Helping you enjoy your golf!

For me, there are two kinds of people, golfers and everyone else!

I’ve been playing golf for over 30 years now and I decided to start a blog covering topics in the world of golf that interest me and might help you.

If you are a golfer or would like to take up the game then hopefully you should find something of interest!

I’d like to try and grow cleek&JIGGER into one of the best golf blogs out there!

Why Cleek&Jigger?

Cleek and jigger are old-fashioned names for particular golf clubs. Prior to the 1930s golf clubs weren’t sold as matched sets of numbered woods and irons. They each had their own unique name such as spoon, brassie, baffy, mashie or niblick.

A cleek had a metal head that was elongated and didn’t have much loft. It was a bit like a modern long iron (1-iron or 2-iron).

A jigger was a bit like a modern chipper with a short shaft and very little loft.

As a student of the game, I thought Cleek&Jigger sounded like an interesting name for a golf blog!
