PHOTO: Man saves golf clubs – and nothing else – from his burning car


You need to have your priorities right in life.

An Australian man was driving in Wendouree when he realized his car was on fire.

"He was driving, then heard the noise and then saw the flames and smoke," saide Ballarat City CFA Senior Station Officer Shane Phillips, according to the Ballarat Courier. "He removed himself from the car."

Before his hatchback became too engulfed in flames, the man saved his golf clubs from his car. Apparently, he either had a tee time to make or just loved his clubs because there are plenty of people who would happily file the insurance claim to get some new sticks.
