So in the current issue of Golf Digest it had a article about how they left 25 wedges at 25 differnt course with a phone number on them to return them to and 21 of the wedges were called on to be returned. Was just wondering if anyone has lost a golf club and if so did you ever get it back. This just intrigued me cause i just lost my pw saturday and today someone turned it in to the pro shop at the course .

I voted "yes". I once had a couple wedges stolen out of my bag at the range - when I had my back turned. Some people just plain suck.

I returned a club to a guy on the hole in front of me one time this summer, and he gave me $20! I insisted he take it back, but he stuck it in my golf bag so I just said thank you and played on. I wonder if it's still there.......

Returned clubs, towels, cell phone and head covers. Don't hold your breath waiting for your ball to be returned cause I'm playing it if its good or in my practice bucket if something I don't like (this only applies to balls found when no else is on the course). Never lost a club on the course, would truly suck if someone is so low they would take it for them selves.

Lost a 7 iron on the 18th green once, never returned.

Lost a scotty headcover on a previous green, never returned and when i asked a guy who pulled up behind me if he found it - he lied when i saw it on his putter - i didnt figure it was worth starting a fight over so i'll let karma take care of him

Lost a cell phone on the course once and thankfully that was returned since it was my work phone and i was supposedly working at the time.

I have found 4-5 clubs when on the course and have turned each into the pro shop unless I found the owner before I got in.

Yes there are some really sucky people out there. I have found and returned clubs, and have had a couple returned to me over the years. Also had a Ping putter headcover returned. Usually I don't get all the way to the clubhouse though. Owners come back looking, I never got a tip or offered one.

Honestly, no.

When I find a club, I just stick it in my bag and if I don't see someone looking for it or ask me if I have found it, I keep it. If it had contact information I would definitely contact them and let them know I've found it and I'll usually call the pro shop and ask if anyone has called asking about it.

I found a very nice TM 7 iron this past season ... crossed a fairway to ask the guys ahead of me if they lost it and one of them had. He was very grateful and I felt good making the effort ... it was just the right thing to do in my opinion.

I have found many and have always found the owner or turned it into the Pro Shop. My home course offers the shaft labels with your personal information on them. I have never ordered them, but I think after reading this article, I am going to.

I have found many and turned them in to the pro shop and sometimes approach the group in front and ask them.I left a 56* wedge on the edge of the 16th green and never got it back.Found numerous head-covers on the course and a scotty cameron one in the car-park.Handed them all in.Wouldn't even think about keeping them.

After over 20 yrs working on courses I've found and turned in MANY clubs. I've also turned around and saw these clubs in Pro Shop employee's bags.

    • There are plenty of threads here about putting.    3 keys to better putting If you want to work on the starting line, buy a metal yard stick with a hole on one end and practice putting the ball down the yard stick.   
    • Honestly, I feel like I'm hitting a little of everything.  When at the range off mats, I tend to graze the bottom which I can tell from the feedback of the rubber tee's.  When on the course/grass, I tend to top the ball.  I have noticed my heel shots as the ball direction is unmistakable.  Off to the left, sharp and extremely short and low.  I hit far better shots with my Hybrids than almost any club.  Then my wedges, then irons.  Driver, the least well.  I think I'm trying too many setup and swing techniques almost trying too many corrections.  I over pivot a bit and struggle with stable feet tending to come up on the ball of my left foot.  I played baseball for nearly 14 years so I'm trying to keep from feeling like I'm stepping (or want to step). So, my next real question... is it worth it to try and replace the shafts if the manufacturer ignores me?  I never really hit the GBB as I'd just bought it.  The XR16 definitely felt the best, went the longest and gave me the most confidence.  The Ping G SFT, I also didn't hit more than a few times but I enjoyed it.  I'll try and post some pics of the leftovers and driver murder scene.  "Driver-homicide" is going to be my new nickname.   Thanks Lihu!  
    • Hello guys I've always struggle on short putts and it is why I'm here. Well, when I'm witha shot putt, I realized that my backswing is not Ok, I do not feel that the line stays correct, it seens that my hand shake. There is something that I can do? Change my putting grip?   Thanks
    • Single-digit in two years is ambitious for me, but I'll see you guys in 2021.  
    • I had a buddy film a few drives during my round yesterday.  I am still diving down towards the ball with my head.  No idea why this is still happening, but it does not feel as if it is happening while I am swinging.  Plane seems a little better, but still very erratic. I got the first one off the toe. Started right and stayed right.  The second one was better contact but pulled left.
