Waterloo, IL (KTNV) -- A massive sinkhole nearly killed a golfer right in the middle of the fairway in Waterloo, Illinois.
43-year-old Mark Mihal was on the 14th hole at Annbriar Golf Course, when the earth opened up beneath his feet.
He was swallowed and sent plummeting 18-feet below the ground.
Fortunately his golfing buddies were standing nearby and sprang into action, creating a sling and using a ladder to save his life.
Mihal walked away from the terrifying ordeal with nothing but a fractured shoulder.
As for the hole in the green, workers are trying to stabilize the area and fill it up.
