Adrian Meronk had his TrackMan and iPad stolen from the player's locker room at the Honda Classic on Thursday evening.
Meronk, who is making his third start on the PGA Tour this week, returned on Friday morning for Round Two when he discovered his TrackMan and iPad, worth more than $15,000, had gone missing from his locker.
The two-time DP World Tour winner informed Palm Beach Gardens police of the theft and officers soon reviewed video footage of the locker room on Thursday night.
After viewing the footage, police officers saw Matthew Archer, a 40-year-old who was working for one of the concession vendors at the Honda Classic, enter the locker room at 8.30pm wearing a 'black tank top'. The man left 14 minutes later wearing a grey golf shirt and he was carrying two bags.
Thankfully for Meronk, he was able to locate his TrackMan on his phone.
According to the police report, officers called Archer, who returned to PGA National and admitted he took the items, and "believed it was a laptop computer."
Archer was charged with burglary and grand theft and transported to Palm Beach County jail and Meronk’s TrackMan and iPad were returned to him.
