The rule in golf is to play it where it lies, so that didn’t help this golfer after a bad shot.

At a tournament in Bulgaria, golfer Nicholas Colsaerts’ first stroke sends the ball over a bathroom and into the trees.

By rule, that means he would have to take his next shot where the ball crossed the hazard line.

In this case, that would be inside the bathroom.

But the golfer lucked out – since the bathroom is an immovable obstruction, he was allowed to place the ball outside of it.
