Canyon Lake resident and avid golfer Bobby Gunter shared his lastest artwork, a 21-pound American flag made with 165 golf balls. First responders and military personnel were Gunter’s inspiration for creating the flag. “I was inspired by all the men and women who serve our country in so many different capacities,” he said.

The project required cutting 155 of the golf balls in half. “Made possible by my Indiana friend, Mike Mercier, who designed and built the ‘Gunter Gator’ that allowed the golf balls to be cut in half,” Gunter explained. Each ball is hand-painted and the 50 balls representing the states are screwed into the wood.

Gunter said he plans to hang the flag in his family room.
