Quite the headline, isn't it?

It's probably not quite what you were thinking, though.

On Saturday Nicolas Colsaerts was facing Graeme McDowell in the quarterfinals of the Volvo World Match Play Championship in Bulgaria. He hit a wayward -- and I mean wayward -- tee shot and the referee on hand determined the nearest point of relief (hold your jokes) was in the bathroom you see in the video above.

From there he was given additional relief (again, hold your jokes) over and over again until he eventually ended up on a bit of greenery.

All humor aside, can you imagine the utter meltdown of the Internet if this would have happened to Tiger Woods?

McDowell went on to beat Colsaerts in this match and won the tournament.
