PGA Golfer’s Nearest Relief Is Where Most Men Need To Take Relief

During the Volvo World Match Play Championship, Nicolas Colsaerts found himself in a very unusual position following an errant tee shot. Colsaerts hit a poor tee shot out of bounds and was forced to take a drop. However, that drop was one which was actually found to be in a nearby restroom.

Devil Ball explains more:

Colsaerts was playing Graeme McDowell when his tee shot on par-4 10th hole flew well out of play in the hazard. A rules official came over and determined that the nearest point of relief was where most golfers go to take relief; in a nearby bathroom.

The ball was dropped inside the toilet, and Colsaerts then was able to take relief from that spot, which means he was able to re-drop his ball close by without penalty because it lay in an unplayable position. Colsaerts then hit his approach shot on the green and rolled in the putt for par.
