Officials say they discovered 50 pounds of pot stuffed into three separate golf bags. The contraband was estimated to be worth $40,000, or just barely enough weed to make golf interesting.
In an attempt to make the effect more convincing, each of the bags had a couple of clubs sticking out. Although clearly, if you’re just golfing with a 7-iron and a putter, you aren’t taking the sport very seriously.
Authorities said that Border Patrol agents were prompted to search the area after they spotted several men swimming across the Rio Grande into Mexico.
Man, those water traps will get you every time.
It is believed that the smugglers were attempting to carry the marijuana-filled bags into the a nearby golf course, but abandoned them when they caught wind of trouble.
