If you could only use 2 clubs

2 clubs is kind of silly - the putter should be a given.   In addition to the putter, I would take a 3h and 9i


It's not a given. Two clubs. So what's your new answer? :)

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.

Why should the putter be a given? The whole idea is to force choices and foster creativity. Learn to putt with a wedge, or take your putter and get killed by the guys that have a hybrid and wedge.

If I had to use only 2 clubs, I'd go fishing :-P .      Trying to think how I could putt without a putter - probably use a 3 iron as it has the least amount of loft - I'd just make my way around the course hitting low liner punch shots at various distances  (I've become very proficient at that shot out of necessity), and an 8 iron (God help me if I ever wound up in a bunker)

Belly a wedge. Hit the ball with the leading right about the equator. I do it all the time when I'm practicing my wedge game. I've even, on rare occasions, putted out tap-ins with my wedge during actual rounds if I'm really close and too lazy to go back to my bag.

interesting ... but I bet it would come down to a putting contest - those who could belly a wedge would have a huge advantage

Bellying a wedge is easy.

Things rarely come down to putting. Book on the left talks about that a bit. :)

4w, 8iron.

4w because that's the only fairway wood I have and I don't hit my 3 or 4 irons all that well.  8 iron because it seems like it would give me a reasonable approach distance and not be too bad to chip and putt with.  8 iron is also the longest iron in the bag that I hit my best.  What I mean is . . I hit the 3 and 4 pretty poorly, the 5 ok, the 6 and 7 pretty good . .but I hit my 8iron through wedges so much better.  I can hit my 8 iron almost as far as my 7 (and with much better trajectory) and I can hit my 7 almost far as my 5.  So . . .8iron for me.  Hopefully next year it will be the 7.

Does that apply if they're putting by blading an iron or bumping a fairway wood?

I would assume so. A bad putt misses by a smaller margin than a bad full swing shot every time no mstter what club is used. People tend to put undue blame on poor putting not realizing it is a poor long game that results in difficult putts. When I 3 putt it is either because I left myself a very long putt with a poor approach or something silly happened, lip out, crazy sloped green etc.

So if you 3-putt because of a poor approach and you're 50 feet away with a uphill/downhill, left/right breaker, how are you going to do if I take your putter away and you're blading a mid-wedge.  Still a 3-putt?  A 4-putt? A 5-putt?

    • 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.
