Without depth or draft control a 3-point hitch plow can work very nicely; done it for years, even in strongly varying soil conditions. A few conditions must be fulfilled, however:
1) Shares should be in good condition and have "suck".
2) The 3-point should have the right geometry. The toplink must NOT be parallel to the lower links. When the lower links are horizontal, the top link must slope downwards from the plow to the tractor attachment point.
3) The plow must have an adjustible gauge wheel.
4) The hydraulics must have a provision to float.
HTH, Hendrik

Regarding the geometry of the three point hitch (item 2) I forgot to mention one important aspect. The lower lift arms, if viewed from above, should NOT be parallel. The distance between the attachment points of the lower lift arms to the plow should be larger than the distance between the attachment points to the tractor frame.
For ground engaging implements, especially plows, this is critical for proper tracking.

I have seen some aftermarket 3-point hitches where the lift arms are parallel. These are fine for lifting but not for pulling ground engaging implements.
