Matt Kuchar may have had some nerves before his round at the Open Thursday morning, however, after deciding to go to the bathroom just minutes before his first-round tee time.
After relieving himself, Kuchar sprinted to the first tee, making it with just seconds to spare before his 9:47 (local time) tee time. Ever the gentleman, he paused to shake the hands of the volunteers before emerging, of course.
