I had 3 GPS units stolen from my Yukon in about 10 days in the same mall parking lot. First time... "I thought I locked it... Oh well... lesson learned." Second time... "I know I heard the thing beep when I locked it! WTF?" Third time... "Okay, I pushed the button... closed the door... heard it lock and walked away. I give up." Each time the car was locked afterward.
The cops caught the guys a couple weeks later. They had a radio transmitter thingy and would just drive around the mall parking structure until they heard a car unlock. Then take 10 or 20 seconds to grab a couple things and move on.
I have since disabled the keyless entry on my truck.
This is scary...

To the guys who offered replacements - hats off to you gents on a truly nice, genuine gesture. It's great to play a game amongst a community of classy individuals such as yourselves - part of the reason it's so much fun to meet new people on the first tee.

I have a Ford Escape and I hate that the windows aren't tinted. I always fear someone walking by is going to look in the trunk, see the clubs and anything else I might have, bust in the window, grab it and take off.

I would first like to say that I still have no idea how they managed to get into my car. The wedge was there when I left to go into the store and gone when I came back with no signs of forced entry. It was also locked.
I would also like to say that all of these offers are very generous, and that I was never expecting anybody to come forward the way they have. To anybody who will read this there is no more need to offer to send me a replacement wedge.
The original post was written with the initial frustration from having that stolen out from under me and as a warning to the members here that it can happen to you. Just be careful where you leave your clubs, is the advice that I can offer.
To show that I am thankful I will be paying it forward.
Tell me what you need dude ... I've got a bunch of extra wedges in my garage ... seriously ... feel free to PM me ... I HATE hearing about stolen clubs (it has happened to me more than once) ... give me the specs on what you need ... I may be able to get it to you ...
Okay ... just went and looked ... I have a Titty SM58-08 sitting here ... TT DG shaft, Winn G8 grip. Give me an address ... it's yours ...
WRX is not a discussion board ... it is a family ...

I sewed the top back up with fishing line and used iron on patches to try to seal it up.
The sick irony is I was googling car alarms WHILE he was trying to steal it.

So they broke my window, for about $2.48 worth of change.... My window was broken, and the piece inside the door was broken as well and it ended up costing me about $508 to get it all fixed. Figures, I had a $500 deductible, so I didn't even bother filing a claim.
Consider yourself lucky to only lose out on a wedge and not have to replace a window and parts to your door. If I had an extra 58* or 60* Titleist wedge I'd gladly give it to you. I sold my extra Titleist wedges a few months ago.
I might have an extra Mizuno MP-10 wedge at my Father in Law's place. It's a 58/10 I believe if it's still there. Let me know if you don't mind a Mizzy instead. For the cost of buying one on the Bay, it might be cheaper than shipping costs to Canada from S. Jersey.

Unbelievable. I had to make sure they were locked up and safe from employees of the course as well as other golfers.
I left a cleveland wedge near a practice green once and the pro shop guys started laughing when I asked if anyone turned it in.
