If you could only use 2 clubs - Page 2

post #19 of 80

I think hybrid and wedge would be a good combo for me. The question would be which wedge it would be.

post #20 of 80

A 5 wood, and a sand wedge. I'd putt with my 5W.  I play a few 3 club tournaments every year. They are a lot of fun. I usually carry a 5I with those two other clubs. Depends a lot on the course make up.

3h and 6i

post #22 of 80

My initial reaction is 2h and a 52 degree wedge - I'm sure I could putt with the 19degree hybrid, and if I have to I can hood a wedge to about a 7iron.

 

Then again maybe the correct answer is to just hit the 7-iron, it's the only truly safe club in my bag

Depends greatly on the course, but I'm @Jeremie Boop, I'd go with my 4h and maybe a 56*.

Definitely would not take a driver as I can't hit it anywhere but off the tee and possible around the green for runners and whatnot. I'd go with FW over driver but I can really spank my 4h and it's way more versatile than a FW.

I putt with my 56* and 60* all the time when practicing on the chipping green. Too lazy to go get my putter to putt out. It's not that hard to putt with a wedge, just got to get used to aiming it, you basically want to blade the equator.

I used to do it quite a bit for variety, and the 5 wood/sand wedge was my choice, although I'd blade the wedge for putts up to about 30 feet.  And it's good to have a short club for tricky chips, pitches and bunker shots.

   This one.

Going to have to go with a hybrid and a wedge here as well. I'd choose my 3-hybrid for distance and putting and my 52* gap wedge to handle the short game.

Some good points being made here, I'll change my answer, gotta have a wedge, and I can putt with a 3h.

3h and SW

But can you hit one accurately from 150 yards? a2_wink.gif

3 hybrid and an 8i

3 hybrid and 9 iron 

 

Hybrid goes about 200 and 9 iron 135 so probably lacking in distance on a lot of holes but those two clubs are two of my most accurate clubs.

post #31 of 80

My original thought was 4 iron and sand wedge, but I think I would actually go with a five iron and a gap wedge.  I would putt with the five iron.

LOL  at the people who don't realise that putting with a wedge is the way to go.

LOL at people who don't have s55 irons to putt backhanded with.

Putting with a wedge is kind of hard, you have to blade it, I think gripping down on a hybrid would be better, but maybe I'm wrong.

This was supposed to say, "I'm with @Jeremie Boop". Man, I hate seeing my typos days later. SMH

I would find the distance control too maddening. Hybrid faces are really hot compared to putters. You'd be surprised at how easy it is to adjust to a wedge for putting. The only trouble I have is aiming it well but if I have to choose between hitting my line and getting my distance I'll take distance control every time. Maybe that's just me though...
