Richard Brendan Globensky, the accused former Augusta warehouse coordinator, took artifacts including one of golf icon Arnold Palmer’s green Masters-winning jackets.Arnold Palmer’s green jacket was allegedly one of several things stolen from Augusta National Golf Club during a 13-year period. Former warehouse coordinator Richard Brendan Globensky is accused of moving millions of dollars in stolen artifacts.Between 2009 and 2022, the 39-year-old allegedly stole valuable Masters artifacts and transported it to Florida for selling. Globensky will plead guilty on May 15, according to court documents reported by the Chicago Tribune.One among the items allegedly stolen was golf great Palmer’s emerald Masters jacket. However, neither federal investigators nor Augusta National Golf Club officials have admitted that the green jacket is missing.The purported 1958 Masters-winning jacket was discovered during a 2022 FBI investigation. After detecting the jacket was gone, an Augusta National member contacted a collector known for finding unusual artifacts, and a private sale was arranged.A stunning $3.6 million was agreed upon for Palmer’s jacket, and after the buyer and collector met with the vendor and paid a deposit to acquire the jacket, FBI agents seized it, which was later authenticated as legitimate.Palmer is frequently recognized at Augusta for his four victories. The golf star died in 2016 at the age of 87, and the club draped his jacket over a chair sitting on the course during the Masters.This year, Scottie Scheffler won the Masters by four strokes, his second in three years. “I am most proud of how I fought this week,” Scheffler told ESPN. “This week was not like the last two years. I felt that I had some ups and downs, and that I made some mistakes that I shouldn’t have, but I recovered extremely well.”
