At this point, details are unknown. Some questions are obvious: Was the diver hired by the course? It would be a serious lapse in security to have a fully wet-suited man with a breathing tank slip unnoticed through the gates.

Not that we're saying anything's fishy. Just check eBay tomorrow to be sure.

In any case, it's cool that the diver was able to find McIlroy's lost piece of equipment, especially since Marcel Siem reportedly launched one of his own clubs into the drink earlier in the day.
