Severe drought continues to impact the Midwest. Some parts of Kansas are more than 8 inches behind their normal rainfall levels. The results have been devastating to crops this summer.

But some are able to take advantage of the dry conditions to do some good. Greenskeeper Russell Hurt of Baxter, Kan., has been collecting thousands of golf balls from drying water hazards at the Baxter country Club. Once cleaned and restored, the golf balls are almost good as new. The club is now donating the used by still usable balls to charity.
