    I know a guy from the DC Metro area who pre- 9/11 shot a ton of fireworks off in a flight path near BWI Airport, They may still be looking for this guy....

    Hmmm.  Did his name happen to rhyme with "Nikon" by any chance?

    MioKontic:

    I was playing Merion a little while ago, and on the 4th hole, back pin, I put my approach just over 3ft to the right of the pin.  Ready to putt, I changed my camera to rear view (behind the hole).  Unfortunately I was concentrating on my putt, so didn't immediately notice a yellow object partly obscured by the minimap on the right.  The object looked like a yellow ball, about 2/3rds of it showing just under the minimap.  Because I had already pulled the meter I didn't get a chance to take a screenshot.  I ended the round and decided to go back to find it again.  Unfortunately on the 1st attempt I got the front pin, but for the 2nd attempt I played a practice round and chose Easy Pins.  I got to the 4th and it was the back pin.  I put my approach to the right of the pin, and no matter where I tapped the ball to in that same area (taking many mulligans) I could not find the phantom yellow ball.

    Has anyone else seen this?  I wonder if I might see it again if I moved the minimap to be on the left?  It's getting late now, so I might have another go at it tomorrow.

    Having spent some more time to the right of the pin (between 3-6ft and slightly downhill) I was not able to locate the mystery ball/object.  I have decided to give up the search, but if I ever do come across it again I'll try get a screenshot.

    Yes, it was exactly that.  I was wrong, it was under the camera, not the minimap.  I've never seen it before, but it looks like a ball?  Where did you see it?

    Your "found ball" looks a lot like the one I had shown before. I think it is a left over from the days when a member could pick up a random ball, but was not able to use it.
