    losing / finding a club

    Was playing a round this morning and on the 9th green I laid down my 60* wedge and took up the putter. When I got home I realised Id left the club on the 9th.

    By the time I got back it was gone and no one had handed it in to the leisure centre. Was gutted.

    But im equally annoyed that someone on the course behind me found it and kept it.

    Its probably very tempting to keep a club you find. Same as finding a 50 note on the ground I suppose.

    Ever lost or found a club when out playing? What would you do (if you dare to say!)?

    Re: losing / finding a club

    I've left the occasional club by a green but always remembered a hole or 2 later and always got it back.
    I've found a few and always handed them in.
    Mind you if it was a new Scotty......Mmm....

    Ive found a few wedges around the green & handed them in.
    Found a G20 5w head,whilst looking for my ball amongst the trees a few year back.
    Gave it a clean and got it reshafted 😁

    Re: losing / finding a club

    one member picked a club up, forgot it was in his bag after the round and it stayed in the bag until his next visit, 3 weeks later the club was re-united with its owner,

    could be a genuine reason the club wasn't handed in, try telephoning the club in a few days time,

    who knows, the finder could of still been on the course or in the bar when you returned

    little tip for the future, lay your wedge over the flagstick once its removed from the hole, its much harder to lose a club that way.

    Id find out who was playing behind me and get in touch (confront) them, if it was left on the green, then quite simply they have it and need reminding its theft to keep it 😡

    Re: losing / finding a club

    I used to leave wedges near the green, I always got them back, now I do as AAC suggests and lay them on the flagstick.

    Re: losing / finding a club

    All the clubs Ive found have been right handed and being left handed even if I wanted to keep it I wouldnt be able to use it.

    I found a laser the other week and handed it in at the pro shop, ask about it this morning and was still there.

    Re: losing / finding a club

    I have found clubs, left them in the bag forgotten about them and handed them in the next time I played

    Don't just ask once.
