Take The 3 Club Challenge

Choose Your Clubs Wisely

Next time you can play a round for fun, I have a club challenge for you.

Recently, I was getting a lesson with a local pro. He asked me a bunch of different questions about my game.

Near the end of my lesson he gave me a challenge. He told me, next time I was going out to play I should down size my bag.

He told me to bring the following clubs for 9 holes of golf.

  • 7 iron
  • One wedge
  • Putter

This may sound crazy but, this is the logic behind only bringing three clubs.

It really takes the thinking out of the game.

We have all been in a situation where we were in between a 3 wood or a hybrid, or in between an 8 or 9 iron.

Well you see, with this challenge you can’t overthink things.

Par 5?

7 iron. 7 iron. Wedge. Hopefully you make your birdie putt.

Par 3?

7 iron. Putter.

Par 4?

7 Iron. Maybe wedge? Putter.

So this makes things a lot easier on the mind.

The thing about this is that you take the mental block of club selection and distances out of your head.

You really have no expectations on tee shots because it’s only a 7 iron. If it goes 175, then you’re pumped. If it goes 150, you can live with it.

In golf, we often get so caught up in distances with our little range finders, or what club to use for this exact distance.

Golf is such a simple game, but sometimes we make it the complete opposite.

So next time you are bored, bring the kid with you and grab those three clubs.

Knock some around and see what you shoot for 9 holes.

I bet you will be shocked at the results.
