Clint Eastwood Saves Choking PGA Tour Executive's Life

Golf exec surely feeling lucky after the Oscar-winning filmmaker successfully performed the Heimlich maneuver

When possibly choking to death on a piece of cheese, you've got to ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?”

If Clint Eastwood is in the house, the answer is yes.

The Oscar-winning director and “Dirty Harry” star saved a man's life Wednesday night by using the Heimlich maneuver, according to multiple media reports. In his guise as the chairman of the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, Eastwood attended a volunteers party at the Monterey Conference Center on the eve of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, which is a PGA Tour event.

It was there that tournament director Steve John began choking on a piece of cheese.

“I saw that look in his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their eyes,” Eastwood told local newspaper the Carmel Pine Cone.

Eastwood sprung into action and performed the Heimlich maneuver on the 200-pound tournament director, whose credited the 83 year-old Hollywood legend with saving his life.

“He's strong,” John told the Pine Cone. “The cheese popped out, and I was fine.”

Eastwood said it was his first time using the Heimlich in a real life-threatening situation. ”I gave him three good jolts, and that got it out,” Eastwood told the Pine Cone.

Warner Bros. will release Eastwood's next film, “Jersey Boys,” this summer. The director will then segue to the Bradley Cooper movie “American Sniper.”

    §Guess Mr JOHN can now truly say: “Go ahead: Make My Day.” BTW: Rather than
    that lame empty chair routine, why couldn't CLINT have put a “Heimlich” on MITT (who, while a poor campaigner might have made a great President) I'm just sayin'.

      He sure as heck would have made a hundred times better one than what we're stuck with now!

    the old “movie star saved my life” meme? That went out with Tom Cruise when he was “clear.” Don't break your hand patting yourself on the back, bitch..O, I mean, Clint.

    Love this man! One of the most likeable, ballsy guys in Hollyweird – at least he's not like the majority of those fruit and nuts that think they walk on water. He's real, loves his country and is not afraid to stand behind his beliefs. Go Clint… you're still one of the most macho guys out there!

      guess you missed him talking to an empty chair.

      don't get me wrong, Obama is an empty suit, but that was just weird…

        I didn't miss it. I thought what he did was great – Obama never goes to meetings or has daily briefings and that's what Clint was pointing at – he's never there doing the job of a president – only when it comes to his socialist agenda.
