ST. LOUIS (AP) - For many, golf is more than a game - it's a business opportunity. That's why Washington University in St. Louis is helping students take up a sport that can be a powerful tool for networking.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the university offers international students a course on how to play golf. How popular is the program that began last year? All 20 spots in this year's class were claimed within 12 minutes, and the wait list includes 60 students.

Students from India, China, Iran, Romania, South Korea and Mexico took time away from studying law, chemistry, business or engineering to take the golf class.

Instructor Mark Lewis, club pro at the Highlands Golf and Tennis Center in Forest Park, leads the class of mostly beginners.

BMW PGA Champioship underway

VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) — Two-time defending champion Luke Donald and Ryder Cup teammate Ian Poulter missed the cut Friday at the BMW PGA Championship.

Donald (72) was 6 over overall after two rounds in the cold and rain at Wentworth.

Donald's round of 78 Thursday was Donald's worst at Wentworth by four shots.

Poulter (76) is planning to make the most of his free weekend, going to the Champions League final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday and the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday.

Francesco Molinari (68) is the clubhouse leader with a 138 total, but overnight leader James Kingston has yet to start his second round.

Sinkhole swallows golfer at Annbriar

A Creve Coeur man is nursing a dislocated shoulder, but still counts himself lucky after falling into a sinkhole at Annbrier Golf Course in Waterloo on Friday.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 43 year old Mark Mihal had been standing on the 14th fairway when the ground swallowed him up. He landed in a bell-shaped hole, about 18-feet deep.

The course manager and Mihal's golfing companions used a ladder and some rope to pull him out.

Sinkholes are common in the St. Louis Metro area, but geologists say they are usually easy to spot because of a dent in the ground.
