On Friday afternoon, PGA star Jon Rahm hoped to remain in contention at Bethpage Black in order to play the weekend.
Rahm started his day with back-to-back birdies, but his round fell apart after that. The Spaniard bogeyed seven of the final 16 holes to finish the day with a five-over, 75 which knocked him out of contention.
However, falling short of the weekend wasn’t the most-embarrassing part of his day.
Despite playing in a featured group where the cameras are always on, Rahm attempted to make a very private moment very public.
As Dustin Johnson was making his approach, Rahm can be seen running into the woods to relieve himself.

Now, every golfer has been here at some point, but it usually doesn’t happen at a major tournament.
It was a rough Friday afternoon for Rahm, who missed the cut by just one shot. On Thursday, Rahm finished as one of only a handful of golfers to avoid going over-par on the day.
However, he couldn’t string together solid rounds and will have to watch the rest of the tournament from his couch.
At least he’ll have a little more privacy.
Stay tuned for the third round of the PGA Championship.
