What Club Would You Use?

I was watching Chella Choi hit a hole in one on the 12th hole at US Women’s Open during the third round. It was a shot over water and she was using an orange ball that tracked into the hole after landing at the front of the green. It was a great shot and the third of the tournament. The question I have is what club did Choi use?

I laugh to myself all the time when I discuss age with my friends. I am at the vintage where I remember things that might be considered ‘ancient history’ by today’s generation of golfers.
