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

    • Lake Chabot has huge elevation changes, and the greens are very tiny. There are only a few flat holes on the entire course. I've played it enough times with a slope enabled rangefinder that I have a pretty good idea of how I need to club up/down. Also, many of the east bay courses are really dry and firm right now, so there is a lot of roll out. Haven't played Lake Chabot since early May, so not sure what condition it's in now. Here's my recollection of how I played elevation changes last time around. Hole #2, par 3, uphill: I usually club up 1X unless pin is in the front. Hole #3, par 5, extreme uphill approach: I usually club up 2X for this one Hole #4, par 5, also has has an extreme uphill approach: I usually club up 2X Hole #5, par 4, extreme downhill hole: Bombs away with driver Hole #6, par 4, uphill all the way, but short, so maybe 1X club up if laying up. Green is close to reachable for me, so usually I am pitching onto the green Hole #7, par 3, moderate uphill: 1- 2X club up, depending on wind, pin location Hole #8, par 5, downhill tee shot, moderate uphill approach: Bombs away with driver, maybe club up 1X on approach depending on distance. Hole #9, par 3, extreme downhill: This hole is stupid, probably at least 40 yards downhill, but maybe 140 yards from tee to green. I usually club down 2X but depending on wind this varies. Hole #10, par 4, uphill: Another short hole, so clubbing up depends on how aggressive you are off the tee. Probably a 1X club up if laying back off the tee. Hole #11, par 4, uphill approach: At least a 1X club up. Hole #13, par 4, uphill: Another shorter hole, so probably a 1X club up if playing conservative off the tee. Hole #16, par 4, uphill approach: Again, depends on if your tee shot lands in the flat section of the fairway, or if you play aggressively and get closer to the green. Probably a 1-2X club up if playing all the way up the hill. Hole #17, par 3, uphill: Usually 1X club up, but maybe 2 if into the wind. Hole #18, par 6, downhill and uphill: Another stupid hole. Tee shot is slightly downhill. I think that the fairway doglegs left at around 260-280 yards and basically goes 350 yards straight down an extremely steep hill. Then back up almost to half the elevation you just went down. Most players will have their second shot from somewhere around the top of the hill. The second shot on this hole, which is often blind around the dogleg, will usually roll all the way down this hill to the valley in the bottom, regardless of what club you hit. I've hit a 7-iron 280 yards here. Then you have a ridiculous uphill shot that goes back up almost half of the hill you just came down to a green that seems like it's the size of a living room rug. Probably at least 2X club up back up the hill, but I can never really tell. My drive from my last round on the par-6 18th rolled out to 424 yards. I spent 10 minutes looking for my ball around where I saw it bounce, and I was ready to drop in the fairway with a 2-stroke penalty, when one of the guys I was playing with drove his cart another 100+ yards down the fairway and found my ball. It was really well struck, so it might have carried 275 at most, and then bounced over the crest of the hill and rolled another 150 yards downhill and stopped against one of the cart path switchbacks. 
    • I try and get a feel of vanilla, then add mods. Have 300+ on Skyrim. 
    • Oftentimes tournament courses will open Monday to the public to play, with the same Sunday pin placements, so you can essentially play the course the pros played.
    • Didn't know that. I know they close down beforehand, but I assumed they would need some time afterwards, as well. At the very least to tear down grandstands, hospitality tents, etc.
    • Just wait until you get bored of the base game and get into mods. I can't play the base game anymore.
