Ben Crane mannequin stops burglary in Denmark
Four-time PGA Tour winner Ben Crane can be classed as a golfer first, a member of parody boy band "Golf Boys" second. How about crime fighter third?

USA Today reports that Crane, or at least his likeness, prevented a major burglary taking place at a sports store in Denmark earlier this month.

A mannequin of Crane holding a golf club thwarted the late-night robbery Feb. 17 in the Copenhagen, Denmark, headquarters of Show Me Golfers, a golf app that Crane endorses.

According to ShowMeGolfers, the burlgar(s) broke a window to gain entry but did not take anything, fleeing at the shadowy image of Crane.

The alarm, however, went off, and upon arriving at the scene, police officers pulled their guns on the Crane lookalike and asked him to drop his gun before realizing it was a mannequin.

No one — not even the mannequin — was hurt in the incident.

"I am pumped. This is awesome," Crane enthusiastically said Monday at the World Golf Championship-Accenture Match Play Championship.

"It's weird, I'll tell you that. But it's great news. And I technically saved a major robbery. When the cops got there, they soon realized I had it all under control."
