The depths of human behavior never cease to amaze, and this is a story that only confirms some people have no heart.
Keith Kee is a Special Olympics athlete who loves playing golf. Unfortunately, he's now without golf clubs because of a thief.
Kee and his Special Olympics coach John Sprott were in Barlett, Tenn., on Wednesday to play nine holes at a local course. Kee put his clubs, which were donated to him by a local pro, outside the pro shop before going inside. When he returned, his Srixon clubs, set in a bag clearly marked with the Special Olympics name and logo, were gone.
“With Special Olympics on the bag, whoever stole them must have known who they belong to. For me, that’s more egregious than just stealing someone’s set of clubs,” Sprott told WMC-TV in Memphis.
As you can see in WMC Action News 5’s video below, Kee seems remarkably calm about the whole ordeal, handling the loss a lot better than most people would. Then again, Kee says that he loves playing golf no matter his level of play, so his ability to avoid being frustrated is pretty incredible.
Unfortunately, there are no leads to catching the thief or tracking down the clubs. For now, Kee is playing with a mix-and-match set of Sprott's spare clubs.
This is despicable.
