One Club for an Entire Round of Golf… Which One Would It Be??

I played in a scramble this year where they made you play certain holes with specific clubs. It was a lot of fun but very difficult. One hole we had to use our driver - very hard to put with a 460* titanium head.
The hole I liked best was each golfer could pick one club to play the hole with. We tried to be smart and have one guy use driver, one guy 5 iron, one guy wedge and one use a putter. It was a good plan until the idiot (me) with the driver pull hooked one on a dogleg right. ha ha.
Now if I had to play with one club it would be a 5 iron!

I'd never want to do this and waste my greens fee, however if I ever really had this I'd use my putter and play punch shots all day and stay out of any bunkers.

Why would a 5 handicaper choose a putter?

I would choose a driver just for the heck of it. It would be soo much fun seeing my playing partner trying to get out of a bunker with a driver when it takes him 4 to get out with a lob wedge. He is a 12 handicap and there is the same bunker that he hates.

It would be soo much fun attempting the 148 yard par 3, 15th with a driver. The green is only 10 yards wide and is surrounded by water. I may have to go out onto that hole one day and try the high half cut with a driver.

Now thats fun!!!!

Although if it was in competitive i would choose a bladed 8 iron as it is easier to de-loft the club rather than add loft to it.

i've used a 7 iron on several occasions. it is amazing what you can do when using just one club. my best score was an 82, and for a par 70, i was happy with that. makes you wonder why we need 14 clubs. in the spring our league night members will play with one club sometimes. it's a lot of fun.

last summer i played in a 4 person scramble. each player can bring one club only, and can not share the other player's club. we had 20 teams, and it was a blast!!

I would have to go with my 7 iron since I could hit it far enough and control the height as well.
I last 3 club tourney I went with 5 wood - 7 iron & putter.
The 7 iron was used quite often

EVEN FOR THE GREENS!

My choice whould be a 6 Iron!

Played a round with just a 7i. Boring golf. Shot only a few strokes above my average...🤓

back in  the day,,,,,(and that day was a long time ago), I would take a 5 iron and putter. I did get near the 200 yd marker a few times, but that record has long expired, I am lucky to get over 130 with a 6.

Longest par 4 at my course it´s 410. Longest par 3 200. Longest par 5 535.
I need 200 yards in order to have a chance in every hole to hit GIR.
I can hit upward on a iron and hook it for max carry an roll, i think i can cover that 200 yards with a 7 iron.

    • It's speculation that doesn't actually matter. GOAT is not the longest driver or we'd already be throwing Cameron Champ's or Jamie Sadlowski's names in the discussion. He hit it about 267 or so when he was 40-43. Tiger hits it about 297 at the age of 43 with a fused back. And I couldn't care less… if Tiger hit it 350 or 250, he won a major this year. 15 >> 18, 81 >>> 72. That's 90% of the GOAT discussion for me. Y'all can make up whatever reasons you want, but own them, and accept that you're speculating on some of them.
    • How far would golf's legends drive the ball using modern equipment? At the 2016 Ryder Cup, the 6-foot-5 Thomas Pieters belted a drive 324...   An interesting article on how players way back would have driven the ball with today's ball and equipment.  I didn't realize that Jack had driven the ball 341 yards in a longest drive competition when he was 18.  
    • Oy. I don't give a shit about two top ten finishes in a decade. Nor am I comparing Jack to Vijay Singh, a guy whose putting stroke has been AWOL since roughly 2011. He wasn't. That's easily refuted. As for straighter you're not comparing like to like - you don't know what the fairway widths were, how far the ball bounced, etc. But we do KNOW that Tiger was longer than Jack. Tiger at 43 with a fused back is longer than Jack was when Jack was 40, 41, 42, or 43. Tiger @ 43: 297.8 Jack @ 40: 269.0 Jack @ 41: 264.3 Jack @ 42: 264.6 Jack @ 43: 266.1 Tiger was almost 30 yards longer at 43 than Jack was at 40, 41, 42, or 43. Now, several posts in, you're changing that up to say that, given modern equipment or whatever, Jack would probably have been as long as Tiger. But that's not what you said. Uhhhhh… He didn't do that. Neither did I. No they aren't. Furthermore, if all Tiger had to do was hit the ball 266 yards, he could probably hit 80% of the fairways. Fairways that are likely narrower, etc. So you lost the distance one, and if you want to measure "accuracy" by "fairway hit percentage" I again will point out you're not comparing like to like. They aren't playing the same golf courses, the same fairways, or hitting it the same distances. Furthermore, and more importantly, I don't care about stats like this when determining who the GOAT is. If you do, that's cool, but what I care about is wins, dominance, scoring averages, that sort of thing. I don't care who had a better short game (Tiger by far), who was a better putter (tie?), who hit a better 7-iron (almost surely Tiger), or whatever. I care about Ws. So not only are you provably wrong on distance, possibly off-base on accuracy, but you're arguing about things that most people don't even care about. Nobody considers Calvin Peete in the GOAT discussion because of how accurate he was off the tee. Huh? No. 🤦‍♂️ Uhhh, according to Jack, it was 118 MPH. I call bullshit on that. Oy.

    • I’ve never been one to sit on my donkey for too long. The past four and half decades have pretty much been work for me , as so I know, for many others as well.  Developing my golf game will (not) dominate my new found free time. It will though give me a new avenue of pursuits that I hope will keep my mind expanding. Thanks for the input and reply. 
    • That sort of extrapolation is not possible.  You are talking that he would be hitting the golf ball further than the average long drive competitor. I am not buying it. He would be one of the longer hitters on tour. Jack is not the physical freak like Dustin Johnson. I would put him probably a top 10 in distance yearly if he was in his prime competing today.
