Golf ball marks from heaven and hail
No, those indentations in that poor putting green (shown above) aren't due to countless inconsiderate golfers (though I've played on some greens resembling that). Those marks come courtesy an aerial assault from the heavens.
The National Weather Service in Wichita, KS reports a thunderstorm produced a massive hailstorm in the vicinity of that golf course on September 15. In some areas, the hail stones were larger than softballs. The biggest stone had a circumference of 15.7 inches (39.9 cm), weighed 1.1 pounds (0.5 kg) and had a diameter of 7.75 inches (19.7 cm), a new state record for Kansas.
