Here are the photos with the yardstick. It was kind of hard considering it was on the roof and I'm pretty short.
I'll post the map with the golf courses to see if anyone can figure out which one, or from which direction the ball came from.

If I was driving my daughter and something hit my car with a loud BAM, I wouldn't wait until I get home to check it out.
Were you not concerned about the state of your vehicle and it's safety?
Glad you're safe though, and just be glad you weren't in a CONVERTIBLE eh.

If it was golf ball, and it was traveling at that velocity, impacting at that angle, the vehicle traveling at 70-75 mph, and it's trajectory came from the front of the vehicle, would it have been possible for it to ricochet not only off the roof, but the windshield also?edit on 1-7-2011 by BrandrTorny because: Spelling error

If I were you I would figure out exactly where I was at on the maps above when the impact happened. More than likely the nearest golf green is the one that the ball came from.
I would also take photos and obtain three estimates for the body damage and the windshield damage and write up a very matter of fact letter to the golf club that you believe is responsible, including day and time, and where you were at via aerial map shot -
The driver of the car chose to continue driving on down the road, so now all responsibility lies on that driver. The driver does not know exactly where this occurred. It is nothing more than a guess that maybe it might have been a golf ball.
Since I disagree with you advising to disguise a false claim, by writing it up in a 'matter of fact' way, I might just go ahead and email a link to this thread to 'Fenton Farms' and to 'Tyrone Hills.'
Did not stop = does not know the exact cause = driver's fault/driver's wallet.
