What clubs to use between driver and 3 iron

Recommended Posts

tuffluck    10
I have an old school setup of a 3, 5, 7 wood followed by a 4 iron. I am gettjng new irons and wanted to get a 3 iron that i assume will be about the same distance as my 7 wood. What could i use in place of the 5 wood? I may just keep the 5 wood, but idike to know what the alternatives are just so i can hit them and find out if i like them better. Fwiw, i hit my 5 wood about 215.

I carry a 3 and 5 wood, then a 3 and 4 hybrid... this gives me a gap of right around 10 yards between clubs. if you want to replace the 5 wood I would look into a 2 or 3 hybrid and find one that gaps well.

For refrence I hit my 4h 210, 3h 220, 5 wood 230, and 3 wood 240 off the deck with a good lie...

I dropped my 3 and 4 irons and have no regrets, any shots I lost for not haveing them I made up for with the hybrids forgivness, and I can still punch it out of the low trees and brinches with the 5 iron just as easily as with the 3 or 4.... maybe a little better.
