PEBBLE BEACH, CALIFORNIA- Actor and movie director Clint Eastwood can add rescuer to his credits after he used the Heimlich maneuver to save a man who was choking.

He was at a volunteer party for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am when he saw golf tournament director Steve John choking on a piece of cheese.

John says the actor saved his life by lifting him three times about a foot off the ground.

Eastwood is 83 and and John weighs 200 pounds.

Eastwood is the chairman of the Monterey Peninsula Foundation that runs the PGA Tour event and says its the first time he's performed the Heimlich.
