Rule 12 - Bunkers:
Lisa asked me to pass on a ruling that occurred during her rep match when her opponent inadvertently touched the sand in a bunker with her club while removing the rake (a movable obstruction). The player was not penalised as this did not improve the conditions affecting the stroke.
Rule 12.2a “Removing Loose Impediments and Movable Obstructions - Before playing a ball in a bunker, a player may remove loose impediments (R15.1) or movable obstructions (Rule 15.2). This includes any reasonable touching or movement of the sand in the bunker that happens while doing so”.
Rule 12.2b states that a player must not “Touch the sand in the bunker with a club – in the area right in front or right behind the ball (except as allowed under Rule 7.1a in fairly searching for a ball or under Rule 12.2a in removing a loose impediment or movable obstruction).
