If each of us think about our golf club and sometimes that we or our fellow players confuse the water with the green, the number of golf balls lost is very big.

For thisreason is born the figure of sub course, an addict to immersion in the lake, who obtained a good economic return, especially considering the high multiplication factor .

Around 2000 Glenn Berger began to dive in the waters of Florida, recovering thousands of balls, for a total gain that has been estimated at $ 15 million.

Berger became a diver course, and during his dives has also found clubs (it happens, remember the epic launch iron 5 by John Daly at the PGA 2015?), Golf carts, met snakes and, in some cases, alligators. Also dangerous activity so, given the often murky waters.

The recycled golf balls we buy in a store at a lower price, are from sub golf. Their job is to exploit the inability of amateur golfers and the difficulty of the course!

According to Forest Rothchild, another specialized diver, the balls in the water are as a deposit on a bank account: it is able to recover about 4,000 balls a day, multiply a little 'ten cents for each (there is a fee to the club and a license to be taken) and the fortune is made!

But what happens to the balls? Through a process they are washed and reconditioned, and then sold in the shops or online.
