    Fixing a chip in forged iron

    Is it possible to 'patch' or refinish a chip in a forged iron? I hit a rock under the turf and chipped my PW. It's right on the sole of the club. Any ideas appreciated.

    Thanks.

    If it's on the sole and not visible don't worry about it since it doesn't affect playability.
    Not fat anymore. Need to get better at golf now!

    Thanks, lol. I get what you mean but they are new and it bothers me I guess. If its not possible fine, but if it is and its not too pricy...

    it's tough to do it well. I did the same thing a few years back and I ended up buying a new head as mine were almost brand new.
    I got a fever. And the only prescription is more golf equipment.

    It is possible to fix, but it would cost more than a new head since you'd need to weld steel onto the chip and then get it replated.

    What you have to realize is that , you probably didn't remove any material from the club head.
    Unless there was a chunk of metal lying beside the rock , then all you did was put a deep scratch or gouge the club head .
    You could probably dress out most of the damage with a decent sheetmetal hammer , but unfortunately it would never look perfect .
    Adding metal would only change the weight of the head though the difference would be minimal , welding changes the properties of metal , and could affect the temper of the forged steel too .
    At the end of the day ... It gets dark

    Thanks for the info guys. I guess I'll have to live with it since I won't be buying a new head.
