TSA at ORD once let me carry on a putter that had been broken down into a few pieces - I use it in hotel rooms for practice. Comes with a ball and a nice wooden cup. They said they considered it nonfunctional since it was in pieces.

TSA at HPN got all huffy and made me check it. According to them I could have screwed the pieces together and hijacked the plane. Personally, I think that if pax had seen me screwing together a putter and trying to hijack the plane with it ("Take this plane to Cuba, or I'll sink a birdie putt!!"), they'd have probably ganged up on me and thrown me out the nearest door.
