Well, I was a little bummed out on Saturday after discovering that I left my R61 Sandy Andy at the course after a nice morning round with Baloo. So I quickly called the course and let the pro know about it.

He knew exactly what the club was (he is older) and said he would watch for it.

I haven't left a club on the course for years, maybe decades, aside from the occasional heave into the woods or nearby pond for especially offensive ones. To leave a Sandy Andy behind..... How could I?

Well, thanks to the honesty of golfers the story has a happy ending. I called today and someone turned it in shortly after I called about it. I pick it up tomorrow after work. Woo hoo!

Just glad there are honest golfers in the world.

Of course my story is nothing compared to this:

I turned in a sweet Eye 2 SW a few weeks ago.
I was proud of myself.  ;)
Glad you also encountered an honest golfer. It used to be the norm but now, not so much sadly.

Some years ago I leaned my Cleveland low-bounce sand wedge against the fence on the 12th tee and forgot to put it back into my bag only realising what I'd done when I had to play a bunker shot on the 13th.
We were being followed by a pair of scruffy individuals and I crossed over and asked if they had seen my wedge,I got mumbled denials and a refusal to make eye contact and I said to my pal that I would bet one of them had it in his bag.
I reported the loss to the then professional and asked him to keep an eye out for it.
Couple of weeks or so later I was mooching round the shop and had a look in his 2nd hand club bin.
Amazing!
There in the bin was a Cleveland 900 low bounce 56 sand wedge just like the one I'd misplaced and at a bargain price!
It did find it's way back into my bag,at no cost.

I would have looked in their bags myself to make sure they hadn't 'accidentally picked it up.'
Glad to hear it was found though
