Clint Eastwood made Steve John's day when he saved the golf tournament director from choking to death. The Associated Press via MSN reported on Feb. 7 that the actor went into rescue mode on the evening before the 2014 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

The 83-year-old, whose wife recently filed for divorce after Dina Eastwood was in rehab for depression, was attending a party of volunteers when he reported spotted John eating and then choking on a slice of cheese. Eastwood immediately went into action, performing the Heimlich maneuver.

This all went down at the Monterey Conference Center on the coast of Northern California on Wednesday night. In light of the fact that Steve John is said to weigh about 202 pounds, that was a hefty move on the action hero's part. In fact, Clint threw the golf tournament executive up the air three times in order to help him breath.

Of course, after coming out of his horrible conundrum, John gave credit where credit was due: To Clint Eastwood who saved the tournament director from choking at his own PGA event. That, and Eastwood had never performed the Heimlich maneuver ever before in his long and stories life.

Talk about a life-saving situation in spades.
