Mo. golfer survives fall into Ill. course sinkhole

(Continued)

ST. LOUIS —

That region "is riddled with sinkholes," with as many as 15,000 recorded, Panno said.

The one Mihal survived has him debating whether returning to Annbriar is a long shot.

"It's a great course. I love the course," Mihal said, having played Annbriar a couple dozen times over the past decade. "But I would have a tough time probably walking down that hole again."

The 20-year-old course proclaims on its website that "each year new golfers are tested by our challenging 18 holes of golf."

There's no mention of its newest — and most challenging — hole.
