This study is aimed at revealing the effectiveness of club head variability as a result of strengthening the competence of chipping skills in golf. A total of six professional golfers, 13 amateurs golfers handicaps 3-7, and six golfers handicaps 12-16 made a try in this study. Everyone tries chipping test into holes for three categories of distance from the green golf outer circle, which is 1-1.5 meters; 2-2.5 meters; and 3-3.5 meters by using three club head types, namely: club heads commonly

Everyone tries to do a chipping test in golf that is constructed, namely: Five times three club head types three times the distance. The results of this test are processed and analyzed further by using independent ttest. The results show that the variability of the results suggests that golfers need the mastery of various club head (sand wedge and / or the like, irons-9, and irons8) usage that require adjustment to the field contours and grass conditions, where sand wedge for all levels of golfing according to their respective handicaps, where for the case in this study is the type of club head that is not appropriate to use.
