The Golf Version of Bonnie and Clyde
By mustang6560 on 3/4/11
The title of this post is a stretch I know, but read below before you judge.
State police are investigating a strange case involving "decapitated" golf clubs in the Pittsburgh area.

State police say they have surveillance pictures of a couple who removed and stole the heads from 13 expensive drivers in five different incidents between Feb. 14 and 21 at Dick's Sporting Goods stores in Greensburg, West Mifflin, Robinson Township and Pittsburgh's South Hills suburbs.
You read that? A couple working together robbing golf retailers with no regard for the law? If this story blows up, maybe I can get credit for dubbing the name of these outlaws...

I am in no way condoning this. Robbery is a crime and the perpetrators should be arrested and put in jail. But, if you look at how they are doing this, it's actually really smart. What makes a driver a driver? The club head. And where's the security strip? The shaft. So by removing the club head they have the valuable piece of the club and they won't set off the security alarm on their way out.

They have surveillance of this couple so now it's just a matter of time before they get caught.

Not necessarily. They have surveillance of the guys who robbed my gym on monday (made off with my wallet, camera, jeans and shoes) but aren't really any closer to nabbing them. Truth be told, a lot of the video cameras in places like that tend to be a little grainy and difficult to zoom in to make out features. It's unfortunate, but i hope they do catch them. Punishment: tied to the 150 sign at the local driving range. :)

birdieXris says:
@bk- i was hoping for more driver useage. That's a good carry distance for amateur drivers and long irons. :)

@KTK - yea. They just snatched up my bag. Good thing they didn't check my jacket - they'd have made off with the wheels!!!! Jokes on them, the shoes - though nice looking and freshly polished - were 9.99 at payless. LOL. I miss the jeans though. they were nicely broken in and comfy> :(

Criminals are not that smart. The head might make the driver the driver. But the shaft counts for 80% of the price of the driver.
