My wife says she needs room in her area of the basement and suggested I do something like reduce some of my stuff.

Can you choose one iron set to keep? That way she gets her area and you still have hogan’s

I dunno it’s like 4 square feet, move em someplace else

I'd throw out my wife before I threw out those clubs.

Well it is not that easy. She has a legit gripe. I have seven full sets off Hogans and may be 26 loose Hogan irons. However the real problem is that I have an additional six hundred golf clubs and 30 old golf bags that also live in the basement. My addiction to collecting clubs over the years has caught up to me and is affecting her laundry process. And I don't want to be assigned those duties.

Cutting down the herd is the way to go

Understanding you have a problem is the first step in recovery. Have you contacted GA? Golfaholics Annonymus?

I totally get the "throw out the wife first before the clubs" comment, a bit harsh, but I'm not that bad off. (I don't think.)

As far as joining Golfaholics Anonymous. No I have not signed up yet. I would have first stop hanging around in dark alleys and stop my Club Ho-ing activities first.

‘I want the basement cleared. You may keep one set.’

This paints a much clearer portrait than the original post, The photo made me think she was very unreasonable, as that isn't really that many clubs, but now that you've expanded your situation I can see her point.
Don't get me wrong, I certainly don't agree with her, but I see where she is coming from - I'd like to help you out, but I've already got 3+ sets of Hogan's and if I got any more then I'd be closer to your situation than I care to be.

Thoughts & Prayers for your pending loss

How high is the ceiling? overhead racks keep them off the floor and within easy reach. Some PVC and bungee cords should be a cake walk.

A little of everything. Wall Rack, display equipment old golf bags, work bench, three 55 gallon barrels and a few in the rafters.

beautiful sticks! fist set i purchased were the apex edge pros. the classic hogan design will always have a special place in my heart. recently switched to mp-5's but would love to try some hogan blades in the future.

    • I’m putting this here.... move it if needed. Fairly early in the season. Played maybe 7-8 full rounds so far. I’m close. I shot 41 on Tuesday on the front of a course I had not played since 2016. It’s a 128/70.8. A bad double blow up hole and 2 3 putt bogeys but not disappointed when with the 3 putts I still got by with 15 putts on the front. However I blew up and shot 45 on the back. Still for a course I’ve only played maybe 3 times it’s not awful. Then my college buddy comes down Wed. We play competitive to the point of defending home turf. I kicked the shit out of him last time he came down. He drilled me 2x at his course. I go out and make 2 putt pars at 1-2 and drill a 30 foot bender at 3 to get to -1 while he is respectable +3. Anyhow take double at 4 and 8. Bird 9 and end up +3 for the side 39. Home course I can shoot anywhere from 72-78 on a mid season round. I’m happy I’m under 40 with a pair of ugly dubs. But I for 2nd straight day just fall apart on the back. Ball striking gone. My putter is the only reason I break 90 after a solid front. I guess my question is there anyone else who can’t string 18 together? Am I over thinking it this early in season? Losing focus after a solid front?   
    • It probably falls under the same reason why so many 'old school' people still believe putt for dough, drive for show: Pure stubbornness. As @brocks has mentioned Jack got it all going with his moving the goal posts and apparently at that time he just had his way. And some of the guys here just can't let that 'Major wins' thing go despite it being shown quite clearly that 15>18. And I wouldn't doubt that despite Jack himself admitting the superior fields these days he'll hold on to that 18 as long as he can as the sole determining factor of greatness. 
    • Thank for the feedback guys! Yeah, from what I could find out they were the 1986 model. Not much else out there. Foam filled with brass inserts. I will probably pull the 2 iron (that I will never even attempt to hit, lol). Taking them out for a spin in the AM. Regripped 4-pw with Pure DTX in green, in honor of the 5th green jacket! Got to go to my 1st PGA tournament ever last Sunday...what a day that was!
    • That is your body talking to you. I had the same experience some 25 years ago. I would suggest you listen to it and stay off  the weights. I do not know how old you are but  at about 50 most people start to feel the effects of the tight muscles from the heavy lifting. If you are preparing the body for golf and life, you are far better off using exercises that are dynamic in nature and build strength by creating muscle integration instead of muscle isolation. You need to keep the muscles lengthened around the back not tightened. That will only cause you more problems down the line, but I would imagine you already know that. You could also have used inversion therapy to lengthen the muscles in the back and create more separation between the vertebrae . That might not be advisable anymore. Good Luck. .
