The only reason why we're joking in the headline is that the dude is fine — he only dislocated his shoulder. His friends were able to rescue him without much struggle, even though we bet it was terrifying!!
A golfer, walking along like golfers do, disappeared into an 18 foot sinkhole while playing a round of golf with some buddies.
Just kidding! He actually saw an unusual depression in the course and decided it was worth his time to go check it out, just to see how awkward it would be to have to hit from! As soon as he stepped on it, that's when he fell!
Here's what he said:
"I feel lucky just to come out of it with a shoulder injury, falling that far and not knowing what I was going to hit. It was absolutely crazy."
He's SO LUCKY!!
He does have pretty badass friends, though — one of them climbed into the hole, used his sweater to stabilize the fallen golfer's shoulder, tied a rope around him, and had the rest of the fellas hoist him out of the hole!
The golf course is going to remain open while geologists salivate over rocks and dirt, which is what they do best!
