    Darryl Dever, from Ohio, was stung at least 20 times in the head and neck at the Treetops Resort in Michigan.
    A golfer was stung to death by bees after being attacked as he was searching for his ball in a dense wooded area.

    Darryl Dever, from Ohio, was stung at least 20 times in the head and neck at the Treetops Resort in Michigan.

    The 64-year-old died on scene on Sept. 9 after struggling to breathe, Michigan State Police Sgt. Mark Tamlyn said.

    The keen golfer had gone searching for his ball near the second hole when the bees emerged from a hive in the ground.

    Although Dever had no known allergies to bees, the intensity of so many stings in a short time quickly can cause major medical issues and prove fatal.

    He reported feeling sick and then began experiencing trouble breathing.

    "You get enough stings and that will kill you," Tamlyn said, reported Michigan Live.

    Dever’s doctor friend believes he could have been saved, but unfortunately was not taken to an emergency room in time.

    Dever, from Powell, was a noted Statehouse lobbyist in Ohio and friends paid tribute to him.

    “I lost a friend and a mentor,” Adam Hewit told The Columbus Dispatch.

    “One of the things I always said about Darryl is anybody who can last this long in the business is a true professional.

    "He’ll be missed not only in his work, but in friendships and his humor."

    Treetops is a popular resort located in Northern Michigan, and is renowned for its five golf courses.

    “This truly is a tragedy that is so unexpected - nothing like this has happened at Treetops since the first golf course was built in 1987," said General Manager Barry Owens.

    "Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Darryl Dever during this very difficult time."

    R.I.P fellow golfer.

    I use to place a running lawn mower over those ground nests and then go inside for a cold one. Since the great honeybee die-off I've been giving those ground wasps a bye since I've noticed them in and around blooming flowers...

    ...I guess they pollinate too but I dunno for sure.

    I blame it on golf carts. Caddies are supposed to look for balls and die.

    Naturally, the golf course will be sued for failing to provide a safe golfing environment.

    More than likely it was Africanized Honey Bees and not 'Yellow Jackets'.
