PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Clint Eastwood added another role at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am – life saver.

Eastwood attended a volunteer party on the eve of the event when he noticed tournament director Steve John choking on a piece of cheese. The 83-year-old actor quickly performed the Heimlich maneuver Wednesday night.

“I was drinking water and eating these little appetizers, threw down a piece of cheese and it just didn’t work,” John said Friday. “I was looking at him and couldn’t breathe. He recognized it immediately and saved my life.”
