Huh???  I don't even know what you said or why you got involved.  Let it rest and get back on topic.  

 

Bags with 14 slots and a putter well aren't so designed to allow people to cheat the rules.  The putter is more vulnerable during transport if it's left in the well, so they make the 14th regular slot to put it in there when you aren't playing.  If someone chooses to use that slot for any of a number of other reasons, that's his choice.  I've seen people use the putter well for an umbrella holder.  Looks strange, but certainly not worthy of name calling.  I wouldn't think of carrying a training aid on the course, but I've seen guys with a Medicus in that extra slot.  I'm not sure if that would count as a 15th club or not.  Certainly one of the heavy clubs would, as long as it otherwise conforms to the rules.  To each his own... let's just play golf.

Sorry to confuse you.

 

My 14th slot just sits empty unless I decide I want to use alignment rods at the range. I did bring my extra UW out for a round or two and hit it after my normal shot to see if I wanted to replace my PW with it but otherwise it sits empty.

The other slots seem to be pretty much all the same size.

My current thoughts are:
- Based on the colouring of the top and the fact that the center four slots are a little deeper it may be that Ogio intend to have people put their woods in the center 4 slots and irons/wedges around the outside.
- The plastic bar along the bottom gets in the way of shorter wedges so it may be that the woods are meant to go here (in which case the irons could clatter into the graphite shafts!)
- It's bizarre that the slots with plastic guards are set deeper into the bag (bottom three + upper right and upper left slots)

Either way it's confusing at the moment. a2_wink.gif

Can't you guys count? Seems like 14 slots to me according to the picture. 4 slots in the middle and 10 slots surrounding those 4...
