Good story wolf, glad you did the right thing as especially glad the guy was not the abusive type towards his wife. I cannot imagine how I would have reacted as either of the men in this story, hopefully just as these two did.

Thanks for sharing that story. Some people were just raised right, and you're one of those fortunate ones.
I'm glad you're feeling some "satisfaction" due to your actions, it's good to do the right thing, especially since you had an option not to.

Well done on giving back the clubs. Don't know if I would have been able to give up a shiny new R11 like that!!

Good on ya man! Doing the right thing isn't easy most of the time.

After reading the story, I have to wonder if the woman sold the clubs so cheap because her husband had convinced her that he didn't pay much for them. lol

Major props for returning the poor schlep's clubs, I could only imagine the feeling in the pit of his stomach when he realized his clubs were gone!

I agree. You did the right thing. The poor guy must have passed out when he got home and found his clubs gone. Great job Beo!

Great story.

You definately did the right thing. It's always good to think about, does this make sense? or why am I so lucky?

I'm glad the guy was appreciative of you doing this and it's a good feeling!

Way to be Beowulf;:thumb: Many guys would just boast how they snatched the set for $60. It's good to see one golfer helping out another.

Great thing to do Beowulf! Glad something inside you told you to drive back there as I'm sure things were VERY tense in that household.

If you're ever in Arizona, I would like to treat you to a round of golf, on me. I can get on almost all courses here in private or public, just don't go crazy on me!! lol

Well done, sir! Respect! :clapp:

this is one reason why i keep my clubs in the car, or at least try to get whatever the wife wants to sell setup for her. :D. I have to say you are a true gentleman.
