Supposedly they took drivers and other golf stuff. If you see cheap drivers (assuming TM because they were missing when I went to look in the store)  on Ebay, report them.

Yes, it was the Jackson, TN store. Thieves got away with more than $11,000 worth of TaylorMade golf clubs, Titleist golf balls, and golf simulators.

Happened it Pittsburgh a couple years back when the R9 came out.  A couple went in and cut the shafts so they could walk out with the heads.  They hit a couple Dicks Sporting Goods and then were caught selling the stuff at local flea markets.

That is a huge loss. We'll keep an eye out. 1 of those golf simulators probably costed around $5k-$15k.

It sounds like they knew exactly what they were looking for.
