Found May 18, 2013 on Next Impulse Sports:
During the Volvo World Match Play Championship, Nicolas Colsaerts found himself in a very unusual position following an errant tee shot. Colsaerts hit a poor tee shot out of bounds and was forced to take a drop. However, that drop was one which was actually found to be in a nearby restroom. Devil Ball explains more: Colsaerts was playing Graeme McDowell when his tee shot on par-4 10th hole flew well out of play in the hazard. A rules official came over and determined that the nearest point of relief was where most golfers go to take relief; in a nearby bathroom. The ball was dropped inside the toilet, and Colsaerts then was able to take relief from that spot, which means he was able to re-drop his ball close by without penalty because it lay in an unplayable position. Colsaerts then hit his approach shot on the green and rolled in the putt for par. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
