Stolen Clubs

aquapigaquapig Advanced Members Posts: 174
After finally “completing” my bag, I had my car stolen and my clubs are gone.



The cops caught the thugs who stole my car, however no clubs.



A live in St Petersburg, FL and the clubs were:



TS3 Driver

TM 3 wood

900 F irons

Mack daddy wedges

Odessey Putter

Mizuno bag



These guys weren’t golfers so they most likely sold them to a pawn shop.



Anyone in the area see these, please message me.



Thanks!

    That sucks man! N Tampa here. I'll keep an eye out on Craigslist. How bad did the b&stards mess up your car?

    Definitely keep an eye out on Craiglist, local swap/pawn shops, and primarily flee markets in the area. When my bag was stolen out of my car, the one thing I forgot to check were local flee markets which represent the fastest and easiest "no questions asked" venue to ditch stolen goods. I never found mine and I wouldn't be surprised if that is why.

    Well these thugs stole my car somewhere between 1am and 6 am yesterday morning.



    Judging by the amount of stuff in the car when the cops called me to pick up my car, they didn’t spend time going to a flea market.



    Total inventory was 12 cell phones, 8 purses, 10 wallets, multpile pairs of sunglasses and phone chargers.



    It was like something you see in a movie, but they were using my car.



    Home owners apparently is who I file a claim with. Just wondering if with my deductible and all, if it’s worth i?

    Depending on your policy you probably will get all new replacements for a $500 deductible. It’s definitely worth the call to your agent

    I have serial numbers written down for everything I own golf wise, not that it will stop anyone, but will make identification easier once found.. now you'd think that Mizuno or another OEM brand might come out with a chip that can be sewn into a bag at factory to help track a bag full of clubs when stolen... just a thought.

    I record ser#'s too if there is a ser#, and keep an up-to-date current replacement cost (such as a new model if it's an older club) for a rider on my insurance.



    But not every manufacturer puts ser #'s on clubs now, at least iron sets. I seem to recall Callaway just puts it on one iron (7 iron?) and possibly not on all their woods now? My Miuras just have "genuine" stamped on them, which I think is pretty dumb, but funny.

    Sorry about your car being stolen and glad they caught the thugs. Me personally I would never leave my golf clubs in my car overnight. It took me years to build that bag piece by piece from Craigslist by looking at ads whose clubs are undervalued.

    Seriously. I’m not trying to be a subject changer. But did you leave the keys in the car ? lol. This has bugged me all day and I can’t figure out how they bypassed the locking steering column , and the PATS system to be able to drive it.





    Hope you find the clubs. I know that’s the point. It’s just a personal curiosity to me how they drove it.

    In my area, if your barn is broken into, flea markets are where tools show up. In a city near me, there was a rash of car thefts and burglaries. According to the CoP, 85% of the victims had either left the keys in the car, had left the doors unlocked or had left things like laptops in open view. He said thieves are lazy, so with the most simple precautions, they generally will just move on. Hope the OP gets his stuff back, or homeowners will make him whole.

    I live in St Pete and auto theft is out of control. I used to throw rolls of toilet paper in people's trees as a kid, these kids steal cars, get a slap on the wrist or kill an innocent person trying to get away from the police.



    They realy need a seperate jail to contain it.

    Man, hate that happened and hope you recover your clubs and everything you value.



    I Had my car stolen from a gated condo in St Pete... they drove it out past the security guard.... St Pete police saw it at 10AM, turned around and lit up the blue lights. The kid floored it and made a turn at speed.. the officer turned off the lights because they have a "no pursuit" policy.



    Purchased a car the day before the 20 day insurance waiting period was over... got home with it and PD called at 4:30 to say they found it. It was beat to ****. Worst part was a friend was a musician and I had a one off tape he put together. Everything else was replaceable.

    FWIW - when I regrip my clubs, my ID is put under the new grip.



    Actually accidentally left a club behind on a green years ago. Went back to the groups behind me & I see my club in a player's bag. He was adamant it was his, but I took it out, and slit the grip about 3" up from the bottom - he looked a little ash-holey when he saw my ID there.



    Just a tip from your uncle augie.

    Yes my keys and clubs were left in my car...



    Let me explain. I played golf Sunday and on my way home from the course I received a call from my wife that she was having contractions and was going into labor. The course I played is about 45 mins away.



    This is our first child so as you can imagine I was a bit amped up and pretty much sped home.



    Got home and went straight inside. My keys and wedding ring were in my golf bag still.



    We started packing stuff for the hospital, took the dogs out and fed them and we left in her car.



    We had someone come dog sit until we came home Wednesday. First night home with my beautiful daughter and this happens.



    So of course it’s my fault for leaving my s*** in my car, but I was not in my right frame of mind. Got home on little to no sleep for 3 days and did t even think about my car. I assumed I locked it.



    Anyway, next morning when I went to take the garbage out I noticed it was gone.



    I leave on Pasadena Yatch and Country Club and this kind of thing is unheard of.



    I’m going to try Play It Again..that’s a great idea. If they pawned (hopefully), then I will most likely get them back when they go thru the police system.



    Thanks for all the advice.

    Congrats on the new baby!



    You won't have time to play golf now anyway. Lol. No need for clubs.



    My clubs live in the trunk of my car. Hope yours turn up. All the clubs at my local flea market are junky flips from the Goodwill store.

    We started packing stuff for the hospital, took the dogs out and fed them and we left in her car.



    We had someone come dog sit until we came home Wednesday. First night home with my beautiful daughter and this happens.



    So of course it’s my fault for leaving my s*** in my car, but I was not in my right frame of mind. Got home on little to no sleep for 3 days and did t even think about my car. I assumed I locked it.



    Anyway, next morning when I went to take the garbage out I noticed it was gone.



    I leave on Pasadena Yatch and Country Club and this kind of thing is unheard of.



    I’m going to try Play It Again..that’s a great idea. If they pawned (hopefully), then I will most likely get them back when they go thru the police system.



    Thanks for all the advice.


    Good luck with everything. You are in my neighborhood as well.

    Several years ago, I had a few sets stolen out of my trunk in my driveway. A week later, I saw them on Ebay. The seller was a few cities over, so I contacted him for direct pickup.

    Let me explain. I played golf Sunday and on my way home from the course I received a call from my wife that she was having contractions and was going into labor. The course I played is about 45 mins away.

    Were the keys in the car when they got popped? Because if the keys are still in your golf bag then you will likely have a small radius from where the car was recovered to look for clubs..

    Congrats on the new baby!



    You won't have time to play golf now anyway. Lol. No need for clubs.



    My clubs live in the trunk of my car. Hope yours turn up. All the clubs at my local flea market are junky flips from the Goodwill store.
    I played more golf the 1st few years of my daughter's life, by far, than I do now. She's 14 now and a basketball player.

    Wow. That sucks. And that wasn’t what I was getting at , at all. I just work around the oem automakers software and know how hard it is to steal a modern car ... virtually impossible without a ready made program to flash and kill the anti theft system and then you also have to break into the locking steering column go free it up. Nearly impossible.



    Anyway. Sorry if I added some frustration. I just wondered if the crooks were getting better ( which I doubted they were ) or if they got access to the keys.



    Congratulations on the baby girl. Focus on that. The clubs are just ..... clubs. Hope you have a good rest of the weekend !

    My wife had family in town yesterday so she let me go play. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    I put together a mismatch set of my old MP-30s and my first ever sand wedge, dad’s old 3 wood and putter, and just for giggles my grandpas old hickory Wilson Staff II driver.



    Shot 81 and couldn’t putt at all with that small gripped putter. I’m playing to about an 8 right now so the clubs really didn’t effect me much. In fact, I forgot just how sweet those MP 30s feel.

    Nice to hear that you got out to play. at least you did pretty well with the older clubs it sounds like .

    I actually has my bag stolen from the bed of my double locked truck while at a golf show. I guess if you are a thief looking for an easy mark, that may be the place to hang out. Live and learn.
  • aquapigaquapig Advanced Members Posts: 174
    So if anyone local or at least in Florida see a set that match that description, please reach out to me.



    Bag was a teal and grey Mizuno cart bag

    TS3 Driver Tensi White stiff

    900 forged irons w blue and black golf prides

    White Nike lunar vapor control 2 shoes



    Shot in the dark, but what do I have to lose at this point?

    I am sorry to hear you had your stuff stolen.



    Congratulations on the new edition!!



    I had my bag stolen one year ago today. It was stolen right off the golf course, from the 1st green parking area to be exact. (because of the design, the carts were parked out of sight from the green. And also down to the design, the thieves were able to approach and leave completely unseen from the 1st green) We played just one hole in our first round of the year!



    Anyway, my car key and phone were in my bag along with almost all brand new clubs. The car key costs came under my car insurance, and the rest came under my homeowners insurance. I needed to replace the remote car key and the key cylinder in the car door. I ended up eating that expense myself. Because almost all of my clubs were new I had receipts for nearly everything. I have a $500 deductible and my insurance covered the rest relatively quickly. I mention all this in case some of my details might be helpful to you or anyone else. From what I understand, it's not so much how much the one claim is...but how often you make a claim that can lead to problems with insurance companies (at least mine) massively increasing your premium or cancelling your coverage altogether. If you have made any other claims recently then you may want to take that into consideration before going forward with a claim on your clubs... Several months after my theft I paid my annual homeowners bill and the premium did not go up much, if at all, but it was my first claim in many years.



    I called around to the play it again sports and at least a dozen pawn shops in the days right after my theft. I also kept an eye on various online options. After calling about 12 pawn shops, I came across one that said they indeed had two guys come in the very day our stuff was stolen, and it was just a few minutes from the golf course. I confirmed that they had surveillance cameras, and got the name of the employee working that day, then called the officer in charge of my case and gave him all that information. They never even bothered to follow up that lead.



    I hope you have better luck finding your clubs than I did.



    Again, congratulations on your new edition!

    Thank you Lou for not only the well wishes, but for sharing your story. I hope to get lucky, but the cops didn’t really care to listen when giving them details of my clubs.
  • aquapigaquapig Advanced Members Posts: 174
    Still no leads on my clubs.



    Guessing I’ll never see them again.



    Anyone local see a grey and teal Mizuno bag, set if JPX 900f, brand new TS3 Driver, TM2 3 wood, Also got my old 910 D2.

    I had a set of clubs stolen when I was in college that I still mourn over. Staff Goosenecks and a mint Tad Moore TM8 in the bag. Wedges and woods were meh but the putter still holds a spot in my heart. I checked pawn shops and flea markets but never had anything turn up. My Marvin the Martian and K9 head covers seemed likely to stand out but it caused me to lose faith in humanity. Did I mention the Tad Moore?



    I hope you find your sticks and the scum that violated you pays dearly...good luck
