Fourteen clubs are the maximum allowed in one player's bag. Any number below 14 is fine, but more than 14 is not. Fourteen is the maximum number of clubs allowed to be carried according to the rules of the United States Golf Association.
It can be an expensive mistake. From this years Barclays at Liberty National in Jersey City, NJ.
"Golfers are allowed 14 clubs in their bags, of course, but [Jim]Furyk discovered the offending 15th as he was approaching the second green. He was docked four strokes -- two for each hole that he carried the club -- and as a result dropped from sixth to 15th place, a decline which cost him $131,250 in prize money."
