understood. i carried 15 or 16 clubs for a while when i had a 65 degree wedge and was trying different combinations of fairway woods and hybrids. but i've started playing in more tourneys lately, so i dropped back to 14 and got serious about making decisions on what clubs to use.
I think that is what I will do
i decided that if i really wanted to dedicate myself to improving, i needed to go back to 14 clubs. treating every round like a practice/goofing off round will only take you so far. i'm not looking to be a pro or anything, but i do want to improve my game. so made the decision to get a little more serious.
My friends and I have a name for that - "The 6 Iron Challenge." One day a friend from college suggested we play the last three holes with only a 6 iron, it stuck. When I play with him we throw it in from time to time on say a drivable hole or a par five.
What I always found really fun and rewarding was going out with 7 clubs. You will learn to hit all types of different shots when you are in the middle of the fairway and don't have your club for X yardage. High and soft, low and scooting, left, right, nuked, knocked down, you need it all when playing with half of your bag. Being creative and visualizing the shot will be a necessity when you have 20-30-40 yard gaps in your bag!
