Stolen Putter.... NOOOOOOOO!

drtaylorwright

Well it actually happened, I go out putting during lunch every day to a nearby low key course and when I went in really quick to pay for a bucket of balls someone took my brand new limited first of 500 Newport 34 inch putter with red head cover... (yes that sounds like Ralphy on a Christmas Story describing his red rider bb gun...)

I'm just venting about it in this discussion because it's therapy for my soul:) Keep an eye on your bags everyone... this was totally my fault, even for a quick second you can have something stolen... always keep your bags in sight!!!

    So sad when golfers cant be trusted. The last of the honorable, self-policing sports and we have to carry our bags into the clubhouses... Shame!

    Ugh. Sorry to hear this, drtaylorwright. It is the worst feeling having clubs stolen. I have been there and it is just awful.

    I'm sorry to hear about the putter.. Hard to believe that people would do something like that.

    So sorry to hear about your putter. We all get so attached to our club's, especially if they have Titleist on them. I would bet it was not a TT member. I would keep my eyes OPEN! The thief may return! Good luck!!
    Play Well,

    I have been lucky thus far in my life, but now that I have my Titleist bag and it is almost full I get very nervous when my bag isn't on my shoulder. Is there specific insurance either in Canada or the US that golfers can purchase for such incidents?

    I hope the dirtbag who took it 4 putts everything from now on! Sorry to hear about this, that's awful

    The sad truth is clubs are only reasonably safe at private courses. After a friend of mine had a 7 year old Cobra driver removed (retail value about $40) and others here that have had full bags removed, I keep my clubs with me like I would a 3 year old in a mall. I even shopped for an SUV that could fit a bag L to R and under a cover so that no one can see the clubs by looking in.

    Sorry to hear about you loss. Years ago when I bought my first Scotty the good old boy in the pro shop told me to NOT use the Scotty head cover because they attract unwanted attention. I thought that was great advice so all my Scotty head covers are in a bag stored away in my basement and I use non-descript head covers on my putters when they are in my bag.

    Dude Total Bummer!!!
    I have seen too many clubs walk away when their owners just stop in at the turn for a quick bite or break...I never let my clubs out of my site...I feel bad for the guys working the courses looking to help with golf bags...I tell them I don't let others handle my bag...I get the funniest looks but I have never lost or had a club walk off. I also use non branded head covers sometimes to disguise my prized clubs.

    Bummed for you!!!

    What a bad day, hope Karma raises her head to whom ever took it

    This is very unfortunate. What is the World coming to? A good lesson for all of us. The course I typically play at, I often after warming up and putting for a while, I will leave my golf cart by the putting green and go in for lunch before teeing off in an afternoon shotgun. I have never had an issue, but will be changing that practice now. With a full bag of titleist clubs including a Scotty Cameron Putter, it would kill me to suffer a loss like you have.

    Hopefully the golfing gods will smile on you and you will be reunited with your pilfered putter. Fingers crossed!

    I am sorry to hear that, you would think that in a sport such as golf, people would be honest and simply leave other players equipment alone. unfortunately, a Scotty is a treasure and some people have no moral code.
    Never "lost" a before, have, however, "lost" a couple sleeves of balls that I left on top of my bag pre-round.
    I have found and returned a lot of things in the past on the course, countless wedges, mostly found on greenside bunkers.

    Come to think of it, people lose a lot of things on the course

    Had this happen to me also. New X5S in front seat of car. Ran into a store and left window down.

    Sorry about your putter, that's terrible. I've had my head covers swiped multiple times and they're not even the limited edition ones.
