Whoever said “all deals are made on the golf course” probably didn’t have this in mind.
A set of golf clubs filled with cocaine was intercepted at the Miami International Mail Facility, the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol said Tuesday.

An agent conducting a routine search of the clubs on Monday discovered the illegal drug in the hollowed-out shafts. The package, which came from Colombia, was bound for New York.
The drug’s street value was approximately $30,000, according to the CBP. This equated to about 1.14 pounds, WFOR-TV first reported.
No arrests have been made. The CBP seized about 3,700 pounds of narcotics every day in 2019, according to the agency.
