I've used a Club Glove for well over 20 years and have always been pleased with it.  

Interesting about the TSA checks.  I just took a trip and don't think my bag was inspected either direction.  Maybe it was and I just didn't notice the inspection ticket.  I had a TSA lock on it.

I don't even use a TSA lock any longer. Zip it up and done.  I had a case where they busted their key off in my lock on my initial flight. Not knowing this I get to my destination and I couldn't get it open. Luckily I unpack in my hotel room and get things in order, put the driver head back on, get the clubs in order and such. So I was able to get to a hardware store and convince the guy to use the bolt cutters to cut the lock off and not have to purchase the bolt cutters. I offered him a tip but he refused. 

Since the clubs are in my possession until the bag check and I get them as soon as they come up the carousel I don't think there is a need to lock the bag any longer. Airport security is pretty good even behind the conveyors.

I like to use locks not for deterring thieves, but rather because too many times I’ve seen open suitcases on the baggage claim carousel followed by a trail of clothing or an broken bag along with its contents wrapped up in a clear plastic bag. Even a paper clip tying the zippers together is better than nothing.

I've had a Club Glove for almost 30 years and it's held up incredibly well.  All the zippers and straps are still intact and look like they could last another 30 years.  It lives outside in my shed (living in a small house in Key West, no basements) and the only issue I had about four years ago was the roller wheels elastomer degrading.  On Club Glove's site they sell replacements, but seemed rather expensive.  I checked the overall diameter and the bearing diameter and found it was a standard inline skate roller.  On eBay, I think I got them for only a few dollars apiece.  Once they arrived, it was an easy replacement with an Allen wrench.

To minimize driver damage on a direct hit to the top, I cut a broom handle about 1/2" longer than my driver and place it in the bag.  About three years ago I purchased a Bag Boy Back Bone which was light and sturdy to serve the same function.  Together, they help protect my babies when traveling.

Club glove pro because the internet said club glove was the best at the time.  I use a stiff arm and don't do anything special.  The pro has plenty of room if you really want to load it up.  You can stuff enough clothes and gear in the pro right up to the weight limit with plenty of room to spare.
