It’s that time of year when the leaves change color and after their gorgeous display they all come tumbling down - this creates some interesting situations when a ball is believed to be buried in a pile of leaves - let’s take a look at what to do when your ball is buried in leaves in a bunker.

In stroke play, a player thinks that his yellow ball is in a bunker, which is partly covered with leaves.

Question 1:
In searching for his ball may the player probe the leaves with ...
a) ... his hands?
b) ... His club?
c) ... a rake?

Question 2:
After finding a ball in the leaves in the bunker, if the player cannot identify it as his, may he mark its position and lift it?

Question 3:
Having found his yellow ball surrounded by leaves in a bunker may the player touch those leaves ...
a)    ... with his club while preparing to make his stroke?
b)    ... in taking a practice swing?

c)    ... on the back swing of his stroke?
