I’m thinking 3 wood (maybe driver) and 6 iron. You would need a club you can hit out there a good distance and it would be a good club to putt and play some shots around the green with.

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.

I've played a bunch of these. My buddy and I used to take our kids out for 9-holes and we'd play a 2-club match. 3-hybrid and 6-iron for me.

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.

I'd be going with my hybrid and either a 6 iron or wedge. I think I'd still be able to take enough off the hybrid for most shots, and then have the wedge to play short shots around the green and putt with.
