The ousted Ukrainian President has some lavish golf clubs. Well, not anymore.

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

When Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was ousted from power last week, it wasn't just his country's top office that he lost.

Yanukovych fled Kiev once protesters took to the street and parliament voted to remove him from office. But his golf clubs -- golden-colored and emblazoned with his initials -- remained with his own private golf course at his country estate for all the public to see. The driver is a Maruman Majesty, a Japanese-made club that rests somewhere in the $2,000 range.

So, the next time you're sad that you don't have golden golf clubs with your initials on them, just be grateful you don't have an entire country gunning for you.
