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

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!

    • Why does Rory struggle with consistency?
    • I would say it depends on how the 3W distance works with the length of the holes he is going to be playing. If there are par 4s around 430 for example I think he would be foolish not to carry a club that enabled him to get there in 2. Agree however that flexibility goes up drastically if not carrying putter and with the tournament several weeks away there is theoretically enough time to get comfortable with using a low lofted metalwood or bladed wedge. Really would be ideal to know the course to help strategize.
    • i would suggest a more lofted fairway wood or hybrid since a 3 wood needs a good lie to be hit off the fairway.  If you are in the rough or in a bad lie, then the 6 iron would be your only choice.  A 5 wood might be shorter but is more flexible and adaptable in the types of lies you can play it from.  The iron for me would be anything from a 6 to 8 iron depending on your comfort and distance.  The wedge you should consider whether you can play a slightly less lofted wedge, like a gap wedge maybe.  However, the less loft you have the more skill you need in playing different shots.  Hitting a sand wedge is easier but it does mean most of your shots around and close to the green will be high lofted shots. The putter is the one club where I question whether you truly need it.  If you can putt with something like the wood/hybrid in your bag, that gives you far greater options and flexibility.  However, it would need practice since we rarely putt with any other club. In my case a 4 club choice would be 4 hybrid, 7 iron, PW and SW/LW depending on course conditions.  I would putt with the hybrid and use that for most tee shots.  On my home course, there are maybe two holes where I couldn't reach a green in regulation with those clubs.   Essentially long par 4's where I need to hit driver off the tee.
    • Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it. Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next.  But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.
    • I'm not an expert but the swing in the video seemed like you did not bring the upper body around quickly enough. Is it possible your focus on not firing the shoulder right away is causing too much lag there? Swing is about tempo so too slow can be an error just like too fast.
