D-backs’ Archie Bradley thought he found his missing golf clubs for sale
A day after losing his golf clubs at the Pro-Am for the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Arizona Diamondbacks relief pitcher Archie Bradley found a set on the online auction site OfferUp that appeared to be his.
The picture, taken on a different day, showed a golf club bag with his name stitched into it. The bag was noticeably missing the D-backs logo that Bradley’s bag at the WMO had.
Bradley tweeted a screenshot of the post, but a person claiming to have created the account said he found a picture online and created a fake post.
(cont.) my account was terminated (which I deserve). So i had no access. im so sorry this was a joke that went to far, I didn’t mean for it to be found by you or written by Arizona Sports. I hope you find them I am truly sorry man Thanks for everything you do for this community.

He also tweeted a screenshot of his header profile, which Bradley had blocked out in the original screenshot. The twitter user apologized to the pitcher in the tweet and in his bio, which reads “Im Sorry Archie Bradley.”
The search goes on.
After a day of golfing at the Pro-Am for the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Arizona Diamondbacks relief pitcher Archie Bradley realized his golf clubs were gone.
Now, Bradley thinks he found them.
He posted a screenshot of a bag of PXG golf clubs with his name stitched on for sale on OfferUp.

It largely matches his bag, which can be seen in an Instagram photo he posted during the WMO.

The picture used on OfferUp is clearly not from the same day. Bradley’s shoes at the WMO were white, while the ones of the golfer on the auction site were red. The towel on the bag is different. And most importantly, there’s a Diamondbacks logo on the WMO photo, but the bag on the auction posting does not have the logo under the name “Archie Bradley.”
But PXG is the same bag that Bradley uses — and the brand that surprised him with a replacement set earlier Thursday.
And, of course, the name stitched on the bag is very specific to one person whose clubs went missing Wednesday.
It’s unclear when Bradley added the insignia beneath his name on the bag, but it appears to check out.
