Yet another vote for body glide. If you don't want to worry about dealing with it afterward, put it on before you go, and you'll be good! In my prior life (read: before a foot injury sent myself looking for a new activity) I was a runner, and it was definitely helpful. I hope to get back to running too, if I could manage to break away from all of my golf thoughts to focus in that direction again. ;)

you could also slick the boys and the rest of the "undercarriage" up with some vaseline. Pretty decent job at preventing chafing. I've tried compression shorts and all that other stuff but it does you no good if they don't fit absolutely snug. If you get a pair, buy some with short legs and not ones that come down near the knee.

Something tells me that if I lubed up the undercarriage with Vaseline I'd have a LOT of trouble concentrating during my round. I've got enough stuff moving where it's not supposed to during my swing without the family jewels acting like otters on a mudslide!

No missing someone on the course with this problem. Just look for the guy walking like he just got off a horse. My brother and I affectionately call it crotch rot!
I have lost 75 pounds over the last two years and it isn't a problem for me anymore, but when it was I sprayed Tenactin before the round a it helps dry things out and leaves a powdery coating. If it did happen, on the advice of a friend who was a paratrooper and used to get it with running, I put diaper rash ointment on it after a shower and it would be gone the next day.

This is why I NEVER play without compression shorts.

I'm a pretty skinny guy, (6', 170) and this is still an issue for me if I just wear regular boxers.

Baggy cargo shorts Add baby powder as needed..

OT. Thought I had a hernia or worse many years ago. My doc wanted to do some X-rays and test. My wife mentioned it to her family doctor, a guy with decades of experience, and his advice was to try wearing boxers instead of briefs. He was one smart doc.

otters on a mudslide, funny stuff.

Problem has been solved. Picked up some compression shorts at Kmart of all places for 9.99. They had black starter brand compression shorts that are great and you can't beat the price. Also I picked up some of the Lanacane anti chaffing gel. It's not cheap its around 6 to 8 bucks for a small tube but what golf related item is cheap! The tube of gel seems like it should go along way tho. Seemed to do the trick! Thanks for the suggestions and I hope mine can help out someone out with my suggestions too. I've been walking and playing the past week and no problems!

That's a great deal, especially because Starter is owned by Nike. So you basically bought Nike shorts without the swoosh.

Really I didn't realize starter was made by Nike. They are very nice, simple but nice. You can prolly even pick them up at Wal-Mart even because I've seen starter items at walmart.

As a matter of fact I just found the same compression shorts online at Wal-Mart. For $10! Good buy http://www.walmart.com/ip/Starter-Me...i_sku=11026750

This will sound wierd, but after you have chafed, use diaper rash oinment! This works great and it very effective if you are on a long golf weekend and chafe on the first day, it will get you through the rest of the weekend! Just don't buy the brand name stuff, buy from CVS or Walgreen, your buddies won't know what it is, save you from catching a lot of crap!

Butt Paste works wonders after the damage has been done. I usually wear boxer briefs and Under Armour compression shorts when Im walking. When I ride it usually isn't an issue. Just make sure to shower/put on dry clothes after the round. I usually get the bad rash after sticking around for an hour or two for beer, sitting in my sweaty clothes.

They may give you crap at first, but you're the one laughing when they cant walk normal.

We all know what that wide stance walking/wobble looks like after the rash comes lol

    • Would be tough to golf in Michigan...
    • I grew up playing in the wind in the St. Louis area.  Qualifying for the high school golf team or the university team (scant miles from St. Louis) in the Spring was hell!  I am no longer there and I will no longer play in the wind.  Period.  Even when I play WGT I set the wind at "low". But I will play in the snow.
    • I get annoyed with the dewy 7 AM grass grabbing the face of my clubs when I chip.  I marvel at the wind owning my would-be solid strikes.  Shots with altitude changes make it hard for me to judge distance. Slope-infested greens, insane heat, fairways in need of some rain, foggy mornings, etc, all create challenges. Which ones do you hate to encounter? Which do you thrive in? What stories can I get from you about your experiences in difficult conditions? Do you consider these conditions part of the game? A fun additional challenge? Something to be avoided when you can?
    • Speaking of white spray paint... a few years ago I carried a can of paint in my bag and painted the upper earth/dirt portion of the 4th hole cup at my local course (using a pre-cut template so no paint got on the putting surface) to resemble how they paint the cups for PGA events.  My golfing friends are essentially non-observant and didn't know this was done... which gives the pros a bright white target to aim at. An advantage we mortals don't get. They all loved putting at that cup.  I'm sure the greenskeepers were a bit surprised the next morning.
    • Full disclosure this is my 1st set of clubs fit to my swing. Im fairly new to consistently playing golf but now after a few lessons and plenty of practice have a fairly consistent swing. So i had an iron/wedge fitting done yesterday outside on grass and landed on I210s w/ KBS stiff shafts (tried T100/200, CF19, Epic, JPX 919 and I500 same day). Both the DG 120 and Project X were sp8nning too much. The fitter also recommended the following: 1) -1/2" shaft length. This has to do more with a small adjustment on the lie angle. Tape showed me center but slight toe action. My miss is left and ball flight starts a little left. His recommendation was to choke down and all balls went straight. 2) 1 degree strong from standard loft.  7 iron would carry 168 with club head speed of 91 (if i remember correctly), ball speed 122 and 95 ft at apex.  This may have been an adjustment to lower spin with shorter shaft.... I'm thinking about ordering these clubs standard length and loft to feel them out. In case there is small improvemwnt to my swing vs cutting length. I'd also just choke the club to test on the course a while before cutting the shaft. Lastly, although these are cast clubs and not forged I've also heard they are a little hard to bend the lofts/lies. I would guess a good club shop could bend these 1 degree at some time later, correct?  I'm guessing if this is true, it has something to do with the metallurgy. Appreciate the feedback to help my decision!
