Sounds pretty stupid but I.m more upset than angry.

It was a King Cobra 55d wedge "trusty rusty" bought years ago by my brother for my birthday.

I know i can probably find a used one exactly like it but it won't be it so wont bother. haha its a few pieces of metal i shouldnt care.

Anyone else made the stupid mistake of leaving a prized club on a green somewhere?

Anyway R.I.P trusty

Yeah rang them as soon as i noticed, unfortunately i had a terrible cold from the day after the round til now ( about a week ) so my clubs weren't touched and i didn't notice. They said nothing was handed in.

I posted on a local golf forum on the off chance that someone there found it or heard of a friend finding it. Not sure of its actual value though, i assume if its valuable whoever found it kept it if not i dunno.

I'd give any two of my other clubs to have it back =), first club i ever spun the ball with and i've had it for nearly half my life!

Anyone who knows about clubs tell me what it was worth? like $50 or $200? got a lend of a vokey 54 degree and while its a nice club I have nowhere near the confidence i had with the trusty.. mite even get a 58 - 60 degree with it :)

Condition of the clubs is different and reading the descriptions, seems people would buy this club for different reasons - someone buying as a collector who would pay more for a rare club in good condition.

all seem is reasonably the same condition to me, like they all have marked heads plus the oil can , rusty appearance.. i think all have original shafts with the cheaper one having a new grip instead of the original

Sorry to hear that you lost a favorite club...I'm always incensed when lost clubs are not turned in to the pro shop...so much for "A Gentlemens Game" eh?

Sadly lost clubs are as good as gone at my course as well...as for price disparity on ebay...its usually due to condition of club ...but also beware of counterfeits...there are many very reputable sellers at ebay and one good indicator is their feedback scores ...also are they "Powersellers" with thousands of successful transactions...hope you find a worthy replacement....and for the sake of our common humanity I hope someone turns in your lost club.

Cheers.

I'm always careful and almost always leave extra clubs on the flag. Lost a wedge once and could not believe it. Call the pro shop for weeks. The next spring, I was playing with my buddy and he said, "Oh by the way, I have your wedge from that round last fall. I guess I accidentally grabbed it walking off 18."

Call your playing partners.

Did that too =), I'm pretty sure its gone ie someone was not so gentleman like when they found it. Gonna look into replacing now though cause i have no confidence in any of the wedges i have tried from friends sets.. vokey, cleveland and adams, just feel and look weird.

One guy replied to my local forum post saying he played the course within the last few days and had a good look around every green ( think i left it on a hill after a 30 yard pitch ) etc to no joy, very good of him though

I have the same problem in reverse.  For the last ten years or so I was only playing about 3 rounds a year, all of them captain and crew tourneys (drunkfests) sponsored by local bars.  One year I was looking through my clubs and found a Titleist 7 iron that I didn't think belonged to me. I had no idea where or when I aquired this club so I couldn't turn it in anywhere.  I might have even bought it at a garage sale and forgot about it.  I was using a mixed bag of clubs back then since it wasn't worth buying new ones for the little bit of golfing i did.

I still feel bad not knowing whether or not I might have accidentally taken someone's club.

    • In my world of fantasy football people were killing Elliot because of his lack of points, What none of them care about was the man-sized job he did with pass blocking that kept Dak upright and slinging those passes. That said, I got the man on one of my rosters, so I'm hoping that game script is very different going forward.
    • I got a bag full of clubs, but practically I almost never use  the 3W, 4I, 6I or my LW. I also got an old model Taylormade burner bubble driver that hasn't left the bag since April. Some of it has to do with the shots I tend to hit at the home course, so the 6I and LW are rarely needed. ... But the 3W and 4I are just clubs that I don't hit well enough to bother with.  
    • Day 3 - worked on PP (straighter right elbow) 
    • It's not necessarily the number of the club that's important it's more the loft of the club.  I'm content for the next month or two to stick with. 10.5° driver, 19° 3 hybrid, 4 6 7 8 irons, 50° wedge, sand wedge. These seem to allow me to get round our course ok.
