If putter is not included:

3W
7I
GW

I've played a bunch of these in the past and like the above combo. But it could be whatever your favorite iron is from 6-8. Other people that played with me in these used an iron that they could hit all par 3's with. Not a bad idea if the yardages are similar. When I played this tournament it seems like the par 3's were the biggest problem.

I did this with my buddy a few weeks back.

I chose
19* hybrid
7iron
Gap wedge

He chose
5iron
8iron
SW

He hit the 579yd. par 5 in regulation with 3 5irons.  Looking back, I would now choose 5W, 7iron, GW

I had no trouble with the par 3's... I hit a 3/4 20yd. high fade into the the 180yarder with the hybrid. lol.

this is a good option, too. most guys are going to be putting with whatever they choose. you may make up some strokes with something like this.  however, id say...

5 wood

I've played 3-club events before.

I went 2 iron, 6 iron and sand wedge.

This combo allowed me to reach all the par 4's on my course (albeit with a 2 iron approach on a couple!), the majority with a 2 iron and some sort of 6 iron approach. Par 3's (between 155 and 200 or so) were all played with 6 iron (or a cut 2 iron in one case) and a couple of the shorter (500 yard-ish) par 5s were 2 shotters too, in hard conditions (the 3-club was always played in summer)

Sand wedge is indispensible.

Our '3 club' wasn't really a '3 club' since you got the putter anyway.

I'd pick:

Hybrid (20*)..I'm much more consistent with it then my 3 wood and I can hit more shots with it
6 iron...good to fill the gap and I can still hit nice low punch shots but can still hit a variety of distances
GW..I can hit it a little further then my sand wedge which is helpful.

I won an event this year playing with 3 W, 6 i, 52 wedge.  It appears as if that is not much different than the replies on here.  

I chose the iron by looking at the yardages for approaching the par 4's and the par 3's on the course we were playing.  Choosing the mid-iron is obviously the difficult choice and is dependent on your length.  Used the 3 wood to putt - belly style.  Choose a wedge for 100 yd shots and in - including something you can hit out of bunkers.  I personally did not find it easy to putt with the wedge.  Also, I felt that I could two putt most holes using the 3 wood and that choosing a putter was not going to give me any advantage.  

On a similar topic, most players in one-club events choose either a 6 or 7 iron . . . I think
