After a normal approach and landing, with 40 degrees of flap set, the nose was being held off when a bump was felt, causing the pilot to believe that a failure had occurred with the nose gear. The pilot continued to hold the nose off until elevator control was lost. The nose then settled and the propeller struck the runway. The nose gear had failed after striking a hole in the ground that was obscured by weed growth.
