Rule 25-1

Entire Bunker filled with Casual Water

Q.  What are a player`s options if an entire bunker is filled with casual water?

A.  Under Rule 25-1b(ii), without penalty, the player may drop the ball in the bunker at a point that provides maximum available relief (i.e., in 1 inch of water rather than 5 inches). Or, under penalty of one stroke, the player may drop the ball outside the bunker keeping the point where the ball lay directly between the hole and where the ball is dropped, with no limit on how far behind the bunker the ball may be dropped. (See Decision 25-1b/8)
