Depends how you policy is written, some replace fair market value, some use 100% replacement value and yet others may not cover a standalone shed. Most folks with home owners cover the contents inside the house If it is covered they'll write you a check for the adjusted value. Good luck

My brother had his clubs stolen out of his car and it was covered under his home owners insurance policy.  His was based on replacement value, for some of the items an exact replacement could not be made, so for instance, the driver wasn't still in production so a comparable model was used for value.  He also had a $500 deductible, but he got a check for the value less the deductible.

What is amazing is just how much you have in your bag, for all of his stuff he was right at $5000.  We are both pretty tight with our golf budgets and rarely if ever pay full retail for an item.  I can assure you he didn't spend $5000, but it's amazing how all the items in your bag add up.  Rain suits, GPS, sunglasses, windshirts, head covers, golf balls, he included all those things and they add up.

Oakley sun glasses (prescription) $300, head covers $50, Scotty Cameron divot tool, $20, Nike thermal sleeves, $40, Pearl Izumi hear muffs, $30, ZR rain hat $50, ZR wind top $200, ZR wind vest, $75, Frogger towel, ball towel, brush $70.  It's some of the little stuff that adds up, and we went through it with a fine tooth comb to make sure he could replace all of the equipment.  We catch a lot of crap from our wives that we have all the same stuff, but in this instance it was a saving grace.  I literally pulled everything out of my bag and we listed everything in it and got the retail price to replace.

well you forgot the alligator leather  golf shoes $900. and the 250 sun mountain speed cart for that matter too....My point is if you own and its stolen great, if you making things up to cover your deductible and get top of the line new equipment Taylormade/Titleist for example, when you owned Orlimar & that you think you are owed- well that is dishonest, against the law. To each is own,  better hope your insurance adjuster doesn't play golf, he may smell something fishy. I prefer to sleep at night .

Were are you coming off with that statement, everything in the bag was 100% legit.  My point to the whole topic was that you put stuff in your bag that you don't realize you have until it's gone.

    • It was fun to watch, Rory slowly moving up the leaderboard and with Chappell becoming a bit nervy on the final holes, Rory made it into a playoff. Rory didn't take full advantage of his shots on the par 5, and on the 15th I thought he had lost it. But great putts on the 15th and 16th to win in. What a fantastic golfer to watch, and he can smash the ball out there, almost hit his drive it in the lake on 18.
    • The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now. What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.  So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder. I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
    • How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate? How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary" How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up? Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before. Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment? Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.  Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
    • Haha, I've done that while walking.  The thing that made it embarrassing for me is I did it 2 or 3 times in the same round before I finally started catching myself.
    • I think there's a large old thread exactly like this already actually, just need to dig it up. Anyway, weirdest I've encountered was people rolling a cart.  I've also hit 2 geese myself (both with drives).
