I was about ready to bash you and the author for basically laughing at these people, then I actually read the article and saw it was a fox. :-D I've never gotten my golf ball stolen by a fox, but I have had an iguana eat one and a turtle sit on one.

I wonder where it puts the golf balls; just imagine if you found a borrow filled with dozens of golf balls.

Once i got to the 16th tee at my course and saw a coyote puppy by the bushes to the left.  Well i hooked my ball near him and he pounced on it like a toy.  then he picked it up and ran off with it.

Coolest way to lose a pro v ever!

This actually happened to me the other day at a local municipally run course the other week on the 3rd hole.

A couple of foxes were playing around the green in and around the bunkers. I get out of the cart, grab my putter and 56 degree, both Titleist...

Go for the chip in to 6 feet, so I put down the wedge on the edge of the green, all the while these foxes are watching me. As soon as I address the putt and look up I see one of the foxes go right up to the wedge on the green. I think to myself, "that fox is way too small and harmless looking to do anything to my club...," then smell the clubhead, lick it for taste a few times, then look up at me slyly, then proceed to take the grip in it's mouth and start to dart away for the bushes.

I couldn't believe what was actually happening to me. I can only imagine the amount of Titleist V1 and misc. clubs there are in that creek.

That doesn't surprise me, dogs love golf balls. My own dog used to sniff out my golf balls from my bag. She was just a clever little 10 pound-er and happened to love the balls with the softer covers. Pro V1's have soft covers.... She destroyed about 10 when I was out of town one weekend. When we put her down I tucked a shiny new one under her arm with her, for the road.

I saw this happen to my wife a few years back at the East Potomac Park golf course in DC.  She hits a nice drive down the middle of the fairway and as we are approaching her shot a fox runs out, stands over her ball, looks right at her, then bends down, snags the ball and runs off into the right rough.  My wife starts chasing it, screaming, and wildly swinging her club.  Fox finally drops it into a hole in the ground and darts away.  When we get to the spot we find a hole with about a dozen golf balls in it.  :)

    • Yea, those first three par 3's were all effectively long iron shots. BLAH! Hole 2 and Hole 5 were OK. The rest on the front nine were meh. 
    • I appreciated the idea, but I don't think I will be doing that.  For me, taking the arms out causes my right elbow to stay to close to my body, and the hands start to just go deep.  I agree
    • Ditto.  The course certainly had some faults. It was squeezed onto a parcel of land half of which was barely suitable for golf. So I think the architect did a mostly good job with what was given to him. I was less happy with the course setup and maintenance. Greens were bumpy and speed was very inconsistent from one hole to the next. Too many cups were cut 3 yards from the front, and many others were cut on top of humps or on slopes 2% or more. It is no wonder pace of play was almost 5 hours. My other gripes are that many of the original sand traps have been removed, dummying down the design intent to save money, and cart paths were often too close to the playing areas. I probably would not play there again.
    • I have a John Deere, Taylor Made Golf bag (black and charcoal) and I'm looking for a Taylor Made Golf Towel that I can customize it with an Embroidered John Deere Logo. Any websites, or custom people out there that anyone recommends?
    • Yeah I don’t blame him. He probably just wants to enjoy watching it in his own comfort.
