Golf ball diver found dead at Florida golf course

Authorities are investigating the death of a diver hired to retrieve golf balls from a country club in the Tampa Bay area.

Forty-three-year-old David Voiles was found Tuesday in a lake on the course's 10th hole Tuesday morning.

He was reported missing about 7 p.m. Monday. Hernando County Sheriff's officials say the certified diver arrived at the Sherman Hills Golf Course earlier in the day to collect golf balls from the bottom of a lake.

His vehicle was still in the parking lot and the golf cart he used was beside the lake. Pasco County Sheriff's Office divers searched the lake.

The cause of death could not be determined immediately.
