    These dudes rule! I’ve become a podcast junkie and this is definitely in my roto now.

    I’ve always wanted to try this but none of the courses I normally play offer a 3-club tournament or it happens during a time I can’t make it. If I had the chance I’d probably play my 19*H, 8i, SW. I do practice putting with my wedges after seeing someone sink a putt on course with one during a round. He forgot his putter in the cart and it was faster to use his wedge after a bunker shot

    We play a 3 club tournament with the boys at our club every year.

    6200 yards from the whites.

    My clubs:

    5 hybrid

    Won with an 80 🙂

    7 iron @ 34*
    58* wedge

    Played 9 holes one time with a 6 iron, PW, and putter. Shot even par on a course I played a lot, and usually shot 37-42. Par on 9 was 35. As others said, “go figure”.

    Once shot a 39 in a men’s league with 3 wood, 7 iron and 56*. Putted with a bladed 56.

    I’d take my 3 hybrid, 7 iron and pitching wedge. I use my hybrid for chipping and putting in some situations with good results.

    4 hybrid 160-210 yards

    8 iron 100-150

    and my putter

    My usual score is 80-82, with 3 clubs my score is usually score is 78-80

    Crazy when you have to concentrate on making a good swing and solid contact… opposed to what club to hit

    3W, 7I, GW on a round last year. Putted with the three wood, with amazing results, and ended up shooting my average score!

    19° Hybrid (235yds, drive, long approach & chip)
    7 Iron (170yds, approach & par 3’s and chip)
    54° Wedge (115yds & in, sand, chip and putt)

    Used to play “5 Club Fridays” with work buddies. 9 holes before work and only allowed 5 clubs. We would shoot our best rounds to. Go figure….

    Hybrid, PW and putter.. you can make that hybrid work for so many shots until you need a wedge.

      I agree. I won last year with a hybrid (all tee shots and approaches) and 7 iron (opened up to a wedge for one shot). And putter. Depends on course and rules though. I played stabledord so didn’t need to worry about playing out of a bunker.

    as an amateur my one putt percentage is low enough that using a wedge to put with isn’t that much of a loss. recently Rich shiels shot like 3 over with only a 7 iron (one club challenge) on 18 holes. I practice putting with the wedge so i’d go 3wood 7 iron 56 degree

    22* Hybrid, 6 iron, putter…..or Square Strike!

    5W, 8I, and putter.

    Half your strokes are putts. It seems nuts to me, that anyone would take a driver, used once on something like 10 to 14 holes, instead of a putter, used about twice on all 18 holes.

    My three clubs? A 5-iron, a 50-degree wedge and a putter.

    • Jon

      Dec 27, 2017 at 10:55 pm

      Totally agree. At least half your strokes will be putts, so to not choose a putter would be a poor choice. I would take my 18 degree hybrid, a 50 degree wedge and my trusty putter. We have an annual 3 club event at our Club and I usually score in the 70’s with these three clubs. Makes one wonder why we need 14? Fewer choices!

    • Des

      Agreed, but as I’m sure you’re able to consider “blading” a wedge for putting can accomplish putts? I used to think a putter was a necessity but found that getting on the green with least amount of shots was most important … blading my wedge for putts with a little relaxed focus is VERY possible with a little confidence. 😉

      I’ll add something, for a bit of emphasis after reading several other comments…

      Yes, playing with half-sets is a total blast! It is probably the most fun I have on a golf course. I am a 9-hdcp. I shot two even-par 9’s (from forward tees) with my half-set:

      3-wood (TM 200 Tour “smoothie”)
      52-degree GW
      59-degree SW

      So even when I carry SEVEN clubs, driver isn’t in the mix. Scoring is all around the greens.

      Seven clubs, a single-strap Sunday bag, walking, forward tees; heaven.

    I would use a #3 wood, 6 Iron and a 9 Iron….
