They say that in the right hands, any club can get a  golfer out of trouble. That's why  voted fairway wood. Apparently my 7W, and hands work quite well together. It's my go to club. Lots of confidenc

I use a 5w as long as I'm not worried about distance, IE hitting too far. It seems to get a lot of topspin roll and stays mostly straight. If I'm just trying to lateral it out I hood my 9I over with m

Depends on the situation. Even putter could be the right club. I’ve used driver/3 wood/hybrids/7 iron/putter.

5 iron for me. 

I feel pretty confident that I can produce a 100 yard punch out and a 150 yard punch out. I can't really punch out any further than that. And if I'm punching less than that I'm basically guessing.

Standard 5i, but I have experimented using my 19o rescue club. I usually try that when I'm trying to get more distance than with the 5i.

6 iron, would be 4 or 5 if I carried them.  I usually shut the face down, play it back and hit a low draw recovery.

Custom made 2 hybrid. Little bigger than a normal hybrid but smaller than a fairway wood. My buddies call it my get out of trouble club. I can punch it low or high 10-130 yards straight, fade, or big slice if needed. Doesn’t want to draw which is my natural shape even off the tee so I only hit in when I am in trouble.

Generally anything from a 2 iron to a 7, but on average I'd say a 4-5 iron.

Iacas was pretty specific about the shot - low punch a few feet off the ground.  I'll choose a more or less lofted club depending on which way I have to bend it (if I have to).

I read maybe 2 months ago.....your 6 iron tip to extract a shot under the trees to get out of the woods.

I tried it back then for a couple of shots with success...then abandoned it ......to go back to my usual 5 iron extraction shot.

Played today...and after a lousy 5 iron extraction on the 7th and 10th hole...went to the 6 iron for a shot on the final hole with much success.

I'll now stick to the 6 iron until it fails....lol.

I fail to see what significance using a 6 iron instead of a 5 iron has. It has more loft, so that can't be it. Shorter club maybe? That you can control the club slightly better, but you may want to choke down on the handle whichever club is used.

iacas

ya...I think this is the thread.....most golfers use their lowest lofted iron to punch a low shot out of the woods...for me a 5 iron.

But you said you prefer to use a 6 iron and then hit a shot and delofting it at impact...or something like that to punch a shot....I have found success with this method...I'll use it until it fails...lol....hopefully it never fails and I continue to employ this method.

My #1 option is the driver.  Whenever I use a hybrid or fairway iron, I usually get the ball to high into the air and into the low-hanging tree branches.  I just choke up on the driver, move the ball back in my stands and swing the club like a putter.  this works great, plus it allows me to pick up some distance (depending upon how hard I swing the club).

    • Day 72, August 5, 2021 Worked on the feeling of starting the downswing with my body. Basically the first move down. Check swings.
    • Day 5: Started off with pitches, using a 7-iron, until I was finding center face and ball was starting on target. Then moved on to 3/4 swings with 7-iron, and finally a few full swings working on downswing priority piece. Then did some COVID-19 day 7 drill with 54* wedge. Finished by attempting to pitch 3 balls. Took 3 tries to successfully hit all 3, but one went over the net and backyard fence into the community pool next door (no one was swimming at least). 
    • Not going to lie, I'm terrible at keeping up with mobility exercises. Stretching after training is also important.
    • Yes, they cause the worse roadblocks and they slow things down the worst.  Why?  Because they are accepted as “smart” or “accomplished” and pontificate like they know everyone while you second guess yourself to make sure you are saying things that are accurate.   Hands down, these are the kind of people who lead to high turnover in companies.  They revel in their own enlightened opinions and it takes too long for them to drive their ignorance off a cliff sometimes.
    • What I’ve read is that cnn requires vaccination if you come into the office and they weren’t, so I guess this is the right thing to do.  We are faced with a very difficult situation and we need everyone to pitch in.  Flying on an airplane, going to a crowded nightclub or concert or many of the things we do is not a right, it’s a privilege based on a private company offering up something.  They have the right to request saftey for their employees and other customers.    Vaccine has been given to millions of people without incident, just go if you haven’t already.
