Golf travel tip: Hide those Pro-V1s during your airline flight
I’m packing my Pro-V1s, my Callaways, my Bridgestones for my upcoming trip for some golf in Seattle.
I’m just not packing them where I used to. In the good old days, or maybe my naive days, I stuffed my golf bag with sleeves of new balls in preparation for a clash with a new golf destination.
To play your best, you should hit the best.
Problem was, these new nuggets seemed to be disappearing on the flight over, even long before I could ever jack them in the woods or dunk them in the water.
Isn’t it funny how every time you travel with your golf clubs, there’s a “your bag has been searched” tag inside? I’ve never tried to prove that the security screeners have fast fingers, but it’s one urban legend I believe to be true.
I pack my sleeves of balls in my carry-on luggage now. It’s heavier, yes, but worth it. Feels like I’m saving at least $12 (the cost of a sleeve) each way.

There are lots of honest security screeners out there, and then there's the one that's wearing my new watch that disappeared on my last flight. The pretty one still in the box...
