Golfer Pablo Larrazabal of Spain had a pretty memorable round at the Malaysian Open over the weekend.

While on the fifth hole, he was attacked by a swarm of hornets. Yup, a swarm of HORNETS!

So, what’s a golfer to do when he’s being attacked by hornets? He jumps in the lake, of course!

That’s exactly what Larrazabal ended up doing after the hornets wouldn’t stop stinging him.

It worked and he was able to continue with his round, albeit with wet pants.

He said there were about three dozen hornets swarming around him.

Larrazabal said of the incident:

“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.”
