Here's a first: a tournament round was canceled because of bees.

Texas-Arlington men's coach Jay Rees called off the final round of the UTA/Waterchase Invitational after an estimated 60,000 bees infested the 18th hole at Waterchase Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. A beekeeper was called to the course and recommended that the final round be canceled. Players had completed about six holes in the third round of the scheduled 54-hole event.

"My assistant and I were made aware that a bee hive had opened up and had fallen from a branch overlooking the 18th green," Rees said in an email. "I got stung underneath my right eye. There were a couple of people that got stung, so it became a liability situation. ... With teams needing to catch flights, I canceled today's round for safety issues."

The tournament reverted to 36 holes. Wichita State won its second consecutive tournament to start the season after shooting 6-under 570 (294-276). The Shockers' Rafael Becker won the individual title with a 5-under 139 total (75-64).
