Have been thinking it might be fun to have a 3 clubs or less game with the "crew". At least for a quick 9 after work. Has anyone ever done this?

I'm thinking I'd go with my 6, GW and putter... Heck, I'd probably score better than I do with a full bag. :8)

Closest I got was a putter plus 3 irons. Took a driver, 5 hybrid and an 8 iron. Good fun but had a terrible round.

Played 9 holes from lady´s tee against my mom with my 7 iron. I think i made 4..5 over par and won (really bad son).

1st i learn that I´m really bad on half shots, 160 carry it´s my 7iron and from 100-140 yards didn´t hit any GIR. 2nd it is really important to miss green on the side where you can chip easily with that 7 iron. If not every GIR miss on the wrong side it´s a really easy double bogey.

Never a three club tournament, but have played four club several times It is fun to be able to adjust to a distance that you would usually use say a PW but you only have an 8 iron to do it. The last time I played I used a 4 wood 5 iron, 8 iron and a gap wedge. Used the 4 wood and the gap wedge to putt with. Most everyone else used a putter.

I have never done it, but I would use a 5w (or maybe a 4h depending on the course), a 6 or 7 iron and a wedge (maybe even a sand wedge if there are lots of greenside bunkers). No need for a putter: use the wood or hybrid or blade the wedge.

Yes, it's fun.  We have a 3 club night during league.   

I like carrying a 3i, 8i, and a AW, based on the host course length.  The loft of the 3i also makes a nice putter substitution for me.

    • I had a weird experience with Peacock this morning.  My YTTV isn't working well for some reason (been an issue the past few days), so I used the app.  I signed up for free Peacock, watched Torrey on my laptop but couldn't cast to the TV.  So I installed the app on my TV but when I logged in there, I could only follow the featured group.  Is anyone else watching it (not right now, just in general) on free peacock?

    • Day 115.  I had a good idea this morning -- rather than checking that I'm only getting back to "45 degrees before parallel" on the backswing, I should exaggerate a shortened backswing (not absurdly so;  I'm not chipping) .  I did ten minutes worth of my usual routine with this in mind for the rehearsals (again, slow, or at least it feels slow).  Didn't get footage because of the room setup, and it was an 8-iron not a 7-iron, but I did get some practice in doing this.
