What is the maximum number of golf clubs allowed in a golf bag?

Anyone who playes golf knows that you are allowed to carry a maximum of 14 golf clubs in your golf bag but the question is how many do you really need to carry?

We all get fooled by the club manufactures to buy the driver that adds 15-20 yards or the lob wedge that has extra spin or the putter that just can’t miss and as a result all end up with a full bag with the alloted 14 clubs.

Even in professional golf there can be some anomaly’s and for example Bryson De Chambeau who may play in this years Ryder Cup for the USA has all his iron clubs the same length.

In my youth I played golf with a retired gentleman called Stuart Jennings and he played with irons 2,4,6,8 and 10 on Saturday and with irons 3,5,7 and 9 on Sunday.

A few weeks ago our Spanglish Golf Society played a 4 club and putter competition and after the initial complaints would you believe that most players scored more stableford points than normal.

This was becaue they had to think about and visualise different types of shot therefore playing with more feel and being less automated and robotic in their club selection.

Why don’t you give it a try and leave a few clubs out of the bag for your next game?
