Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley's golf bag disappears from Phoenix Open Pro-Am

By

Secure the bag has taken on a very literal meaning for Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley.

On Wednesday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Bradley’s day started off like any other. In fact, probably better than most.

Bradley finished fourth in the pro-am, while being caddied by his dad who sported a matching beard and a similarly vibrant Hawaiian shirt. His group beat out Patrick Peterson and Michael Phelps among others stars. He beat his own manager, Torey Lovullo, who spoke highly of Bradley while meeting with the media that morning. He got to hold the Phoenix Open gopher.

By all accounts, he seemed to have a blast.

But the day took a devastating turn, when Bradley realized he couldn’t find his golf bag. The momentary panic of misplacing it quickly gave way to a darker possibility: Bradley believed his bag to be stolen.

Bradley turned to social media, as he has done before. Back in the summer, it helped him find his dog.

It could have been the perfect crime… if it weren’t for the fact that it seems the bag burglar posted the loot for sale online, with Bradley’s embroidered name clearly visible.

While the post could help close the case, Bradley doesn’t need to worry too much if he wants to golf in the meantime.

For starters, he is a millionaire.

But on top of that, PXG heard the terrible tale and delivered replacement clubs to Bradley before he could say “those meddling kids!”

Scottsdale Police Department sergeant Ben Hoster confirmed they are investigating the Archie Bradley golf bag theft, but did not provide any additional information.
