And your in the rough, its your second shot on a par 4, you have a clear line at the pin.... what club do you use?

No other variables like wind, elevation, temp, etc.... Just 200 yards and your in the rough

I ask because this is the club I need to buy. I have no club that will take me to the green from the rough from 200 yards out....

Thanks for the replies guys, so far its hybrid 1 and iron 1. I dont trust my long irons in the rough, but then again I dont use them in the rough very often because of the whole confidence thing.

Its interesting to see what you guys use in that situation.

good lie: 3iron hybrid (19 degree)
bad lie: 6 or 7 iron, roll it close to have a little bit of a pitch shot.

If it's a good lie, I'd probably attempt to hit my 5H, if it's a bad one, I'd probably attempt the 3H. If it's just an average lie, not great, but not extremely bad, I'd probably still go with the 5H.

Different for everybody. I would hit a 4 or 5 iron, or maybe even a 3/4 3H depending on the green. My advice for most 25 handicappers would be 3 wood or 1H.

You're probably going to get a flyer. Walk on a 5 iron (or a new 6 iron). It has the optimal head shape and size to cut through the hay while staying on line. If you can't a get a full.5 swing to the green from a flyer lie with an approximately 29 degree loft mid-iron, then there might not be club to get there - for you.

it all depends on the lie and where the pin is on the green. If it's a good lie and the pin is in the back. I will probably try to hit a 5 or 6 iron. If it a bad lie, I might hit a 7 and try to get it rolling a bit. The lie will show me what club I need to or can hit.

    • I want to see pics of those who hoard putters. @Double Mocha Man    If I have old stuff, it’s because its for my kid when he’s older. Otherwise I give stuff away or sell it. I have enough for maybe 3 sets of clubs. 
    • 94 posted rounds so far, the vast majority at one or the other of the 2 courses at my home club.  I’ll be a bit over 100 by year end.  We were lucky that Covid shutdowns didn’t have much impact on golf here, so pretty normal.

    • I don’t think I posted on here for this year and goals but I did accomplish a lot this season. My first under par round at -2. My GIR Numbers we’re consistently in double digits. Typically 12-13 per round. I had some long par streaks or better during rounds going 8-10 holes without a bogey several times. My ball striking has reached a level where I feel as though I may look at blades for the first time. My putting has been far more consistent. I have done this by learning to control distance with approach shots. I’ve learned to flight my irons better this year. I’ve utilized the 3/4 punch shot more this season than ever. I’ve dialed in my wedge game. I’ve gotten to the point where I approach greens and hit the correct quadrant and I’m not just happy with on the green anymore. I’ve switched putting grips to the claw for this season and it’s significantly improved putting.    I will set some goals next season but I’m using this as a chance to review the strides I’ve made this season as I’m pretty sure I failed to set goals formally for 2020.    
    • The last round I played we played from one up tee boxes, so like 5,500 yds, relative to par I was about 6-8 shots better than I typically am, but relative to differential it was 3 strokes better than my handicap at the time. But to be fair I also played a nearly mistake free round of golf and holed multiple 10-15 footers which isn't normal for me.
    • For the best chance at a GIR, I would have to say a 6i, maybe a 5i.
