Jon Rahm had to pee pretty badly on Friday in the second round of the 2019 PGA Championship, and he couldn't wait until Dustin Johnson hit his shot 30 yards behind him.
Rahm wasn't anywhere near a port-a-potty at Bethpage Black when he had the urge to go, so Rahm ran off the fairway and to a huge tree to do the gentlemanly thing and relieve himself.

For his part, Dustin Johnson could not have appeared to care any less about what Rahm was doing in front of him. After all, Johnson was playing great early on Friday, trying to track down friend and lifting bro Brooks Koepka, who opened Thursday with a course-record 7-under 63 to take the early lead in search of a fourth major title.
For the cameraman's part, once he realized what Rahm was doing, he tried to pan away without drawing a ton of attention to the tall Spaniard peeing on a tree. Yeah, that wasn't going to work out so well.
Maybe if Rahm had been wearing grey from head to toe, he may have blended in with the trunk of the tree. It was that black shirt that gave it all away.
Of course, this is no big deal. Every male golfer ever has done something like this at some point. The difference between the pros and us weekend hackers is that we know our friends aren't good enough at golf to give us the confidence to use nature's bathroom in front of them while they hit.
