What does one do exactly with an enormous concrete statue of a golf ball on a tee?

Apparently some enterprising person in Ohio must know, since someone stole an enormous concrete statue of a golf ball on a tee from Muirfield Village G.C. on Monday.



The statue, whose value is estimated at $2,500, is almost 6 feet tall, weighs 200 lbs and is decorated with the Memorial Tournament logo. It's one of 18 balls sold for $1,500 to sponsors who commissioned artists to paint them for a public exhibition that runs through June 2014.

Dublin, Ohio, police say the Memorial Tournament has offered amnesty to the thief if they return the statue by Saturday night. Otherwise, they'll be prosecuted.
