Do you mean behind your ball? Driver low point should be behind, not in front of the ball.
I do ground mine fairly close to the back of the ball, but I make a conscious effort to have the correct AoA on impact.
I take my Driver head off and place that in my suitcase. I also use a club protector or a broom stick if you do not have one and wrap towels around my clubs. I will pack 1 pull over with my clubs and 1 pull over in my carry on luggage.
A couple dozen golf balls plus a dozen loose balls in my bag and 1 pair of golf shoes. I always weigh my bag to make sure it is under 50 pounds. I do not lock my bag because of TSA and I do not pack electronics at all. They can tend to go bye bye sometimes.
In my carry on luggage I will pack another dozen golf balls BUT a good TSA agent will always open the luggage and inspect. The shape of a dozen golf balls in a box gets them pretty nervous.
I put my golf GPS in my computer backpack as that is the only way I can protect it from disappearing. I always bring my work laptop on all trips, as I own a business and with that I never ever get to go on a full vacation without doing any work. Every vacation, every long weekend trip I have to do something every day on my laptop. Thankfully with phones I can do quick email answers. Detailed spec answers I need my laptop.
I rarely purchase travel insurance as I do fly a lot but when I am traveling with golf clubs I do purchase the extra travel insurance.
