I read a snippet yesterday from a golf.com rule guy. He gave the answer about a bunker question…Now I’m going to take it a step further with a couple scenarios and I honestly don’t know the answer.
Both you and your playing partners nads land in the sand side by side within 2 inches of each other…
Player 1 marks his ball and lifts allowing Player 2 to hit because player 2 cannot play the shot without hitting player 1’s ball… Now what happens? Does player 2 rake the area, does Player 1 have to drop? or does he place the ball in the crater Player 2 just made? Does Player 1 place the ball on a raked area that Player 2 where player 2 just played from?
Even better Player 1 is closer to the hole by an inch side by side, Both balls are in a footprint. Player 2 has to play out of the footprint…What does player 1 now do…Rub of the Green?
I know there are a couple guys that are way better than me with these tricky questions…
Love to hear
