Golfer Pablo Larrazabal Forced to Jump in Lake During Hornet Attack at Malaysian Open, Still Birdies Hole [Video]

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 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.

Remarkably, he birdied the 14th hole.

Watson’s little guy, Caleb, was noticeably absent in 2012 but this year the emotional Watson got to drink in the glory with his entire family in tow. The wife, the kid.

Watson withstood a hot start by 20-year-old prodigy Jordan Spieth, created a four-shot swing on the final two holes of the front nine and held on down the stretch to win his second Masters. A final-round, three-under 69 got Watson to eight under overall, three shots ahead of Spieth, who carded a level par 72.

Leading by three shots on the 15th hole, Watson opted to blast a difficult shot over water instead of laying up.

He tapped in for par after leaving a chip shot short to maintain his edge. Following a par on 16, the long-hitting lefty airmailed his tee shot to the left but was able to execute a fine second shot to save another par and eliminate all intrigue.

With the win Watson becomes just the eighth golfer ever to win two green jackets in a three-year span and the third since 2000 (Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson).

Masters Tournament Re-Imagined as Putt-Putt Golf in ‘Mini Masters’ [Video]

 

mini-masters-leaderboard The Masters is awesome. It’s golf. It’s a beautiful golf course. It takes place at the beginning of the summer. It would be hard for it to get much awesome-er. Unless they put mini-golf obstacles on the greens.

Someone decided to add obstacles to a few of the putts from the 2014 Masters, resulting in the very entertaining video above.
