I went to this page too, and there's a search box to check specific items. One choice is "1 golf club", and the response is that it must be checked.
I also googled this, and find the following article, dated just a couple months after the HuffPost article:
Apparently the TSA changed their mind.
@Patch made a comment in the "streak" thread that earlier today that got me thinking a bit.
At first I paid it no mind, but then I started pondering, "I wonder how many rounds I've played?"
I started playing golf as a kid, but never that much more than casually. Started around the age of 10 or so and played 9 holes with my mom and her friends once a month or so, maybe. (let's convert to 18 hole rounds, so 6 a year, for about 4 years, 24 rounds total) I played a little more in high school, but I wasn't on the golf team, so still, probably no more than once a month. (48 rounds) In college I started playing more frequently, perhaps twice a month, for a few years. (Let's say 96) From college until my back started to really become a problem (10 years or so) I only had a few friends who golfed and we played probably 6-8 times a year, maybe less. (70 rounds) Since 2012 and joining TST, I've upped the frequency quite a lot, playing the most I've ever played ... about 30 or so rounds per year, on average. (150)
Add it all up, and it's a heck of a lot lower than the number I would throw out there off the top of my head if I was just guessing. 388 rounds played in my life to this point (obviously giving or taking 40 or 50 or so - this is a wild guess after all)
So that is basically it for this thread. Do your best to estimate how many rounds you've played in your career, and throw in any other information you find to be pertinent (age, years playing golf, whatever). And vote in the poll.
It had been a while since I had been reminded of this. Yesterday, I was in a slow foursome behind an even-slower foursome. My guys took forever, but we still were waiting on the group in front of us. Five-flipping hour round. Shot a 45 on the front and then 52 on the back after the driver went sideways. Just too much time in the hot sun.
