If you could only use 2 clubs

A 5 wood, and a sand wedge. I'd putt with my 5W.  I play a few 3 club tournaments every year. They are a lot of fun. I usually carry a 5I with those two other clubs. Depends a lot on the course make up.

My initial reaction is 2h and a 52 degree wedge - I'm sure I could putt with the 19degree hybrid, and if I have to I can hood a wedge to about a 7iron.

Then again maybe the correct answer is to just hit the 7-iron, it's the only truly safe club in my bag

Depends greatly on the course, but I'm @Jeremie Boop , I'd go with my 4h and maybe a 56*. Definitely would not take a driver as I can't hit it anywhere but off the tee and possible around the green for runners and whatnot. I'd go with FW over driver but I can really spank my 4h and it's way more versatile than a FW. I putt with my 56* and 60* all the time when practicing on the chipping green. Too lazy to go get my putter to putt out. It's not that hard to putt with a wedge, just got to get used to aiming it, you basically want to blade the equator.

I used to do it quite a bit for variety, and the 5 wood/sand wedge was my choice, although I'd blade the wedge for putts up to about 30 feet.  And it's good to have a short club for tricky chips, pitches and bunker shots.

My original thought was 4 iron and sand wedge, but I think I would actually go with a five iron and a gap wedge.  I would putt with the five iron.

LOL  at the people who don't realise that putting with a wedge is the way to go.

LOL at people who don't have s55 irons to putt backhanded with.

This was supposed to say, "I'm with @Jeremie Boop ". Man, I hate seeing my typos days later. SMH

Totally agree.

Putting with a wedge is kind of hard, you have to blade it, I think gripping down on a hybrid would be better, but maybe I'm wrong.

I would find the distance control too maddening. Hybrid faces are really hot compared to putters. You'd be surprised at how easy it is to adjust to a wedge for putting. The only trouble I have is aiming it well but if I have to choose between hitting my line and getting my distance I'll take distance control every time. Maybe that's just me though...

    • 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.
