Diving for lost golf balls in ponds netted this guy $15 million, he says

This man is making money off our errant shots.

Entrepreneur Glenn Berger said he was out of work 14 years ago when he decided to bounce around Florida courses and dive for golf balls. Ever since, Berger says he has made about $15 million doing this...which seems quite high. Is that possible?

Berger says he sells 1.3 to 1.7 million balls internationally per year, which is also a large number. That'd be an average of 5,480 balls or so per day. That's a ton of golf balls.

Plus, Berger says he dodges alligators and snakes for his golf balls. Talk about a warrior. For $15 million? We suppose that'd be worth it.
