Hi,

Anyone went to the USA recently with golf clubs? Any idea if they are as strict as australia in terms of dirt etc?

Cheers

nope. only Australian AQIC is a PITA.

They will only double and triple x-ray your bags for WMD.

They don't in America but in Australia they do. In fact in New Zeland they do check too.

okay now I know who you are. Me was drooling the bags too but it was way way over my budget so had to settle for driver and putter cover and I do love them. So which bag did you get?

Didn't get any bags cos they wouldn't do so well due to the travelling that I do. It'd get killed by the airlines, and I haven't got the heart to keep this bag indoors (I already have 4 'flower pots' in my bedroom, wife ain't too pleased)

Will be getting the driver headcover from wife as wedding anniversary present this July Smile

MC, for travelling to US, how picky are they?

Its quite annoying when they hand you a ziplock bag with your soaking wet shoes inside, and you know that the only time you can air them out is about 4 hours away after your connecting flight....

It happened to me but not with golf shoes.
