Reed touching the sand with his fairway metal on his second shot on the 15th? Unless it’s a different classification in that sand hazard....<br />
<br />
Love to hear your view after watching it...

    Isn't that rule changing too? Another one of those "player's intent" things?

    No. It’s just very important your know if it’s classified as a hazard or a waste area......as DJ knows all too well.<br />
    <br />
    All the players get a detailed handout about this and any other local rules or oddities about the course before the tournament starts. Whether they read it is another thing altogether.<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Ps. And original poster, edit your title please. It’s terrible. Just go to your first post and hit the edit button.

    At least these bunkers don’t have 100s of people camping inside them . I mean can we just bulldoze whistling straights already ? I’ll never ever get over that. Hate the course because of that. How fans can sit in an actual bunker while a guy plays a shot from it is beyond me. Calling that penalty with that optic took incredible something. I just don’t know what to call it.

    Can you take practice swings in waste area? And remove debri and such? I need to checkout the new WRX article on the new rule changes too. I saw you can now do all of that in red stake hazards in 2019. This will save me a lot of wear and tear on my irons being able to clear rocks and debri.

    Thanks. I knew about grounding club but wasn't sure about practice swings. I never knew you weren't allowed to bring your bag into the hazard too. Like no part of your equipment can be grounded in the hazard, right (current rule)? I admit I am ignorant about lots of rules.

    Nope. You can now ground your club in a water hazard, you can inadvertently touch the sand and remove loose impediments in a bunker, but you still can't ground your club in a bunker

    But next year you can ground your club in a bunker to brace yourself from a fall, correct? I know some older guys at the club will appreciate this new rule for getting into and out of steep bunkers.

    Also, signing an incorrect scorecard will be permissible as long as you did not feel it.

    [background=rgb(239, 240, 242)]2019 Rule: Under Rule 17:[/background]
      <br />
    • There will no longer be any special restrictions when a ball is in a “penalty area” (the expanded designation for the area that includes what are now called water hazards).<br />
    • A player will be allowed to touch or move loose impediments and touch the ground with hand or club (such as grounding the club right behind the ball) for any reason, subject only to the prohibition on improving conditions for the stroke (see new Rule 8.1a).<br />
    <br />
    Also, I'm pretty sure touching even one grain of sand is considered "grounding" the club under the old rules. That's what I was getting at initally, but it appears setting up with your club in the sand is okay under the new rules. That I did not know.

    Ignorant? Maybe not. Misinformed? Probably<br />
    <br />
    You were always allowed to<br />
    - brace from fall or to keep your balance<br />
    - bring equipment into the hazard<br />
    <br />
    Current 13-4<br />
    <br />
    Exceptions:<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    1. Provided nothing is done that constitutes testing the condition of the hazard or improves the lie of the ball, there is no penalty if the player (a) touches the ground or loose impediments in any hazard or water in a water hazard as a result of or to prevent falling, in removing an obstruction, in measuring or in marking the position of, retrieving, lifting, placing or replacing a ball under any Rule or (b) places his clubs in a hazard.<br />
    <br />
    And if there is a local rule, you can remove stones from bunkers. Most courses have this local rule in place. It should be on the scorecard.

    I don't think those are accurate. Here is new rule:<br />

    <br />
    <br />
    b. Restrictions on Touching Sand in Bunker<br />
    <br />
    stroke at a ball in a bunker, a player must not:<br />
      <br />
    • Deliberately touch sand in the bunker with a hand, club, rake or other object to test the condition of the sand to learn information for the next stroke, or<br />
    • Touch sand in the bunker with a club:<br /> <br />
    <br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Red results in penalty.

    Well yeah, I mean I got mine from the same place. But maybe we are talking about two different things, with both being correct: No you can't ground your club at address (if that's what you meant by setting up) but yes you can touch the sand while removing LOs.

    GGeneral area is a new term that replaced 'through the green' down here in Australia, this area covers everything except tee, bunkers,penalty area and green. Assuming it's the same in the US? So waste areas would fall under penalty areas? And would the same relief procedures apply?

    I like my bad boys in golf... Phil, Reed, Bubba, Sabatini, those you wanna see crumble and fall apart or want to see win against the odds, that's why I watch golf, it's like watching a thriller unfold and something to relate to at the same time.

    Yes it's the same for US, but no... waste bunkers would be in the general area, so the restrictions for penalty areas would not apply.
