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.

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

    • Best part about 12 holes is you get to hit the local watering hole after your round and respond to those nosy patrons that you shot a 68.  No need to tell them you were 20 over par... 😊
    • Spent time this past weekend doing my annual club/bag cleaning. I wipe down my clubs after every shot. During my golf year, about every couple of months they get get a more thorough cleaning. All this cleaning helps with longevity.  This weekend's work involved cleaning grips, and buffing the the club heads. I use dish detergent, and a light scratch pad on the grips, which helps to regain some of the tackiness to them. Gets the accumulated oil, and grime off of them.  I buff the heads to regain the lost luster. Just making them shiny again. I put my groove cleaner to good work. I pay close attention to the soles, to see how perpendicular the scratch lines are to the club face. This gives me a little info on my impact position.  Cleaning my bag is an adventure in itself. Old, forgotten snack bars that made their way to bottom of the bag. That, and lost change, and forgotten trash. I found my favorite divot tool that I thought I lost at Bandon Dunes a few months ago.  Everything gets taken out, and cleaned. Trash gets thrown away. The compartments get vacuumed. The zippers get some very light (Vaseline) lube. I check all the seams, and connecting points for stitching repairs as needed. Strap connections get a thorough look see. Electronic stuff gets new batteries.  I also clean, and repair the 5 head covers I use. They tend to get a little dirty. I use puppet heads on my metal woods. The "Big Dog" (St.Bernard) cover required a little stitching.  Good thing my wife tought me how to stitch with out poking my fingers too many times. Proper tools makes this an easy chore.   The last thing I do is give the outside of the bag a good wipe down, with a light coating of Amor All. Then I set it out in the sun to dry off, followed by another wipe down.   Once the cleaning is all done, I do the restocking of clubs, tees, balls, divot tools,  ball marker coins, rags, shoes, gps, lazer, extra batteries,  blank score cards, and anything else I think I might need. One of the larger compartments stays empty for that spur of the moment stuff, that might require an ice block. Like others, I always seem to miss that "NO OUTSIDE COOLERS, FOOD, OR BEVERSGES ALLOWED" signage.    As I said previously. Clean tools, properly maintained, last longer. I'd also hate to think I lost a stroke or two, due to a slippery grip, or dirty club head. 
    • 1. Inconsistent pre shot routines 2. Chatting too much 3. Playing to quickly
    • I carry mainly so don’t want too much extra weight.  1 13xclubs 2 6xballs 3 2xgloves 4 Bag of tees 5 Pencil 6 Sharpie marker 7 Pitchmark repair tool and ball marker 8 Towel 9 Rules book 10 Spare card of the course 11 Waterproof jacket ( if the W forecast is really bad) 12 Umbrella (as above) 13 Drink 14 Snack        
    • Let it all out, folks. 1. Having made an approach shot that came to rest off the green, I do what most of us do. I park the cart, grab the putter and maybe a couple of clubs for the most likely next shot.  The problem is that when I guess wrong, I rarely then go back to the cart.  I will make do with what I brought. 2. At address, I often simply forget to go through the proper swing thoughts that I know I have to keep in mind.  The consequences are predictably awful. 3. Knowing full well that alcohol spoils my round, I can not turn down a beer or two.  And my friends love to bring them.  I even buy them at times. I am sure there are more.  What are yours?
