Here is John's 4 club set up.

If I ever hit my 7-iron 195, let along INTO A BREEZE, I will take off my shirt, carefully wrap the club in it, and carry it all the way back to my car even if I am on the hole farthest from the par

I switch the position of my Driver/3W/Hybrid with wedges/putter when switching between carrying and using a push cart so the toe hang of the irons doesn't bang on the graphite shafts.

I bought a bag with separate dividers just so I could have an unquestioned spot for everything. I'm a project manager in my professional life and everything is process and organization. I guess it carries over into my golf life too.

It goes back in it's own slot, I have 14 full length dividers in my Nike bag and all my clubs have their own slot as follows...

3W/ Driver/Putter

I used to carry a GW in the empty slot but don't use it at the moment.

i group my irons, but everything else (driver, woods, putter) have their own slots. irons are grouped as 3/4, 5/6, 7/8/9, PW/SW/LW.

I've been thinking about rearranging my clubs in my bag (since I have a hard time removing them and putting them back in sometimes).

Here is a photo of what I did today:

I use the following groupings:
- Driver/3wood
- Hybrid
- 4i/5i
- 6i/7i
- 8i/9i
- 56/60
- Putter

How do you guys fit your 14 clubs in your bag?

I basically use the same type grouping as you except in 3s with the putter getting it's own slot. But this doesn't last long - first hole missed par putt, putter gets slammed in with woods. 2nd hole sprayed 9 iron now thrown in with wedges. Third hole duck hooked driver, spends time with long irons. And so on and so on, lol.

I use a 14 slot cart bag.... no problem with organizing, and even better, the grips never get tangled in the bottom.

Back when I could still carry, I had (still have) a 4 slot Sun Mountain Eclipse stand bag.... 1-3-5 woods in the top slot, (2)-3-4-5 irons in the middle left, 6-7-8 in the middle right, 9I-PW-SW and putter in the bottom.

By the way, if you count you'll see that I only carried 13 clubs except for the 3 or 4 years when I carried a 2I... most of my life I've played with less than 14...

I have a maxfli 14 slot bag, top row is driver, smaller driver, hybrid (if I feel I need it). Middle 3 holes are the 3,4,5 irons. Then at the 3oclock position and on clockwise is the 6,7,8,9,p,54* Putter is in putter well on side. I do okay with getting stuff in and out.

Do whatever works for you. Personally your bag looks bass ackwards to me - like a complete 180 from the traditional (i.e. logical) way. But I started with old mini staff bags 5 or 6 slots (like a modern tour bag, but smaller). Clubs in ascending order of shaft length so they fit together properly and the heads of the short irons don't F up the ferrules on the long irons. Starting with the woods at the top, then long irons in the middle left slot, mid irons in the middle right slot, and wedges in the lowest slot. Putter fits in somewhere it won't wreck graphite shafts - most likely with the woods if playing steel shafts. This was before they had delicate milled faces and putter covers *coughsupergaycough*

I had to look long and hard for a 14 slot bag that allowed this same traditional club placement - or something close to it. Hence the Sun Mountain 4.5.

I had similar thoughts regarding accessibility of clubs in my bag. I organized a little differently:

Left column (top to bottom): Driver, 3-wood, 2 hybrids
Middle column (top to bottom): Putter, 4i/5i, 6i/7i, 8i/9i
Right column (top to bottom): PW, GW, LW

This way the long woods/hybrids have their own column and don't interfere with the rest of the clubs, the putter (the only club I always pull) is easily accessible, and they're organized by column: Woods/hybrids, irons, wedges. I kept longer clubs on top so that they can still hang slightly over the ones beneath them. I tried putting shorter clubs above longer clubs but they sat right against the longer ones making it annoying to pull out the longer clubs.

Woode: Driver - 3-wood - 5-wood - Hybrid
Top slot: Putter
2nd slot: 4, 5, 6 iron
3rd slot: 7, 8, 9 iron

    • I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I usually play Wednesdays and Fridays also the odd Monday  . If I don’t play Monday I will often go and have some practice, either that or a Tuesday. I often take the Driver , 3 wood 4,5 & 6 irons out of the bag and go with the rest. Learn to hit shots with the clubs I have ,stop around the green have a few chips ,pitches putts etc.  Also I read Dave Pelz’s short game book a while back. I’ve adapted my bike and can fit a wedge on it. At night I go down to the corner of a mown area by sports fields. I take turns of which wedge, and do pitch & 2 different ‘finesse’ swings. Over summer I’ve gotten a pretty fair idea of how far I hit the various swings & it’s definitely paid dividends . I regularly get up & down from under 100 yards, especially under 40/50.  Before I just sort of guessed which club, and the other benefit is swinging slower I find I’m much more accurate with my direction. 
    • One of the things I have noticed about really good Youtube channels - let alone excellent films, is exactly this. There might be a time lapse that would take hours to video, but it is on screen for perhaps less than two seconds. But it gives the presentation quality. Look at films with incredible special effects and costumes/props - Lord of the Rings, for example. Years and years go into making things like a belt that a camera may never even focus on, or be a hundred metres a way, but the film wouldn't work without them.The total is greater than the sum of its parts. The flip side of this, of course, is that a prop that takes 5 minutes to make and looks like crap it is noticeably crap even if it is on screen for half a second, like a poorly photoshopped "family portrait" or newspaper "front page" with a stuck on headline on paper not even close to the colour of the newspaper. The devil is in the detail and tiny things connect to make the big picture. A bit like golf, perhaps.
    • I’d rather have it shut than open. I can find a swing where it’s more shut than that. Open doesn’t work for me, the extended lead wrist gets me steep and I shallow late, leave the face too open (or shank) going to A7. The last 3 instructors I’ve worked with have told me to bow the lead wrist at 4 more and I’ll get away from that and get steep.  When I try and do that my arms come off my chest and path goes too out to in. When I feel like I drop the club behind me at A4 my arms will go out towards the ball pretty good I think, like in the second swing, at A5 my hands bisect the torso. 
    • My 2 cents is that if you have to add more than 1.5" or so, you are really in need of new shafts. As far as "orange dot length" is concerned, I always thought that the dot color only denoted lie angle, not length. For example, if I were to order Pings, I would want blue dot (1" upright) at standard length (I fall on the short end of standard range). I just came across an old post on here that give a good Ping chart. Don't comment in there unless it is really pertinent though, as it is quite an old thread.
