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 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.

    • I’ve not really noticed anything,  I’ve played in the wet and I’ve hit with a wet face because I haven’t bothered to wipe it off.  However my pattern is “Jekyll and Hyde” so I tend to either hit it pretty straight or hit bad shots that are pretty bad.   So I doubt I would notice something that was saved by a few feet due to a wet/coated club face.  Usually trees do a better job for me to keep it in play.
    • When water gets on my driver face I hit knuckleballs... not my preferred shot shape.
    • Thing is… a lot of slower swinging players could probably use MORE spin.
    • There is someone at my club who has been noticed putting Vaseline or chap stick on his driver to reduce spin.   The person who told me said that they were told not to do it if money was on the line.   So I guess it’s a thing.  
    • Our Mens Golf Association has bylaws that talk about keeping things in the spirit of the game and polices certain behaviors and situations.  The person who runs it is a fierce competitor and when he talks match play strategy, he will say things about how he plays to put pressure on people to win and get into their head by trying to bury them or play aggressively at the start to make an opponent go in the defensive.   He doesn’t trash talk or say things to mess with people. As golfers, or people, there are going to be people who try and exploit anything they can get away with and it’s best to be prepared to deal with it and not let it bother you.  People who are jerks and push it too far will get reputations and in the end if they are excessive, it’ll rebound on them.
