Scuba diver recovers Rory McIlroy's tossed 3-iron from bottom of lake

Friday, a frustrated Rory McIlroy deposited his 3-iron in the lake at Doral with a truly impressive throw. Saturday, some dude in a scuba suit showed up, plunged into the lake, and pulled it out:

As the announcers noted, McIlroy's club wasn't the only one tossed in the lake this weekend (and surely there are many more from past tossings), but apparently the recognizable grip makes it a definite match. I'm very curious what else was down there, and also curious if our diver hero encountered any gators down there. Like, maybe he had to wrest that club out of a gator's mouth. You can't prove he didn't.
