Get in the hole! Astonishing moment a 15ft sinkhole swallowed a GOLFER as he walked along the fairway of course in St Louis

    Mark Mihal was with friends at the Annbriar Golf Course near Waterloo when he suddenly disappeared into the turf on the fairway of the 14th hole
    He landed on a pile of mud in the cavernous space that could have fit up to 10 people and looked like it was about to sink further
    Mortgage banker was hoisted out of the cave by his friends who climbed down a ladder to tie a rope around his waist
    Suffered a dislocated shoulder and has vowed not to return to the course
