Aug 8, 2013; Rochester, NY, USA; Pablo Larrazabal tees off on the 1st hole during the first round of the 95th PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club. Mandatory Credit: Mark Konezny-USA TODAY SportsGolfer Pablo Larrazabal won't soon forget the 2nd round of the Malaysian Open.

He didn't have an epic performance or anything, but he did have a rather scary battle with a large group of hornets while he was playing the 14th hole.
 
"They were three times the size of bees. 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."

Fortunately, he's fine and was able to finish out the round. He had to borrow a shirt, since the hornets were apparently infuriated by his original shirt, and he finished the round while his pants dried.
