Ryder Cup charity mementos belonging to Europe captain Paul McGinley have been stolen from his car, along with his golf clubs.

The San Francisco Chronicle claimed the Irishman, who was playing in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, went from San Francisco airport to Ocean Beach to get some fresh air and have lunch.

When he returned to his car outside the restaurant, he found the back window shattered and his clubs, travel bag, a carry-on bag, travel documents and passport stolen, as well as Ryder Cup items he had set aside for a charity auction.

"All my stuff was taken," McGinley told the newspaper.

"I was just disappointed. I had only been in the country an hour and a half.

"It can happen in any country, or city in the world. I thought it was safe, and it didn't cross my mind."
