Birdie after Hornets

And if soccer isn't your thing, check out this clip from the European golf tour.  This guy is playing in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and gets attacked by a swarm of hornets.  After whirling his jacket around to get rid of them, and trying to run, he eventually jumped in a lake.  And then got out, put on a dry shirt but kept his wet pants and shoes on and nailed two nice shots to birdie the hole.  Composure & muscle memory.  Well done!

  1. Crazy! But he played so well after.

  2. 20 stings! and so composed during the attack he's still just strolling along... I would have deployed some serious limbo tricks, sprinting, maybe dropping to the ground

    exactly right! -- and if you actually read all the way to end you find out that it's completely flipped for amateurs
