So let’s say you have a chance to make up to a few million dollars a year as a diver.

The downside? You’d be diving alone (not usually a good thing) in poor visibility and could come up against an angry alligator.

Would you do it?

Apparently there’s a whole industry of divers who do just that, only they dive in golf course lakes and retrieve lost golf balls, which the subsequently clean and resell back to the golf courses for about a dollar per ball.

One such diver, Glenn Berger, claims he’s made about $15 million since starting his career.

Check out the video below, along with a story about Berger from the news.com.au website.
