ST. LOUIS (AP) — Mark Mihal was having a good opening day on the links when he noticed an unusual depression on the fairway of the 14th hole at Annbriar Golf Club in southern Illinois. Remarking to his friends how awkward it would be to have to hit out of it, he went over for a closer look.

One step onto the pocked section and the 43-year-old mortgage broker was plunging into a sinkhole. He landed 18 feet down with a painful thud, and his friends managed to hoist him to safety with a rope after about 20 minutes.
