FORT WORTH (AP)  The final round of a college golf tournament has been called off because of an unusual hazard at the 18th green: bees.

Texas-Arlington’s UTA/Waterchase Invitational was canceled Tuesday after a limb from a tree holding an estimated 70,000 bees fell and exposed a beehive at Waterchase Golf Club in Fort Worth, Texas.

UTA spokesman Gregg Elkin said bees were swarming the area within minutes and several people were stung, though none seriously.

Elkin says a beekeeper was called in and recommended the area remain cleared for several hours. That prompted officials to call off the event early in the final round.

Results reverted to the two rounds played Monday. Wichita State won the event.
