If we were allowed 15 clubs even I
might add a chipping wedge. Why not? They're easier to use because they're simpler. I might never use the thing - I barely use my 14th club as it is (lob wedge) - but I might carry one around on the odd chance I come across a shot where it'd be handy. Heck, a bump and run from a really thin but soggy lie would be a great situation for a chipper.
So if some guy out there has 12 or 13 clubs and considers that "complete," then I fully support adding a chipping wedge if it makes the game easier or more enjoyable for him.
