Yesterday, I was playing at a nearby municipal course, and on a short dogleg right par 4 I was debating between my 5 wood and my 4 iron off the tee. I went with the wood and forgot to pick up the 4 iron on my way back to the cart. Around the green, I always leave my wedges between the hole and my cart, but I normally don't take multiple clubs to the tee. I didn't realize I was missing hte club until after the turn, so by the time I went back to look for it was gone. I checked with the clubhouse staff and left my contact info with them in case it turns up.
I know it's dumb to get upset about an inanimate object, but it was one of my favorite clubs, so I'm feeling more down about it than I expected. It'd be great to hear stories about clubs lost that made their wat back to their owner.
To kick things off, I'm linking to the great story about Hogan's 1 iron.
