If you've traveled the friendly skies before with golf clubs, you probably have a story. We all do. Our golf bags have been ripped, shafts broken and golf shoes smushed. But I'm pretty sure we can all bow out to Lee Janzen in the golf club damage department at this point.

Janzen was traveling to the Monday qualifier for this week's Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open when his golf bag got pummeled, and had pictures to prove it, thanks to the fine folks at GolfWRX.

The above picture is just one of the many that the GolfWRX has from his ordeal with the airlines, but kudos to Callaway, who shipped him an emergency set that helped him Monday qualify anyway with a 66.

The best part about this whole thing? The airlines told Janzen that he could rent a set of clubs if he needed, something every two-time U.S. Open winner wants to hear.

You can check out more photos of the damage over at GolfWRX, but for now, simply remember, when your golf clubs go airborne, it's never a good thing.
