There usually aren't any defenders in the game of golf but that wasn’t the case for European Tour player Pablo Larrazabal out on the green this week!
In the middle of the Malaysia Open’s second round, Larrazabal was suddenly swarmed by giant angry hornets!
The 30-year-old Spanish player tried to fight them off but there proved to be far too many of the stinging insects!
He finally ran to the lake along the 14th hole and dove into the water to escape!
The golfer admitted afterwards:
"I've never been so scared! I felt something on my nose. I swatted it away and suddenly…they were not bees, they were three times the size of bees."
After drying off, Larrazabal received several injections to try and treat the 20 stings he received! But despite this horrifying experience, he decided to play on!
And he did AH-Mazing!
Pablo finished at 68 for the day, four under par which included two birdies AFTER his run in with the hornets!
He is still 11 shots behind the leader with competition continuing in Kuala Lumpur today. But even if he doesn’t end up winning, he’s no doubt given us the most memorable moment of this tournament!
Ch-ch-check out the hornet attack as it happened in the video (below)!
