    Cool On the beach

    Hey Gary;

    Players A&B hit their approach shots and upon reaching the green notice that player B's ball is short of a cluster of bunkers, player A's ball is in one of the traps. Player A identifies his ball and steps out of the way into an adjacent bunker and leans on his club that is touching the sand to allow player B to play over the traps to the green.

    Is the cluster of traps considered one hazard, or are they individual hazards? Is this a violation for A? Alternately, if they are individual hazards, is A allowed to take a pracice swing in a bunker that his ball is not in?

    Yes. He would be penalized.

    When your ball is in a bunker, you are not allowed to test the condition of the hazard OR ANY SIMILAR HAZARD.
