Man drowns while diving for golf balls at Ohio country club

WAVERLY, Ohio (AP) — A man has drowned while diving for golf balls in a pond at an Ohio country club.

Authorities tell The Columbus Dispatch ( ) that the 62-year-old man was diving in full scuba gear Tuesday at a golf course near the village of Waverly, in the southern part of the state.

The man’s son, who also was diving in the pond, called 911 and said that his father had gone down and hadn’t resurfaced.

It took dive teams about 20 minutes to find the man’s body in about eight feet of water, about 50 feet from the shore.

The man’s name has not been released.
