Let’s say you’re playing a tightish par 4 and you need to hit the fairway… or you’re playing, let’s say your league championship and your opponent just knocked his tee ball out of bounds…
What club do you hit to make sure you at least keep it in play and hit it far enough to reach the green with a reaonable 2nd shot?
For instance, if you were Phil Mickelson at the ‘06 US Open, what club would you hit to make sure you didn’t hit a tent 60 yards off the fairway?
For me it’s got to be 2-iron. I don’t know why, but my 3-wood isn’t as reliable as it ought to be.
