A very bold jerk just stole U.S. Mid-Am champ, Stewart Hagestad’s clubs

Published

on

Newport Beach, California, isn’t exactly an epicenter of crime in the United States. Don’t tell that to Stewart Hagestad, however. The reigning U.S. Mid-Amateur champion just had his clubs pilfered from his vehicle…which was sitting in his driveway.

How about this bit of generosity and opportunism, though? Harry Arnett of Callaway and Zac Blair (sponsored by Titleist) stepping in an effort to wrestle Hagestad away from TaylorMade? Savvy stuff, gentlemen. But really, further evidence that the world of “golf twitter” is actually vastly less soul-sucking than the majority of social media. We’re assuming TMag has him covered… (He does play a Cameron putter, however)

Hagestad won the 2016 U.S. Mid-Amateur and then secured low-amateur honors at the Masters, where he tied for 26th. He’s tuning up for the the August 14-20 U.S. Amateur at Riviera Country Club.

Certainly not to throw shade, but it doesn’t sound like Hagestad had his doors locked, else you’d assume he would have made mention of his windows being smashed, etc.

So, for the love of golf equipment, even when parking in the seemingly secure recesses of suburbia, lock your doors!

    NEVER, and I really mean NEVER store golf clubs in your vehicle. Heat can kill your favorite club(s) as quick as a heat gun or torch – which is used to remove a club head from the shaft. Played a tournament with a fellow who had his driver head come flying off on his first shot. Have built many clubs paid for by insurance companies and love the business, however the replacements are never the same as what were stolen. The thieves don’t want your clubs to use, they are sold on internet sites or out of town pawn shops. Thieves are too lazy to play golf and sleep during the day so they can steal at night.

      Club have been in my car for 20 years. Never had anything fail because of heat. I play golf after work, there’s no other option but to leave the in the car. I’m certainly not going to haul them into my office every day!

    Wow- I NEVER leave my clubs in my car for this very reason. I don’t even live in a high crime area and still get nervous about it. Glad to see people stepping up. That’s what makes Golf such a great sport

    Do not repeat do not keep your clubs in your car. Really we all learn the hard way at least mine was locked and they had to break a window. The alarm woke up the whole neighbourhood but man these these guys are fast.

Some big claims are coming in concerning The ATTAS Shaft.

The party may be over for 2019, but this is still a pretty fun Mardi Gras themed Squareback putter.

More Swagtastic gear from, well, Swag.

Well, what do we have here, Tyson Lamb?

One for the gamblers out there. A dizzying, intricately designed wedge from Royalty Sports. Worth quite a bit too…

The St. Patrick’s Day festival doesn’t stop over at Lucky Wedges, who are taking more orders for these beauties.

Fans of Ben Hogan Golf will likely be loving their BHM01 putters, while the putter covers look a delight too!

Happy hump day GolfWRXers! In this segment, we’ll be taking a look at seven of the best #GolfWRX tagged photos on Instagram. In case you aren’t already, there’s a whole load of action going on at our page, so follow us along @golfwrx.

Let’s get to it then, here are seven of the best #GolfWRX photos from the past 24 hours.

Ryan spent his time wisely in woodwork class in 1998, creating this sick Bespoke Scotty Cameron Newport Prototype putter. It may not work so good, but it looks the part.

Kanye at the Masters. My new favorite hype video for the year’s first major.

It looks like Dustin Johnson is the latest addition to add SuperSpeed to his game. The guy could do with a bit more ball speed and distance to be fair.

One for the Tyson Lamb lovers out there.

And the company also have these nice putter covers coming out today. Just in case you need that positive affirmation on the greens.

Dormie Workshops new Spring/Summer head cover collections include these beauties.

As far as surprises go on the golf course, this is up there. Although one Instagram member/undercover USGA rules official had this to say on the romantic moment: “Isn’t that a one-stroke penalty for assistance with lining up?”

Love the look of these custom copper divot repair tools from Pine Curtain Customs, which can be customized with either your initials or a design.
