Wherever he went, Donny always was looking for a new golf course. One day, Donny was visiting his cousin in Waterloo, Illinois. There was a golf course there called Annbriar. The golf pro, Jon, invited him to the course to play 18 holes of golf. Donny wanted to play golf in Annbriar, Donny and Jon started to play. They played for $200 a hole. They were both good players, and Donny won a hole then Jon won a hole. When they got to the 18th hole, Donny had won $1000 and lost $800. He wanted to win on the 18th hole, so he started to play. Suddenly, there was a loud noise, and a great sinkhole appeared! Donny disappeared! Jon yelled, "Donny, what happened?" Donny screamed, "Help me! I need an ambulance!
