MCMURRAY, Pa. (AP) - Two southwestern Pennsylvania country clubs are reporting attempted scams involving golf shoes.

Peters Township police tell the (Washington) Observer-Reporter (https://bit.ly/1DPBE30 ) that a man came to the Rolling Hills Country Club on Aug. 5 with a pair of shoes he claimed to have won in a contest. The man said he wanted to return the shoes, left them behind the counter, and said his wife would be in later to collect a refund.

Pro shop workers later discovered the shoes had been removed from a display in the store. The man never returned.

Officials at Lone Pines Country Club in Washington say a man with a similar appearance did something similar Aug. 4, but instead claimed the shoes belonged to a dead relative. When he called back to get the shoes credited to his Visa card, they refused.
