My course is ok for a quick number one amongst the trees, but theres no hope if a sit down is required. We don't have any toilets in the course. So I end up playing most the round with a dash to the clubhouse at the end! Very off putting haha.

 

I played in Spain a few week ago and they had toilets dotted around but over there I was more concerned about loosing places to the groups behind so didn't use it.

when nature calls are we to take toilet roll and venture into the woods haha?

If you do find the need to do #2 on the course somewhere other than a bathroom...always borrow your friend's towel.  Never use your own. :-D

Never been in that situation fortunately, but most courses I play on have bathrooms so no I wouldn't be squatting in the woods.

If I haven't cleared the old intestines way earlier in the morning, it means a sick day for me.

I suppose stuff gets a bit tougher there as you get older.

Psyllium Husks -- put a tablespoon in your oatmeal in the morning, or dissolve in water and drink quickly.

Helps clear you out smoothly each morning, and reduces cholesterol

I've been in this unfortunate situation a few times over the years.  Highly recommend FJ rain gloves as the wiping implement.  Silky smooth, velvety even.  If I were wealthy, I'd have a stack of em in each of my bathrooms at home.;-)

I always keep a travel size pack of Cottonelle wet wipes in my bag. And not to be too TMI, I also carry a roll of the scented pet pick-up bags for the wipes and toss them out at the next trash can. If you don't want to go that far, make sure the wipes are the flushable variety, they have a better chance of being biodegradable and somewhat healthier for the environment.

IMO.....if you have to take a dump during a round, I might call you out for being a non-golfer for not being prepared!!  LOL

With that said, I play "dawn patrol" golf and sometimes I am unable to take care of "Morning Business" before a 630am tee time!!   Sometimes the need is delayed and I can't do it before the first tee!!  On these days.....Uh oh...anything is possible!

Luckily....we have facilities on each 9 at the midway point, so this isn't a huge issue.

 If only we could all be as cool as you. Sorry-You do not get to decide who is a golfer and who is not.

Nice avatar. Not. I am reporting it. Because if you have an avatar that is offensive to women and children you are not a golfer.-Yeah that is as lame as I thought it would be.

I second the wet wipes. When my kids were young I would take a few and keep them in a ziplock bag.
I also keep a few tums, to combat the stomach pains if I have to hold it too long.
I also bring gum, to chomp on to take my mind off of you know what.

My home course has a bathroom at the bar which is by the 1st hole. And a porta-potty by the 10th hole, which is located 1/2 mile from the 1st.

Luckily there are lots of trees. 
Luckily never had to go 2!

    • Lol. Well if you don’t want to reach your potential then you’re exactly right. So If by realistic you mean what you’re willing to work on, then yes. And I’m not knocking that at all. I personally have never taken up a sport with the goal to be as mediocre as possible but I’ve known those who are happy to just play regardless of how they do. 
    • Greetings, I thought I'd circle back on this topic and let everyone know that I've decided to stick with my current coach.  My current coach has really taken me a long way. Not only that, but I think it's "easier" (is that the right word) to stick with one voice. I hit the ball brilliantly on the range the last couple weeks before getting injured, but it didn't translate to the course (actually quite the opposite). I think some of that was due to me being kind of stuck between the two worlds. While injured I've been diving into my video and my swing was never better that it was while under his instruction. So, back to it.  Since I've been injured I haven't had a chance to work on much of anything new. However, he and I are putting together my plan for the next 6 months. We will use all my data including Arccos, as well as launch data from Trackman. Going to analyze weaknesses, firm up strengths and get to the plan. It should be a fun off season.  Thanks to all who responded to this thread.  One more thing: Really looking forward to getting back to the SuperSpeed training. 
    • Give it another 3-5 years and I might feel the same. Some tech within that umbrella is ready to go out and be a commercial success, but I've done enough work with some of the latest and greatest for machine learning algorithms to know I don't want it touching anything critical safety related just yet. Computer vision is something that many people have a pretty good handle on and there's fresh data coming in often enough that 1-3 missed detections aren't going to cause any noticeable affects. Machine learning is quite a bit more difficult and most practical applications using it are currently "stuck" in that 80-90% of the way there phase that's good enough to show real promise but not good enough to release to the public. Funny enough it's a lot easier to teach an AI to play a video game than it is to teach them to do something like control a temperature. It wasn't all that far off it turns out, the real number was 0.00029 compared to my estimate of 0.00039. The reason I said 3 trips per registered car on average is because while there are a lot of cars that sit (multiple cars for one driver, or the driver isn't using it that day) there are also plenty of cars that are moving all day possibly with multiple different drivers. Figured it probably averaged out somewhere in that 3-4 trips per car range and it looks like that's correct (since 4 trips per car would give a probability of 0.00028. 4 trips per car per day would've been the best guess it seems.
    • I will accept "easier" for many but for me both more realistic & easier!  + Why make things more difficult than they need be? 
    • This is a bad calculation because many people have more than 1 vehicle. For me, I have 3, two motorcycles and a car, and I don't think I have ever taken all 3 out in the same day, let alone 3 times each. A better metric would be 3x licensed drivers.
