Golfer Jumps in Lake to Escape Hornet Swarm, Then Birdies

Friday April 18th, 2014


You know that whiny meme by hockey fans about how their players are tougher than Lebron James? Spanish golfer Pablo Larrazabal tops them all. This dude got stung twenty times by giant hornets, escaped them Bugs Bunny-style by jumping in the course lake, and hopped right back out of the water to birdie.

He's going to keep playing this weekend, when he'll probably be the first person to golf (professionally) in a beekeeper suit.
