Spanish golfer Pablo Larrazabal had a pretty fun, uneventful round during the Malaysian Open. Oh right, on the fifth hole he was attacked by a TRAVELING SWARM OF HORNETS. The quick-thinking Larrazabal jumped into a nearby water hazard to fend off the attack, which required treatment afterward for multiple stings.
“They were three times the size of bees,” he said. “They were huge and like 30 or 40 of them started to attack me big time. I didn’t know what to do. My caddie told me to run, so I start running like a crazy guy, but the hornets were still there, so the other players told me to jump in the lake.
“I ran to the lake, threw my scorecard down, took off my shoes and jumped in the water. It was the scariest moment of my career, for sure. I’ve never been so scared.”
Remarkably, he birdied the 14th hole.
There are alot of stories around the golf courses around the world but looks like i always have the crazy ones.Maybe i start to write a book—

The phrase “hornet attack” always makes me think of terrifying stories like this, which are no laughing matter.
