Get your Play Golf Minnesota license plates!

You've probably seen the "I'd rather be driving a Titleist" bumper sticker more than enough times in your life. The problem with bumper stickers is that they're really hard to get off once you put them on a car. Good luck selling your clunker with that bad boy on there.

So, Minnesota came up with a way for golfers to share their love of the game and not ugly up their car in the process.

The state's motor vehicle administration has given the OK to start selling "Play Golf Minnesota" license plates this summer. If you want one, you've got to make a minimum $30 donation to the Minnesota PGA section that will be used to help foster youth participation, as well the typical registration costs and a $10 specialty plate fee.

Some legislators had hoped to employ the 2016 Ryder Cup logo on the plates as a nod to Hazeltine National hosting the biennial matches next year. However, it was feared that it would take much too long to get permission to use the logo.

As it turns out, Minnesota is the ninth state with golf-themed license plates, according to the Associated Press. Such plates have also previously been available to vehicle owners in Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, South Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin.
