We May As Well Put ‘Em On Milk Cartons

I’ve noticed a lot more random golf clubs (wedges, putters, etc…) hanging around the clubhouse where I work. A theory I have is that these golf clubs, as well as other inanimate objects somehow grow legs and leave their owners. However, I am 99% sure that it is the owner who is at fault and will forget to return the club to their golf bag after use.

This makes for sad little clubs and sad little golfers.

Here are a few little friendly reminders to those who have left a club at a course (I have been guilty of this and will most certainly continue to be).

If you should bring a club other than your putter up to the green, leave it somewhere that will be impossible to overlook. I find that leaving the club on the flagstick is a good spot, for you are always going to have to put the flag back into the hole before exiting the green.

Keep a sticker around the shaft with your name, your phone number and/or the name of the club you belong to. This will hopefully expedite getting your club back into your bag, should the finders not be greedy enough to take it for themselves.

Count your clubs before and after you play your round. There’s nothing worse than to find out you’ve lost your club after you’ve played, especially in the car on the way home or at next week’s golf round.

And may the golf gods strike you down should you lose your putter… that is unacceptable.

Another good tip is to :

1. always put the golf club between the hole and the cart. In most cases someone in your foursome will see it.

2. If you happen to be on the other end and find a club on the course. Pick it up and drop it off at the club house. The owner will surely check in at some point.

3. Stay sober and alert when playing the game of golf.

I was going to write something about putting a sticker on your shaft, but I'm not sure if this is a family blog or not...

I could use a new putter. Anything decent in the "lost" bin, goods?
