Police identified the man Friday afternoon as Johnny Watson, 74. His body was found at around 9 a.m. Friday in the pond on the fifth hole of the Mill Creek Golf Course in Salado.
“We received a call about a man who slipped into the water trying to retrieve a golf ball and drowned trying to get out,” police Chief Jack Hensley said Friday afternoon.
“He didn’t know how to swim,” Hensley said. Watson was in the water for about 10 minutes, Hensley said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
