thing. Doesn’t alter performance.

So I don't regularly carry a chipper but I like to experiment and occasionally bait my more arrogant friends into a chipping contest or two and so I will carry one in my bag for that.

 I do have several chippers that I have either built (component) and/or acquired over the years. I have both you reference. The square strike is interesting imo. At least for me. Its very upright and as you say about 45 deg. I like to tinker and practice with them very much. I bought a 100 gram back weight from Golf Works (the cheap lead ones that are four putters / less than $5 and inserted it under a new Lamkin Wedge grip (the one that is about an inch or two longer than regular grips). That modified square strike wedge is amazing right off the first cut of the green. The area that looks like you should go ahead and putt but you know there is that one piece of turf that will alter the ball if you do putt. That is where that thing is gold. It puts just right amount of force on the ball to roll through that part of the fringe if you do the putting stroke. And its very good for chipping a little further back imo. Where I struggle even though it has more loft than most of my chippers is the ones in which I have to get a little height. I get the right height but the ball bites and does not release predictable (sometimes it rolls out too far and sometimes its like I hit a lob wedge). That is my experience with the Square Strike. I much prefer the 35 deg loft range for chippers as I can play the roll out I prefer. The Wilson is a good little one to begin with. I would just change the grip that comes on them. But its consistent and  IMO does what chippers are designed to do.

There are many folks who turn their nose up at chippers because they figure they either have the skill or will acquire the skill without the help of a gimmicky club.  I just grin while raking in those skins during our weekly game.  For me the chippers with the big butts take away my fear of the yips.  It's a mental thing for me and with the skills I acquire with practice, leads to more and more confidence.  The problem I see with chippers and new owners is they think it's an instant fix right from the get go.  They chunk or skull a few and think this this frigging thing is no better than any iron in my bag.  You have to work with it folks.  It's not an instant cure .   Glad to see you have gained success with your chippers and that weight thing with the square strike sounds like a solid plan!

Surprisingly it does better than I 'd imagined. I had read one of the reviews prior to purchase about how one of the reviewers was talking about how well it worked out of the sand.  Well with the amount of loft it has I was thinking this person was liquored up on stump juice.   I decided to give it a go the first time I hit a good sized cat box and low and behold the ball popped out like a champ.  I haven't tried it on a downhill lie however on flat and especially uphill lies it gets it done.
