Golfer plays out of toilet

10:04 am on 19 May 2013

Defending champion Nicolas Colsaerts crashed out of the World Match Play Championship after being forced to play out of a toilet.

The Belgian was beaten by Ryder Cup colleague Graeme McDowell 2 & 1 in the quarter-finals on Bulgaria's Thracian Cliffs course.

His challenge unravelled on the par-four 10th hole when his tee shot flew over a public toilet close to the green.

He was then told that he had to take a one-stroke penalty drop within the cubicle.
