I don't know how that's supposed to be discreet, lol.  Even if that looked like a club, which it doesn't, who stands there with thier towel like that?  It actually looks like he's peeing into an umbrella handle or something.  I think it would be better if it had a clubhead on the end of it - that way you could pee while hitting some chip shots at the practice area. As for me - if there is privacy, I will pee in the woods.  Otherwise I will wait for bathroom.

You can't see it from that photo, but there IS a club head on it. It's an iron.

I would hate to have the shaft break on a swing, if you know what I mean.

How they are not being warned by the marshall?

With my regular group............

Walking 5 paces away and turning away from other players and facing a tree was enough............

"Just give me a tree", but with the proviso that I use discretion according to my surroundings.  Some courses require that you traipse a little deeper into the flora than others.

I've played a good many courses where there are few or no trees, no bushes, just wide open spaces where you are always in view of players on other holes, in view of homes, etc.

I restate my question:  Do you have some kidney or bladder disease that you can't hold it for a half hour until you get to a rest room?  We aren't dogs needing to mark our territory - we are supposed to be civilized human beings with some sense of propriety.

I will use a restroom unless I just absolutely cannot hold it in any longer(as in, I've been holding it for a few holes already and things aren't moving fast enough).  It seems like some guys just can't help but go take a piss whenever they see a tree.

a couple weeks ago my friend and I were the second group off...a single was in front of us.  We tee off on the 4th hole(from the tee you are blind from about 170 in to the hole...well as we come up over the crest..there stands the single right by the green taking a leak.  On top of that, he's facing towards us as we come up the fairway and he stood there for another minute before he thought it might be better to turn around.

A few years ago I was playing solo and had played through 16 holes....and on the 15th and 16th I could feel a little bit of poo radar starting to ping.  Anyway, I think "I'm just a couple holes from being done, I can play through it" so I go ahead and tee up on the 17th.  I swing and I think I damn near poo'd myself..it was the worst feeling in the world.  I had to get to a bathroom and quick!  It felt like I hit every bump on the course as I rode to pick up my ball and then speed to the clubhouse.  I barely made it in time to not make mud in my pants.....thank GOD!

I live and work on the same golf course, was playing a late 9 when nature hit. I had to leave the balls on the course, run back home (across 4 holes) and go. Went back out to grab the golf balls later.

Flappy... do you mean to tell me you don't wear diapers when you golf?  That's what I would do if I were you... like the ones the astronauts wear!

In the cheap public courses I play, I've seen too many golfers just relieve themselves on trees, and house fences.   The house owners and the course management must have known.  They posted signs on their fences not to urinate and people still do it. Once, I saw a guy urinate on a fence when a toilet was just 40 yards away.   And he had cart!  The stupid thing about this is, as Lihu stated, there are restrooms and portable toilets about every 3 - 4 holes.   I guess some folks just can't hold their beers at all :beer: .

I'm guessing he doesn't mean urinating... I'll walk into the woods if I need to go and there is no close port-a-johns. I get as much out of view as possible though, not like my dad and his buddies, they'll sometimes just stand by the cart or a lone tree and go.

I'll pee anywhere but you gotta hold that S in!! Unless you're ready to ditch your hand towel in the woods!

    • PGA2K21 is good. I play it on the PS4. 
    • Day 83 - Spent more time filming swings. It seems I’m correct at A2 or A3, getting both to be what I’m looking for isn’t working. Have more work to do before sending in more swings. 
    • Rule 2 - The Course Notes as follows. These are notes, not a recap or a summary or anything like that. 2.1 - Course Boundaries and Out of Bounds The Committee has to decide where boundaries are. 2.2 - Defined Areas of the Course There are five: general area the teeing area the green penalty area bunker If the ball is in two areas, it's treated as lying in the general area last, or in the order: penalty area, bunker, putting green. 2.3 - Objects or Conditions that can Interfere with Play Just links to other rules for loose impediments, movable obstructions, abnormal course conditions, GUR, temporary water, or immovable obstructions. No relief for boundary objects. 2.4 - No Play Zones Must take relief when ball, stance, area of swing interfered with here can be an ACC or a penalty area
    • Pm back at ya Piz.  This should be fun.  Thank you Adam as well.  We’ll have to keep comparing notes next spring when the weather gets better.  
    • Last lesson of the year today 12/2: Full swing stuff - backswing and tempo were much improved which is what I’ve been working on so happy with that. We discussed the block fade miss caused by open club face. My transition is aggressive which pulls the club face open when the handle of the club starts moving too quickly (or something like that). Quick fix was to have a feel for the club head moving and widening the arc before the handle starts going. Did some work on this at about 75% full speed and then added speed back as I got the hang of it. Putting work - did a putter fitting and when selecting the alignment aid design, I learned that they don’t matter at all for how I aim. Apparently no matter where the target was, I tended to line my aim up around the spatial configuration of the putting area (e.g., aiming parallel to the edge of the putting surface, or a nearby wall). Once I was aware of this behavior and able to consciously overcome it, my initial aim was really good. When I scheduled the fitting with my teacher I had my mind made up on something from the Edel product line, but I tried one of those ridiculous looking LAB putters and it was undeniably good for me, so that’s what I ended up going with.
