Seriously? Have you ever held a golf club?

"hopping curves" is much harder than riding one handed and you have to do that on your 5 minute commute

You seriously think it is a difficult technical challenge to fasten the club securely enough for a 5 minute ride?! 1 tie right behind the club head, the other three quarters or so up the shaft. Club head closest to the front wheel. Just use some velcro strips that cinch tight, and the thing ain't moving over that kind of distance.

And what the hell does "hopping curves" mean? Turning in midair?

Just quit playing golf and concentrate on your cycling.

Personally, I got frustrated with golf. Never could seem to get the timing right on the little windmill vanes.

And yet somehow countless smart people are able to secure much heavier things to their top tubes while touring and bikepacking. And like riding one-handed is safer.

Think harder before you post. If that's possible.

Which hand should you use for riding and which one for holding the club?

Does it matter if you are right handed or left handed?

Don't you think it's completely apt that the posts of a guy called Vintage Schwinn would be ridiculously overbuilt?

OP could also just ride one handed.

I fetch the recycling and garbage containers using my bike, I roll them using the left arm and ride with the right arm.

No one has asked the really important questions yet - how tall is he and what club is he carrying? Is he 6’3” and carrying a pitching wedge or is he 5’2” trying to carry a driver with an oversized titanium head??? Get all of the info before posting recommendations, folks.

If you go with this, you can carry a driver and an iron and live out a Braveheart fantasy whilst riding to the soccer field.

I took it to mean bunny hopping onto a curb, probably with a lateral movement as well.

I like to carry with my dominant hand but it shouldn't matter

Tape a plastic club divider tube to the top tube, slide the club in and secure the clubhead.

50 years ago I rode my bike to the pro shop to pick up a Ping putter I had ordered. That was the solution we found and I'm still using that putter today.

That makes sense. I know when I ride one handed I use my dominant hand to retrieve a water bottle, check a saddle bag, etc.

Polo style. Then you’ll be ready to take out side view mirrors of anyone who’s parked in the bike lane.

OP keeps disproving the old saying about there being no such thing as a stupid question.
A golf club is a small object? Not it's several feet long. You used the word stupid, not me, but it applies.

Sling is no a bad idea, but I would need to bring scissors to remove string before use
and use new string each time

Small is relative. See above where I said I've carried a cello on a bike. Also several feet long and much wider than a golf club.

​​​​​I agree, your golf club question is stupid. I think you know where you should put your golf club.

I have to ride up a steep hill, navigate a busy intersection, and hop several curbs while crossing the street
all during this 5 min. ride
