I hate the 14 clubs limit rule. Especially, because it was made when most people putted with their 1-iron and the longest shot was maybe 250 yrds.
And when they allowed wedges to have more than 56°, they should have allowed one more club.

I'm either one wedge, one fw wood or one iron short with 14 only. And when I go on the course with 15 in a private round, does anybody complain? No.

Are you saying there was a time when wedges with more than 56* of loft were not allowed?
I think there was a time when the 60° lob wedge emerged that they discussed banning it, similar to the anchored putter discussion that's going on right now. In the end they didn't, that's at least what I understood.

I've always wanted one extra club as well.  My rationale is that you can only hit one at a time anyway - so why does it matter how many are in your bag????

Yeah, there was a lot of controversy about the 60 degree at one point.  Obviously it blew over.
Imagine if you were the caddy to someone with 30 clubs....

You're misunderstanding the measurement process...
You lay the paper flat on the ground, not inside the divot.  When you push the edge of the paper up to your ball it will show how far below the level of the surface of the fairway it is.

This could turn out to be both fun, and profitable!

I'll be selling these soon. Retail models will go for $29.95. But of course, for a premium, we'll be offering tour issue models featuring titanium construction as well as a laminated "new rules" card that also doubles as a waterproof pad to kneel on while you and your playing partners huddle around a depression and argue the merits of local grass growth rate percentages. Be one of the first 500 buyers, and we'll throw in the handy Anger Gauge Wheel™ to help accurately calculate when the group behind you is preparing to hit into your impromptu gardening-group huddle. Exotic performance rulers will be available at an upcharge at time of launch.

Fantastic looking device!

I'm certain you've built in sensing mechanisms that will point all those involved as to where the epicenter of the divot in question lies...

For fair and accurate measurements of course...
very cool

i wonder how many on here complaining about having to hit out of a fairway divot actually fix their divots with either sand or replacing sod.

Don't you believe that "common" things are "normal"?  And only uncommon things abnormal?

Not exactly. If my car is having an engine problem, and other owners are having the same problem, then it might be a common problem, but not a normal (or, one that should be happening) condition. Those occurrences often lead to service bulletins or recalls. So, I think it's common to make a divot, but often the divot is leaves an abnormal ground condition until it grows in.
