PGA Tour star, Max Homa‘s mind was off of birdies and onto bees during his round on Thursday — at least momentarily — ’cause one of the winged insects landed right on his ball … and didn’t want to move!!!
The funny scene all happened on the ninth green at Torrey Pines at the Farmers Insurance Open … when Homa went to line up his birdie putt.

Broadcast video shows as the 32-year-old golfer reached down to examine his ball, a bee was parked on it … and seemed rather cozy.
Homa tried — carefully, we might add — to get the little guy to move, but he wasn’t budging.
“He’s tyring to get rid of a frequent flyer there,” one of the event’s broadcaster’s joked.
Eventually, Homa got it to fly away — avoiding the stinger in the process.

Homa didn’t let the interaction bother him — he drained his ensuing 22-foot putt for a birdie … and is currently putting together a buzzworthy run (…sorry) in the tourney, sitting at No. 4 on the leaderboard.
