Two days after six sets of golf clubs belonging to a Michigan high school girls' team were stolen from the coach's car, Kid Rock offered to swing to the rescue.

"I was just stunned," coach Claire Neff told the Associated Press after receiving a call from the rocker on Wednesday.

When the call came, Neff asked to whom she was speaking. "Kid Rock," was the reply, reports the Detroit Free Press, which first broke the story of the robbery. "My girls are going to go ballistic," Neff said.

Having read the article about the theft, Rock (real name: Robert Ritchie), 36, a native of Romeo, Mich., told the coach he would provide new custom golf clubs to replace those belonging to Neff and the five players from Milan High School in Ypsilanti, Mich.

Rock spoke to pro golfer John Daly, who, in turn, suggested that he contact manufacturer TaylorMade Golf, which has agreed to send the clubs by the end of the week. Neff also said that Rock advised giving all the credit to TaylorMade and Daly.

Besides the gift from Rock, Neff said that about 40 other people have called her offering donations.
