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...

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.

Fairway Wood
Favorite Iron
Favorite wedge

This will give you the confidence to hit and shot with these favorite clubs.

If none are you favorite then:
Fairway Wood
6 iron
Gap or Sand Wedge

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
