I have been on board with reducing the club limit from the ludicrously inflated number of 14 for years now. Since the advent of the atrocity that is the modern ball, the game should do everything in its power to promote creativity. Allowing 14 clubs is such a sickening way of coddling the lazy golfer who wants to go out and swing without any thought. There is relatively little need to manufacture a shot on most mundane modern courses with modern equipment. From a course standpoint, width combined with firm, undulating greens and short grass runoffs provides the necessary ingredient for interesting golf. If you could fuse that with a ball that actually spins and an 8-9 club limit (10 is still a little high) you have a winning formula for dynamic and fascinating golf. Of course, none of this will happen and we will be stuck with the watered-down version of a great game that we witness on television every weekend (if we have absolutely nothing else better to do).
From another point of view, reducing the club limit to 8 or 9 will encourage more people to walk, which is another huge benefit for the game and for those of us into golf course architecture.
