Winston-Salem, NC (WKOW) — In an apparent scam, donors to a charity golf outing in North Carolina were promised a round with Steve Stricker only to find out the Ryder Cup captain never even knew about the charity golf outing.

Stricker apparently became aware that someone was using his name when a golf outing participant reached out to him asking why he did not show up for a clinic.


Another person claiming to be the local pro at the golf course where the tournament was being played explained to Stricker on Twitter that a man claiming to be his cousin had promised Stricker would be in attendance. Stricker issued a statement after the scam became apparent.
