Voiles had been hired by the club to retrieve lost golf balls.Hernando Sheriff's dive teams were out searching the lake Tuesday morning, where Voiles' body was found submerged in nearly 8 feet of water shortly before 11 a.m. The lake is only about the size of a football field, and deputies estimate its maximum depth was only between 10 and 25 feet.

While I've have never had any desire to dive, I'm sure there are many people who are very passionate about diving.
Considering in the story it said he was a long time enthusiast, he must have been very passionate and appeared to be doing something he enjoyed.
Condolences to his family and friends.....

question I have is...
Are golf balls so valuable that it's worthwhile to pay a diver to retrieve them? Hard to imagine..IMHO
