J.R. Smith’s golf adventure took an unbeelievable turn on Tuesday. Smith, who is participating in his first college golf tournament for North Carolina A&T, stepped on a beehive during the first round of action. As a result of stepping on the beehive, Smith required medical attention.

Smith was playing on the 12th hole at the Elon Phoenix Invitational in Burlington, N.C. when the ordeal occurred. According to Elon University student video engineer Jared Bunder via Twitter, Smith went into the woods to find his ball on the 12th hole when he stepped on the beehive.

There were images from the tournament that showed Smith appearing to be in some pain. Smith received assistance from the medical team that was on site, but eventually resumed play after the ordeal. According to Bunder, Smith allowed other players to play through while he was being checked out.

Smith ended up finishing the 12th hole with a double bogey, but did shoot for par on the ensuing hole. The former Cleveland Cavaliers guard recorded scores of 78 and 83 during the first two rounds of the tournament and sat in 81st place entering Tuesday’s action.

As was evident in his NBA career, Smith has never failed to get into some hijinks during games.
