UPDATE: Holly Zachariah of The Columbus Dispatch reported that the giant golf ball sculpture stolen from outside Muirfield Village Golf Club after last week's Presidents Cup has been recovered, though not quite unharmed.
A passerby spotted the ball -- which, with tee, is about 5½ feet tall and weighs more than 200 pounds --today alongside the road in the 8200 block of Dublin Road, city officials said ... Sandra Puskarcik, the city's spokeswoman, wrote in a news release that officials are happy to have the artwork back but noted the city will now have to cover the cost of repairs for the damage: scratches and a foot-long crack.
The Dublin police had offered immunity in exchange for the safe return of the sculpture (reportedly worth about $2,500) by midnight Saturday, so no word yet on what, if any, continuing efforts will be made to bring the golf ball thieves to justice.
