So I played a twilight round at a RTJ Golf Course this past weekend. I played pretty good considering my normal score and was on hole number 14 as it was getting too dim to continue playing. I was standing on the green lining up for my final putt when I hear some guy calling out for me. I turn around and I see two guys walking down the cart path towards me signaling with a flashlight.
I turn and finish my putt, pick up my Cleveland RTX 588 sandwedge and meet them at my cart. They said the guy locked gate #13 and they could not get out with their cart. They asked if I could give them a lift to the clubhouse. I said sure no problem. I mean they were about 20 to maybe 22 years old each, clean cut kinda preppy type guys that were very polite and seemingly ok young men. I put my putter and sandwedge in my bag, re-tightened the cart strap and got in.
One guy sat up front with me with his bag. The other guy strapped his bag in and hopped on back of the cart and held on and we were off. I dropped them off at the clubhouse, turned in the cart, loaded my bag in my truck and headed home.
I got up the next morning to clean my clubs and my friggin sandwedge was gone! I was like WHAT!!!! That kid riding on the back pulled my sandwedge out and put it in his bag while he was on the back. Pretty slick little move that makes me think they planned that all the way. I was going to call the pro shop and report the group behind me but by it being almost dark and with people most likely skipping holes and calling it quits, there is really no way to know which group that was.
Anyway so now I have to get another 56 degree wedge. You live and you learn.
