GOLF RULES

So you better know the correct procedure.
  1. Place a small coin (or similar ball marker) directly behind your golf ball on the putting green.
  2. Pick up your golf ball. …
  3. When ready to replace your golf ball on the ground, put it back on the green directly in front of your ball marker

New Golf Rules Explained: Bunker Changes

There are two key changes to note when it comes to bunkers…

Touching or moving loose impediments or sand in a bunker

Previously

In a bunker, you must not touch the sand with either hand or club, or touch or move any loose impediments in the hazard.

From 2019

 

An acceptable sight from 2019

You are now able to touch or move loose impediments in a bunker and generally touch the sand with hand or club.

However, you still must not deliberately touch it to test its condition.

Prohibitions for practice swings and grounding the club at address or on the back swing will remain.

The challenge of bunkers is meant to be playing from sand and not having to also deal with pine cones, twigs etc.

The remaining restrictions will ensure nothing is done to reduce that test.
