I use the 15th slot for alignment sticks. Who the hell still has a ball retriever in their bag.

I do, Lol!! 🙋‍♂️

I look forward to 26 handicappers debating endlessly on whether the 3 hybrid, 4 hybrid, driving iron, 4 wood, or 5 wood is the right club to hit into the pond in front of the green. Then endlessly deb

Make it unlimited but you have to carry your own bag. 😉

Make it sub 10.   More skill and equipment companies would be pissed.

I own 15, don’t play with 15 though. I have a driving iron that depending on where I play goes into the bag instead of my 3 hybrid. 

 

I'm similar except my choice is between my Fli Hi 3 iron and my CB-57 set 3 iron.  Depends on how well I'm swinging.

That makes at least two of us.  Sits unobtrusively under an old knit driver head cover.  It's not like I never hit one in the water or into the low palm bushes (damn those thorns are sharp).  If I can see it, I'll retrieve it.

Exactly. Didn’t know there was anything wrong with carrying ball retrievers, Lol! All good, I’m not a trend follower and it’s practical! My buddies appreciate it when I scoop up that wet or muddy unreachable ball for them, and even PGA Tour Pros still hit balls in the water, so I’m not going to pretend like I don’t too!

I have read that some say it would slow down the game. I don't think that's reality. Before I get to my ball oh, I already know what club I'm going to hit most likely, and an extra club doesn't make a difference.

I'm guilty of carrying 15 sometimes just for testing, even in my 14-slot bag!  But I probably never actually use 14 in any round.  I'm pretty indifferent for competitive golfers using 14, 15, 12, 10.  People can shoot in the 70s with one!

 

Time-wise, yeah some pros on TV and hackers kill me with the amount of time taken to hit a shot.  I'm very conscious of my turn being quick.  Sometimes I'm just walking on joining people riding, and if anything tend to rush.  Heck, even alone with people behind me I don't want them catching up.  So regardless how many clubs I'm bagging I'll laser my distance and try to figure out the shot and club as others are setting up.

That is an interesting comment. I wonder how often, if at all, I use each club in the bag? Maybe I will keep track a few times this year just to see which clubs are most important to me. Like you say, I bet there are clubs I don't use in some rounds.

14 is already overkill. OEMs could make iron sets with 5 degree gaps and people would adapt quite easily. Having irons with only 10/12-yard gaps is kind of ridiculous. Should be more like 15. But that kind of change is never going to happen.

I am a proponent of 15 clubs in the bag, but am capable of having several less. I agree with your statement on gapping, as golfers could easily learn how to play this set of clubs. Actually, when playing with about 10 clubs it forces a person to adapt and be creative, which makes a better golfer out of themselves.
