    Clint 83 still dates some nice looking ladies :D It seems he has not lost a step.....

    Dirty Harry had his back — and for that Steve John is eternally grateful.

    John, 50, is chief executive officer of the Monterey Peninsula Foundation and tournament director of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He was talking to Clint Eastwood at the tournament’s volunteer dinner Wednesday night, when John started choking on a piece of cheese.
    Eastwood, 83, immediately leaped into action, lifting John off the ground as he successfully performed the Heimlich maneuver.

    “I don’t know how a guy that age picked up a guy my size, but he did,” John said in a phone interview this morning.

    Eastwood, known mostly for his acclaimed career as an actor and director, is a part owner of Pebble Beach and an active, behind-the-scenes presence at the tournament.

    “I gave him three good jolts, and that got it out,” Eastwood told the Carmel Pine Cone. “The look on Steve’s face was different than when somebody is just coughing or joking around. I looked in his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their very eyes. It looked bad.”
