Sorry POM, I shouted.


Decision 13-4/0.5 explains some things that constitute testing the condition of the hazard.


 A couple of swings a bit away from the ball should cause no comment or suspicion. 

This might be a reasonably practical thing if getting in an out of the particular hazard is not a simple few steps.

I am trying to imagine a player placing his club in the grass in a water hazard as per the decision quoted above. Taking a couple of practice swings & then claiming that he was not testing the conditions.To me this decision adds more confusion to the rule rather than simplifying it.

 I have penalized a player for practice swings in a hazard. However only a machete would have done a better job of clearing the grass than this bloke.

Doesn't seem like the gurus agree with you Pom! :o


Not the first time either. :D

We're in a special 'club', aren't we Pom?
