It's A Sign!
By Kickntrue on 2/24/09
This is interesting so I'm posting it. At the same time, I can't believe it made "real news" anywhere. A golf ball was found inside a tree in the UK recently. The tree had grown around the ball for many years, and when the tree fell down it was being cut- and the ball was found. A cut either way by a couple inches and the ball would have never been discovered.

They are making the slice into the club's "hole-in-one" plaque.

Bonus points for anyone who can guess what kind of ball it is by the profile view.

Based on the number of rings outside that ball, I'm thinking Nike wasn't making balls when that thing got lodged in there.

a 3 piece solid core ball.... looks fishy to me
did they even exist 15 years ago?

the cut also looks very "clean" for a chainsaw

Well it does appear to be a 3 piece solid core ball. I'm thinking from the amount of wood grown around it, that ball wouldn't have existed but rather would have a wound rubberband core like we used to cut apart when we were kids(40 years ago). However, it was a conifer(evergreen) and that can grow rather quickly, but that's a big honkin slice of wood! That was a big tree. I don't know how long solid core balls have been around and how long it takes a conifer to grow, white pines can get pretty darn large in 15-20 years.
