Tour pro "beyond gutted" after thieves steal clubs from garage

Gary Evans

Former European Tour pro Gary Evans has described himself as "gutted beyond gutted" after thieves broke into his garage and stole clubs that he's used throughout his career. 

Evans, 50, took to Twitter to appeal for help after the incident last night at his Surrey home.

He tweeted:

Evans made over 350 appearances on the European Tour between 1991 and 2006, earning more than €3.3m in the process.

His best year was 2002, when he finished 21st on the Order of Merit and finished in a tie for fifth in The Open at Muirfield, just one stroke outside the four man play-off, eventually won by Ernie Els.

He revealed that the clubs he used in that event were among those stolen. 

The Callaway X-14 irons to which Evans refers look like this.

Anybody with any information as to the whereabouts of Evans' stolen possessions should call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
