Thanks to oober meatball413 for the tip!
The normal hazards at Annbriar Golf Course were the least of Mark Mihal's problems during his recent golf outing. The 43-year-old was standing in the fairway on the 14th hole when he was suddenly swallowed into a sinkhole.
"I was standing in the middle of the fairway," Mihal said Monday. "Then, all of a sudden, before I knew it, I was underground."Mark is lucky to walk away from the ordeal with only minor injuries.

One word: "Yikes"
This was in Illinois, not Missouri.
Talk about a hole in one...
get in the HOLE
You hit a ball and as it goes toward the hole. Before the ball either reaches the hole or stops, a sinkhole opens up and the hole and ball disappear into a subterranean chamber. Was the putt holed?
As you swing a sinkhole opens up and you and your ball disappear into the hole. Does the stroke count?
Wow, the possible Rules issues are endless!
Unfortunate. This is one of the best public courses in the Metro STL area. Too bad for the bad publicity as this has become national news.
