John says Friday the Hollywood actor saved his life. He says Eastwood immediately saw that he was in trouble and lifted the 202-pound tournament director three times about a foot off the ground.
Eastwood told The Carmel Pine Cone it was his first time using the Heimlich maneuver.
Eastwood is the chairman of the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, which runs the popular PGA Tour event. He presents the trophy on Sunday.
