Pablo Larrazabal is a personal favourite of mine. Even though he isn’t very well known to golf fans in North America, he’s one of the best players in Europe and he’s never short on showing emotion. If you’re looking for a PGA Tour comparable, think of him like a Spanish version of Billy Horschel.

Larrazabal is in Malaysia this week for the Maybank Malaysian Open and during the second round, he was attacked by a massive amount of large hornets.

He talked to the media after his round and had this to say:

“They were three times the size of bees,” said Larrazábal “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.”
