Birds s#*t all over my car. This can be a normal thing for most people but I'm ranting for 2 reasons:

 

1. Just washed my car for the first time in forever

2. There's not even any birds that hang out in my neighborhood.

Had plans to go with a friend to a titleist fitting - he knows one of the local reps - on Wednesday. I don't really have much interest aside from something to replace my 3i, more interested in him getting new clubs. Due to some unfortunate circumstances he can't go this week. I was so stoked for him, now I'm bummed.

 

Made plans to play after work on Thursday - rain in the forecast 80% chance.

 

Saturday Mizuno demo - also likely to be rained out - 50% chance

 

I was looking forward to this week. Now all I have to look forward to is Tiger on Thursday.

Birdies seem far and few between your saying? Pun intended.. Ha ha ha I'd be mad too. My neighbors tree overhangs on my driveway. Guess where the birds like to leave their "presents"? Yup on my car...

Mad. Steamed!

Feeling, well, violated a bit.

 

Went out to a pre-surgical clearance doctor's appointment (FOURTH "clearance" check exam in 4 weeks - guess that's a rant-within-a-rant), then got an oil change .. came back and saw I'd left the garage door open .. which is usually no big deal as we live on a very quiet dead end street .. walked in through the garage and seemed to notice it looked like a few things had been moved around .. didn't think much of it as my wife and her daughter had been in and out of there a lot over the past few days for our family and friends Thanksgiving dinner .. but then noticed my "club corner" looked somewhat re-arranged and they had _not_ been back there .. .. heart skips a beat .. walk over .. worst fear confirmed: someone had come in, looked through the clubs and helped themselves to a few hybrids.....................

 

Fortunately .. WHEW!!! .. my "gamer" clubs were in the basement!

(heart beating again .. tho very quickly!)

 

And, fortunate circumstance #2, a few new-to-me clubs that I'd just picked up on Black Friday deals at Callaway Pre-Owned were in the car!

(along with my DST 8i and SKLZ whip trainer - two of my fave training clubs)

 

But .. very strangely .. there are a lot more clubs sitting in the garage, all in cart- or stand bags - including a number of valuable-to-me training clubs and a bunch of old but very playable wedges, some other older and not really playable clubs, some ladies clubs, plus a few other odds and ends. 

 

And they're all still there, including all the bags .. _except for_ 

2 like-new Hogan VKTR hybrids (from MGS testing last year)

1 brand-new TEE EX-9 hybrid (hit once so far at the range)

(and maybe a wedge or two, but I can't be sure)

 

So... Do I have a picky golfing thief? Or did he/they pick only these just these 'cause they were the newest ones sitting out there?

(possibly the latter .. to turn around and sell on eBay....)

 

Sheesh.

Really lucky. Really REALLY lucky. I mean, I've got a big, fancy snow blower in there, a bunch of tools, ladders, etc., but also golf nets and mats but especially really very really important I have my windsurf, surf and paddleboards in there! Weird. But yeah really lucky.

That sucks.  My guess is they were picking through the clubs looking for the newest ones that they think they can flip quickly.  Check your local golf stores and pawn shops.

Maybe a kid that just wanted to grab some clubs and scoot out of there quickly.

Thanks. Unfortunately, though, way too many of both of those within even a short distance.........

 

I was checking eBay and Craigslist, but u may be right .. pawn shop prob most likely = quick cash + untraceable........

Thanks .. that may be it. Like cnosil suggested, the clubs have probably been pawned already.

Sorry to hear ck.

 

Parents garage got broken into about 25 years ago. Dad's set he paid 800+ for five-ten years earlier wasn't touched, but mom's Walmart box set got taken

Sorry to hear ck. Lessons to be learned for sure. I have to keep drumming it into my son to close the garage door in the morning when he leaves for school.

Man, sorry to hear this ☹️. I think you're right though in that he/she grabbed what looked newer to sell.

That's a bummer!  Sounds like it could have been worse, so count that as a blessing!  I have quite a stockpile of old clubs and bags in my garage.  I seriously doubt anyone would want them.  My wife would like me to set them out by the curb with a Free sign on them, but I think they would still be there after a week.  However, they might get taken if I put a $50 sign on them.

Having to clean up for the cleaners who are coming to clean my house. We are not slobs, but the kid's toys are everywhere so my wife wants us to clean that up so the cleaners can actually clean what they are supposed to. I guess it makes sense and yes, I was seeing how many times I could use the word clean in my Rant, well because I don't want to clean up the toys.. (6 times but I'm not counting)...
