14 club rule

Did you ever wonder who made up the 14 clubs rule,(It was probably a Caddy), which limits the number of clubs you can carry in your bag.

It was put in place to return to shot making to a higher skill level.

That rule was adopted by the US golf association in 1938 and then by all the major associations in 1939.

One player from that era , Lawson Little, carried as high as 25 clubs in his bag,  He must have had a strong caddy.

I wonder if they made that many clubs with only a couple of degrees difference in the face of the clubs.
