The victim's mug shot
Police Blotter: Stolen Gigantic Golf Ball
By Torleif Sorenson on 10/9/13
(Cue the Police Squad theme...)

Shocking but true, the City of Dublin (OH) Division of Police is on the lookout for a stolen golf ball. A gigantic one.

The victim was on display at the intersection of Dublin Road and Memorial Drive in Dublin, 0.84 miles east-southeast of Muirfield Village Golf Club, during the Presidents Cup this past weekend. It was one of 18 enlarged balls and matching stands, part of a temporary art exhibit called "18 Drives Through Dublin." Since the golf balls were sold at $1,500 each, the value of the stolen ball makes this crime a felony.

It really is "Grand Theft Golf Ball."

Muirfield Village Golf Club is, however, offering a mulligan: If the ball is returned undamaged by midnight October 12, they will not press charges.

As a public service, we at oobgolf have provided an undated photograph of the victim, which appears to be roughly four feet in diameter. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide the exact compression, number of dimples, or exact cover material of the victim.

Information regarding this or any other crime in Dublin can be reported online to the City of Dublin Division of Police.

5 minutes is up. That's a penalty stroke.

If it takes that long to find it, most of the time it's unplayable anyway. Another stroke added.

Maybe it was a Top Flite, and someone just threw it away.
