Our course and a heap of others down here have relief from kangaroo prints in bunkers.

What happens if some assclown human walks into the bunker and puts a footprint on the top of said roo print and youyr ball lands in tbe human footprint that is ontop of the roo print?

I thought of this at 4am this morning not being able to sleep

Then you wouldn't be able to see the original roo print.

Go back to sleep, Rob.

You may see it under the footprint - just a human shown shape on top of it partially obscuring it only

I would stab at a guess and if you get relief from roo prints then you could argue that you are entitled to a drop in the bunker and because the roo print was existing prior to the foot print then you are entitled to the drop from the roo print.

Fcuken lazy green staff should have raked the bunkers to eliminate this loss of sleep you are having Robbie

I thought the green keepers had trained kangaroos to follow them after they raked bunkers and run through them

 I don't see a human footprint partially  superimposed on it  changing anything:  there is still a kangaroo print there and if your ball is in or touching what is recognisably a  kangaroo footprint, I would allow relief without penalty.  If there were doubt as to whether the ball was actually on or touching the roo footprint because its outline was obscured by the human hoof mark, I would not allow relief.

What if hypothetically I was mowing a green and Roos had traversed slowly through the bunker, leaving tail scrape marks in the sand, should I make the effort to rake the tail marks out and leave the paw prints and droppings in the sand, or leave tail scrape marks and remove the droppings???

You weren't playing "Hypothetical" Growling Frog, were you?   :unsure:   I think I saw quite a few of those prints on Sunday.   ;)
