Buzzing for a round of golf? Bees swarm 18th hole at Stowmarket!

You often hear about putting greens with a sting in the tail – but this is ridiculous.
There was drama on the eve of the Suffolk Amateur Foursomes Championship at Stowmarket Golf Club as a swarm of bees invaded the 18th green.
The winged invaders became attracted to the yellow flag on the green and had to be moved.
Club pro Jon Markham braved a few stings to take this picture, which might make your skin crawl.
Fortunately, the bees were moved without incident and the event could still take place on Sunday.

Third place went to Suffolk Open champion Sam Debenham, playing this year with Andy Cunningham (Stowmarket) in place of regular partner Jason Finch who was unfit. They were consistent with rounds of 72 and 74.
