Flying with your golf clubs, while often necessary, is among the least fun ways to travel. Not only are they a b—h to lug around, but once you finally do get rid of them at bag drop-off, you now have to deal with the mental anguish of not knowing where they are or how they are being handled between now and your destination – plus whether they’ll come out on the regular luggage carousel or at the oversize area at the other end. Air travel is stressful enough as is. Add one of your most prized possessions to the equation and the stress multiplies by 10.

One way to quell the stress is to get a window seat, that way you can attempt to lock eyes with your sticks after the plane has landed and the baggage handlers start loading up a trolley. The problem with that is it can be a “see how the sausage is made” situation, which is exactly what happened to the East Tennessee State University men’s golf team after they landed ahead of America’s NCAA Championships.

Some things are better off unseen…

Good lord. Every golfer’s worst nightmare right there. Right when you think you can take a deep breath because you see that your clubs have safely made it to your destination, these two clowns start chucking your bag around like a hot potato for absolutely no reason at all. It’s almost as if the one guy was actively trying to cause damage to everything inside those bags.

Now, just imagine what happens to your clubs when nobody’s watching, and filming, from seat 37A. It’s a miracle they ever end up to where you’re going and in one piece at all. Hopefully, no real damage was done to anyone’s clubs. And hopefully this guy never transfers to work for Qantas, Virgin or Jetstar anytime soon.
