Icon86 Arnold Palmer pooped on a golf course?

Comment: Gary Player on The Golf Channel told a story about Arnold Palmer
pooping on a green during a tournament in Japan. Did it happen or is Gary
Player "mis-remembering"?

Probably meant as "poot" not poop...

As per this page: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/poop
Quote:
1735–45; earlier “to break wind,” probably the same word as Middle English powpen, popen to sound or blow a horn; uncertain if poop2, poop3 are sense developments or parallel expressive coinages]
