If you could only use 2 clubs - Page 5

post #73 of 80


Well everyone is talking which two clubs they use, yesterday I put it to the test, talked my two mates to play the back nine with two clubs, use my choice 2/9 iron,was happy with my result, had 44, given the front with full set of 41. One of my mates handicap 10, used 3 hybrid and pitching wedge had 39 bettering his front by a stroke. Must admit putting was the biggest challenge. The other statistic was out of 7 fairways we all found them off the tee.

It's surprising how well you can shoot if you pick the right clubs for the right course. When I was doing it a lot, I was playing a course that you could bounce it on, so I would hit a everything from a punch 5-wood from 120, to a swing away 220.  It really didn't matter the distance.  A half-swing 5-wood from 130 was the same 3/4 swing from 180.

I disagree. Putting is a simple task. I putt almost as well with a wedge as I do with a putter. We had a one-club challenge with 6- or 5-irons and people shot even par. I made a 15 footer on the first hole with my 5I.

Yeah not tough at all to putt with a wedge.  At the lowest end of the what is difficult in golf scale.

Compared to a 270 yard drive exactly where you want it? Yeah, no comparison.

 

Although, I might hate to use my LW on the green for fear that the greens keeper might come after me.

Huh? You BLADE the ball, you don't take divots. :)

A few years ago, I put a pool cue in my golf bag before hitting the links with my golf partner. When I took my bag of clubs out of the car, my golf partner noticed the pool cue sticking out of my bag, and he asked: "what is that for?" To which I replied that's my new putter.

If I take a divot on the green, they would bury me under the bunkers. a3_biggrin.gif
