Hundreds of thousands of golf balls are lost every day. With the total annual production of new balls estimated to be 1.2 billion, it is no surprise that the natural environment ends up receiving more and more golfing waste. In 2009, during a sonar survey to find the Loch Ness monster, more than 100,000 golf balls were discovered at the bottom of the loch. In a fictional future, golf balls might slowly merge with more natural shapes such as pebbles or eggs, or perhaps birds might privilege the ergonomic surface of the balls and evolve by mimicking their structure to ease the egg-laying process.
