If you could only use 2 clubs

6-iron around the green--chips, putting?  I don't know.

We just played a one club challenge at the Erie outing and everyone putted with a 5 or 6 iron. It's not as hard as you might think. It wasn't "easy" but also not impossible. You could even putt with the back of the club. You're not going to save that many shots going with a putter over an iron/hybrid/wedge. More importantly you want to give yourself the best chance at getting on the greens in regulation (or getting near the greens in regulation).

If I had to dump my bag today and take the 2 clubs I hit most comfortably it might be 5 iron and 8 iron. I know I'm lacking substantial distance this way and same with loft but I guess with only 2 to choose from I'd want what feels most comfortable not most versatile.

You'd be surprised at how close or how many times you can hit the green from 110-130 with a 5 iron.

Sounds like everyone chose a 5 or 6 iron for a one-club tournament.  Anyone get funky and play it with a wood or hybrid?

No just 5 and 6 irons. We played the front nine at Whispering Woods from the white tees, 2947 yards.

how your putting with a driver ?, i feel a 2 iron be more versatile, long off the tee and close the face for putting,9 iron you can also be very versatile with.

Depending on the course…

Hybrid (2-iron/5-wood distance) and 7-iron

- or -

4-iron and sand wedge.

It's much easier to putt with a wedge, and to play short game shots with a wedge too. But getting close to the green in regulation is important as well. So I'm not sure.

    • Admirable!   Me--No matter where I bring my hands on the backswing, it's the downswing and impact speed that determine how far I flight a ball.  I might bring the back to shoulder, then my brain computes the distance and decelerates the club. On short shots, just the opposite.  Maybe tempo is my problem, but I do okay trusting my brain to the throw the club.  Too much technique and thinking really mess me up in the longrun.
    • Shot 89 today. Drove the ball very well, lost four balls on approach shots. Two were with a wedge in my hands inside 100 yards.
    • I wouldn’t. I like to see one number on the top as I quickly pull it out of my bag to play my next shot. If you want to know the loft of your club, say for gapping purposes, then look it up. Knowing the static loft of your club is not going to help you on the course, and does nothing but force me to look at two digits instead of one to determine which club I’m pulling out of the bag. 
    • This is disconcerting as I was Pfizer'd and if given a choice, back in March, I said I'd take Moderna, but because it was easier to store, not that I had some foresight of its effectiveness relative to Pfizer.
