I used club covers on my irons and they were all torn.
Had a logo ball removed from my carry-on by the Mexican equivalent of the TSA in Puerto Vallarta.They showed me the list of banned items and golf balls were on it. Luckily, it was from the worst course I've played in Mexico.
I have heard this before. When traveling to/from foreign countries, do some googling to make sure you can carry on golf balls before they get snatched by security.
First and most importantly you should not be bringing a speaker to the Golf Course, whether intentional or not those speakers that folks bring often bother other golfers not even related to your group. You are being selfish by bringing that little technology to the course, it's not meant to be there and should never be used especially who supposedly loves the game of golf.
Wake up. It is 2019. Well over 80% of weekend golfers listen to music and many, many, many courses now offer carts with Bluetooth speakers. I am a senior, not a millennial, and I listen to music. I will agree that loud, blaring music should be avoided and is rude. I have a 10 step rule. If I can hear the music more than 10 steps from my cart, it is too loud. You would be amazed at the number of my men's group that actually want to get paired up with me since they know that I do play music and we are talking some guys approaching 80.To collectively include all music in your antiquated opinion is, well, antiquated.
Hide it in your umbrella, and stuff the umbrella in with the clubs. Works well with weed also (according to a friend of mine).
I have traveled all over the US, Canada, Caribbean, Mexico and Ireland for 25 years and never had anything stolen from my checked baggage.There are video cameras in all TSA locations.
Using Zip ties is a great way to know if your bag has been tampered with. Understanding that you cannot lock cases that hinders security checks broken Zip ties upon arrival let's u know if some has been in your bagand may put hesitation in anyone's mind before choosing your bag. But yes, nothing worth stealing, nothing stolen . It's worked for me
My buddy has had more than one dozen Pro V1’s stipends from his bag.
I've lost range finders, special divot tools - which cannot be carried on if they could be used as a weapon - American Airlines!, radar detectors, bluetooth speakers, and I'm probably forgetting something! No claims.
I haven’t had anything stolen but my last flight out of Fort Lauderdale FL, I got to my destination and opened my bag. You have to understand when I pack I weave a towel through tall of my club heads. When I opened my bag I found an empty golf bag and all of my clubs thrown inside of my travel case. I understand TSA has to inspect my bag, I’m tired on 1k worth of clubs being treated like crap. I started to stand , to repack my stuff, when the TSA was inspected the bag but the agent told me that I needed to leave.
I had a putter head cover I had just purchased on Maui taken on my return flight home. Also had a Masters golf club heqd cover stolen on another trip. Not expensive items, yet cherishes. I now place old head covers on my clubs before packing them when they will be sent as checked baggage.
