Video: Pro golfer leaps into lake after getting stung 20 times by hornets

Friday's second round at the Malaysian Open was an eventful one for Spain's Palo Larrazabal.

This is because the Euro Tour golfer was attacked by hornets and was stung 20 times before escaping to safety into a lake.

“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. My caddie told me to run, so I start running like a crazy guy, but the hornets were still there, other players told me to jump in the lake.”

Larrazabal received medical treatment and a new change of clothes before heading back to the hole and sinking a birdie putt. Amazingly, Larrazabal played so well after the attack that he even managed to make the cut. And you can bet he'll be extra leery of the hole he got attacked on in the next rounds.
