Vardon reported in The Complete Golfer (1905) of the emergance of a new approaching club called a jigger. This club was a favourite of Gene Sarazen and Chick Evans. Invented just after the start of the 20th century, the jigger began life as a cleek, with a face laid back to make high carrying approach shots. It generally fits betewwn the mid-iron and the mashie on full shots and was found by some players to be very useful for chipping and pitch shots. Many jiggers were cut down for chipping when their owners found them too ddifficult to employ with a full swing. The shallow face made them very challenging for the less accomplished player. Stewart has been credited with making the first jigger.
"The narrow blade and heavy sole make this club very easily handled. For general fairway use and long approaches"
