Remember that crazy story we brought you yesterday about that giant, 200-pound golf ball sculpture that was stolen from just outside the entrance to Muirfield Village on Monday?
Well, get this, WTVN in Dublin, Ohio, is reporting that a second golf ball sculpture was discovered missing on Tuesday. Thankfully, this second missing golf ball was returned early this morning.
The ball that was returned recognized Muirfield Village's partnership with Nationwide Children's Hospital.
Here's a tweet sent out by Dublin police on Thursday morning:
The giant golf ball that was missing from Avery-Muirfield & Tullymore has returned. We are still missing the one from Dublin & Memorial.

As stated in yesterday's piece, the people responsible for the first missing golf ball have until midnight Saturday to return it undamaged, or they will face felony charges.
