"Three (3) Clubs Only" Master Thread

Agreed this is what I would do also

The last time I did this I used a 3-hybrid, 6-iron, and PW.   Shot a rather pedestrian 83.     Best shot of the day was a choked down, chippy hybrid to about 4’ on a 175 yard par-3.  Missed the

He hit a big huge push-slice. Then he hit a tree trying the heroic shot (still the left rough). Third in the bunker, fourth ran through the green - first time he was on the "right" side of the hole. Needed to chip in and failed to do so.

Ha, that's funny - I forgot he's a lefty!!  I remembered him losing it left, I can still see that ball totally and wildly gone.  A push-slice into the woods, that's indeed what it was.  I also vaguely remembered a failed heroic but couldn't recall the result -  so there was another blown shot from the rough!  Thanks for setting me straight.

I also think it was one of those tee shots where the commentator said,"Oh no, he's picked driver ..... he isn't really going with that is he? ...... don't do it Phil" or something to that effect.  I usually don't mind his high-risk antics but I was agreeing with the commentator on this one.  To fail to touch the fairway in such a clutch situation - utterly crazy.

OK I give up, which tournament was it?   I could look it up but I'd rather hear it from you - no Googling now.

Really?  The 2006 U.S. Open at Winged Foot -- fairly historic event in golf lore.  The funny thing is, everyone talks about Mickelson screwing up, but little is said about Monty.  He also finished a shot back of Ogilvy (winner).  However, he too ended with a double bogey (6), but he did it from the middle of fairway (somewhere around 170 yards iirc).

My club has a weekly 9 hole mens league where they try and change the format every week. One week coming up will be everyone only has 3 clubs in there bag. I've never done this but sounds fun. If anyone has what clubs you pick? I was thinking 3hybrid 8 or 9 iron and putter. Also thought about putting with hybrid and adding a 5 or 6 iron maybe. Any recommendations?

I like the idea of putting with the hybrid, but for the other clubs I would go with a 6 or 7 and your favorite wedge.

We also do this twice per season, in two versions 3 or 3+Putter ......

3 clubs, my best score came from Hybrid, 6 iron, 9 iron and using the hybrid for putting aswell.

3+Putter ..... Driver, 5 iron, 9 iron + Putter

in college we played with 4 clubs and a putter from the senior/white tees at our home course every other week or so during the season.  It was great fun and our scores were pretty damn good actually, I shot 73 one day for instance.

I used 3, 7, 9, sand wedge most of the time.  It was only 6100 yards so none of us really needed anything more than a 3 iron.

A friend and I played this morning with each of us bringing 4 clubs and sharing.  I brought putter, 9i 7i and a hybrid.  He brought a putter, gap wedge, 5i, and 3i.  We found we could skip the 9i and the hybird.

I think your club selection really depeneds on the course and your length.  If you are playing a links like course I wouldn't consider bringing a wedge.  For most circumstances I'd go with my 21deg hybrid (210 club), 8 iron (150 club) and a putter.

4 Hybrid - straight and long, but can create shots and play it short if I need to.

8 Iron - I hit it better than any other iron, and again, I can play it short

putter - I am no good at using the 4h as a putter...and I tried a few times.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
