After punching out of the rough on the fourth hole of the Royal Canberra Golf Club in Tuesday’s competition, Daniela Holmqvist felt a sharp stab in her ankle. When she looked down, she saw a large, furry, black creature with a red spot on its back just above her sock line. After quickly swatting it away, she doubled over in pain. “When I told the local caddies in my group what had happened, they got very upset and said it was a Black Widow, and immediately started looking for their phones to call the medics,” Holmqvist told Karin Klarstrom of Svensk Golf. As Holmqvist’s leg started to swell and the pain became intense, she made the quick decision to take matters into her own hands (she’d just been informed that a Black Widow bite can kill a child in as little as 30 minutes). She pulled a tee out of her pocket (“it was the only thing I had handy,” she told Svensk Golf) and used it to cut open the wound so she could squeeze out the venom and keep it from spreading inside her body. “A clear fluid came out,” she said. “It wasn’t the prettiest thing I’ve ever done, but I had to get as much of it out of me as possible.” It appears the do-it-yourself surgery was effective. An official was called and after weighing her options, Holmqvist decided to play on, despite severe pain and some anxiety about her well-being. She finished the round without incident but shot 74, which left her out of the tournament.

Yahoo (link has video) As reported by The Oregonian, Portland TV network KATU and a variety of other Oregon outlets, the father of a boys basketball player for Vancouver (Wash.) Skyview High was involved in an altercation with fans of his son’s opponent while leaving Camas (Wash.) High. Apparently spurred by that incident, the undisclosed parent in question took to Facebook to air his grievances against the Washington high school. More specifically, this is what he wrote on the social media site: “Camas fans!!!!! Worst in the league!!!!! I hope someone shoots up their school real soon!!!!!!!!” Though the man later added a second message intended to dispel concern about his initial post, Camas police quickly launched an investigation into the comment. No charges have been filed against the parent as of yet, but he has already been handed a no-trespass warning by the Camas School District, effectively banning him from stepping foot on any school property in the area again.
Thanks to ESPN Baton Rouge. How's it going?
