WATCH: Matt Kuchar nearly missed his Open tee time because he had to use the bathroom

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.

The 40-year-old then parred the hole on his way to a 1-under first round.
