Golfers continue playing as ash cloud grows in Hawaii

HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK, HI (KGTV) -- They are photos almost too amazing to be real - people playing golf as an ash plume from the Kilauea volcano rises behind them. 

Since the beginning of May ash and lava have threatened homes on the big island, but that certainly hasn't deterred golfers. 

The United States Geological Survey said a recent lowering of the lava lake at the volcano's Halemaumau crater 'has raised the potential for explosive eruptions' at the volcano."
