Black Widow Bites Golfer (Video) Female Golfer Daniela Holmqvist Uses Tee to Extract Venom

Black widow bites golfer - she finished round after using a golf tee to extract the venom.

Daniela Holmqvist (pictured above, watch video below) is a rookie golfer currently playing on the Europenan Women's Tour and was in Australia participating in a qualifying event for the ISPS Handa Australian Open in Canberra.

During her qualifying round saw a "redback spider on her lower leg and then felt a sharp pain above her left ankle," reports Golf magazine.

The pain from a bite like this is bad enough, but such bites from a black widow can be dangerous, and occasionally fatal, so the former Cal golfer alerted her fellow playing competitors and formulated a plan.

Deadspin reports:

"As Holmqvist's leg started to swell and the pain became intense, she made the quick decision to take matters into her own hands (she'd just been informed that a Black Widow bite can kill a child in as little as 30 minutes). She pulled a tee out of her pocket ("it was the only thing I had handy," she told Svensk Golf) and used it to cut open the wound so she could squeeze out the venom and keep it from spreading inside her body."

"A clear fluid came out," she said. "It wasn't the prettiest thing I've ever done, but I had to get as much of it out of me as possible."

All of the pain and drama were for naught, however.

She finished the qualifying event for the ISPS Handa Australian Open in Canberra with a round of 74, just two shots shy of qualification.
