One club for an entire round of golf....Which one would it be??

I would choose a 5 iron as I need a little more distance with my shorter swing. Really cool thought though, has anyone ever tried it out? Even for nine holes?

The best "known" round of golf with 1 club was John Daly. (7 iron)

No I believe it was by Roy McAvoy

I think I'd go with my Hybrid only because I can putt better with that compared to my 6 iron.

I would play my hybrid. You can hit it a decent distance off the tee, you can use it to chip, and it's better to putt with than an iron.

i would rather hit a 6 iron for shorter-than-full-swing distances...let's say 120 yard to the pin, but i'm actually ok at making little knock down shots with the utility club.

A 7-iron for me. If I really want to blast it I could probably hit it 200 yards with a big hook. I can also get out of bunkers and hit some shorter shots pretty high, too.

With a hybrid I don't see how you people are going to play any shots that require loft.

Given three clubs, I would choose a 3W, a 5-iron, and a 9-iron. I'd putt by blading the 9-iron (I often practice putting with a PW).

I have never tried one club. I have played with 3 invoving a not so friendly bet with a person who had a problem counting their strokes . I bet him $100.00 I could beat him with only 3 clubs as long as witnesses kept the scorecards. Since his claimed handicap was an 8 and he really played to about a sixteen it wasn't even close. I carried a 7 wood, 6 iron and a putter.

I would probably choose the 5 iron, the shortest club I could hit and have a chance of paring par 5s.

After disgusting, horrific round I decided I'm not up to "real golf" anymore and I played with 7 iron only (incl. putting) holes 13 through 18 on my home course. Managed to score 4 over on 6 holes, including a sand shot from a deep bunker and a chip-in on 18th for a par
it was the BEST scoring streak of my round that day !

It would be a tossup between my 5-iron, 6-iron, and 7-iron. In the end, I'd just split the difference and choose the 6-iron. It has just enough loft to chip a little, and I could hit it close to 200 yards from time to time. As for putting, it really wouldn't matter. I think you can blade just about anything if you really put your mind to it.

8 iron. When I was a kid a group of us junior members would go out once every couple of weeks and play 9 holes with just one club and I always took my 8 iron. I think the best I ever managed was a couple over and I'd never have more than about a bogey a hole averaged over 9 and it was a very long course.

Our club pro used to give all of the kids free lessons once a week and he was always going on about being able to hit all kinds of different shots with every club in the bag and the one club play was his way of getting us to be creative.

You'd be surprised just how well you can putt by blading a short iron.

I'll have to try this out!

Realistically if it is a long tough course then it would be any club that you can hit around 220-230, that is if you intend to make pars. Some do hit their 5 irons that far but for me it would have to be a Hybrid.

Two strokes of 230yds brings you on the green on the 460 yd monsters and anything less, the par 5's can be bumped and run onto in 3.
