Now watch: Florida will pass a law banning diving for golf balls and half the retired guys down there will have to go on Welfare to make ends meet.
Jerry Gunderson started diving for golf balls in 1953, when he was 19. On Saturday, during a dive, he lost his life. He was 75. “I don’t know why he did it; it’s high risk, but he just loved it,” said his wife, Judith Gunderson. “He always said that’s the way he would go.”
Jerry Gunderson, whose passion for diving for golf balls led to the founding of a chain of seven golf-supply stores, was found dead in the center of the lake at the Deer Creek Country Club in Deerfield Beach, Fla., on Saturday. Gunderson, who was wearing scuba gear, drowned, officials said.
One of his sons died while diving for golf balls in a lake 27 years ago. “I lost my brother to the water, too,” said Jerry Gunderson’s other son, Marc, 53.
