During his second round of the Maybank Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur, Pablo Larrazábal found refuge in a lake after being attacked by hornets.

He was playing the par-5 fifth hole when the dangerous insects were seemingly attracted to his shirt. "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." Naturally, he birdied the hole and shot 4-under 68. "The referees and a doctor took me aside and gave me a couple of injections and told me to relax. After the injections I felt a lot better and could continue. Without the help of the referees I couldn’t have finished the round, because I was in no state to play golf."

In a feature at Golfweek.com, Jim McCabe explained why Steve Marino hadn't competed in 2014 until his first round of the RBC Heritage.

After missing the cut at the OHL Classic of Mayakoba, the final stop before the holiday break, Marino injured his left leg after jumping onto a sandbar from his boat. He fractured the fibula and tore ligaments in his ankle. Note that this is the same leg on which he had surgery in his knee in October of 2011. He also received a stem call injection to aid in the healing process. Only recently was he comfortable in walking 18 holes in competition. "I feel really good," Marino said. "I think I'm ready." Suddenly, his opening 72 at Harbour Town looks a little better.

William McGirt crafted a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage, earning a piece of the overnight lead.

We've stated it here before, but it happened again today. McGirt found another gear with his putter despite hitting only 11 greens in regulation. He connected four birdies beginning at the second hole, the last three of which measuring 11 feet, 14'9" and 20'11", respectively. He made the turn with another birdie conversion at 9, this time from 11'6". After a bogey-6 at 15, his only blemish of the round, the North Carolina native rolled in a par save from 12'4" at 16, and then holed out for birdie from a bunker 14 yards out at the par-3 17th. At last check, his strokes gained-putting split, which doesn't include the jarred bunker blast, sat at a gaudy 4.757. He arrived at Harbour Town ranked 32nd on the PGA TOUR in SG-P, but has just two top 25s in 14 starts.

With a 5-under-par 31-35=66 for his opening round of the RBC Heritage, Scott Langley shares the clubhouse lead.

Since a solo third at Copperhead five weeks ago, Langley is 0-for-2. That mini-drought figures to end at Harbour Town where he hit 12 greens in regulation and circled seven birdies today. He holed six of them on the front nine, but the only of notable distance measured 17 feet at the par-3 14th. He also salvaged a par from 11'1" at 3.

Greg Chalmers withdrew from the RBC Heritage during his opening round due to a back injury.

The lefty split the expansive fairway at the par-4 18th hole, his ninth of the round, and then walked off. He was 5-over-par through eight holes with no par breakers, three bogeys and a double. It's just his third mid-tournament WD in 349 PGA TOUR starts. It drops him to 8-for-14 on the season. He started the week slotted 109th in FedExCup points.

Matt Kuchar spun a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage and assumed outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Once again, he shook off the previous week's disappointment. He hit 14 greens and circled five birdies, including conventional conversions from 23'7" and 17'8" at the 13th and second holes, respectively. He poured in a walk-off five-yarder from the fringe for his final birdie at the par-4 ninth. Of course, we'll await what happens on Sunday as the final rounds have been his nemesis of late. In his last five starts, he's closed with 74, 74, 75, 72 and 74, the last of which at the Masters. The positive spin is that he's putting himself in contention time and again, so the theory is that it's only a matter of time before he slams the door, but gamers will settle for a respectable conclusion over the fade.

GolfChannel.com reported today that Jarrod Lyle is planning to return to competition at the Web.com Tour's Price Cutter Charity Championship on Aug. 7-10, not the Midwest Classic two weeks prior.

Whatever actually happens, it's great news that he's full steam ahead on his competitive comeback.
