Bunker (golf)

bunker (bunker) IsGolf OfOur CoursesIs one element that formsWater hazardBelongs to the hazard lined up with. Shapes and sizes vary, but they are filled with sand. In most cases, it is recessed several tens of centimeters from the surrounding ground.

Impact of bunker

The bunker belongs to the hazard, but unlike the water hazard, there is no relief measure even if a hit ball is hit into the bunker. It is extremely difficult to hit a ball that flies well from a bunker, which causes the score to deteriorate. In particular, the bunker's sand in dry seasons and climate zones is dry and dry, and the ball hit into the bunker at that time is buried deep in the sand, making it even more difficult to get out of the shot.

The existence of a bunker strongly affects the psychology of each player participating in the match. When a player's ball hits a bunker, that player may become overly tense. At that time, other playersSchadenfreudeThey may have a "gained" feeling due to the effect, and tend to be relaxed. It is a golfer's key to maintain a normal state of mind in spite of various changes in circumstances, and even if another person hits the bunker, he/she is required to have the ability to calmly proceed his/her play without being affected by it.

Guard bunker (guard bunker) A bunker that is around the green and does not let balls spilled from the green to go out of bounds.

Fairway bunker (fairway bunker) fairwayIs in the middle ofTee shotBunker to make it difficult.

Escape from the bunker

A shot to escape from the bunker,Bunker shotSay Especially when escaping from a guard bunker,Sand wedge Use a slightly special club called (SW). The sand wedge is a club that does not have a long flight distance, but has the property of making deep contact with the ball, having a high trajectory, and showing a clear direction. In this case, a club other than the sand wedge may be used. The point is that it is necessary to escape efficiently and make up for the loss in the number of hits in the bunker. If you're new to sand wedges, you can use a club that's easy for you. However, no matter what club you use, you are not allowed to scoop with a face or shaft.

Bunker placement in course design

Considering the placement of bunker in the course design is a tasty task.

As an example, for golfers who can earn flight distance,Tea groundFrom one shotグ リ ー ンWhen thinking about a layout that can aim at, if you place a bunker in front of the green, "you can manage to hit the green with one shot even if you can not do it" or "I am afraid to fit in the bunker and aim a little ahead" ] You can ask the player to make a decision.

As another example, for a beginner's (a little careless) consideration, the ball on the ground rolls for a long time.Out of boundsBy providing a bunker on the slope that tends to be (OB), it may give a kind of "safety zone" role. The bunker behind the green as seen from the teeing ground has this property. Suppress the occurrence of OB by catching a ball that has failed to approach and has flew excessively over the green.penaltyWill be added by 1).

Rules and etiquette

Competitors with the ball in the bunker must not touch the sand in the club until the shot is taken. If you touch itpenaltyBecomesア ド レ スThe case of (taking a shot) is no exception. It should be noted that if the ball does not come out of the bunker on a bunker shot and you hit the sand with regret at the club, the penalty mentioned above will result. This was because the ball didn't come out of the bunker that shot it, so the next shot would also be a bunker shot from the same bunker, and when the club touched the sand, it met the condition ``touched the sand with the club before the shot''. This is because it ends up. However, even if a bunker shot enters another bunker, the next shot will be a bunker shot from another bunker, so hitting the sand of the original bunker at the club does not result in a penalty. If you decide that you cannot escape on your own, you can promptly declare yourself an unplayable and take a penalty of 1 stroke to proceed in an appropriate manner.

No improvements shall be made within the hazard, including bunker. Loose impediments (small obstacles such as dead leaves) should not be removed. If you go wrong, you will get a penalty of two strokes.

After you have escaped from the bunker, you must quickly repair your footsteps and impact marks. It is a violation of manners to proceed to the next place with peace of mind that you can escape. In the case of a general course, there are (mostly)rakeThere is a repairing device called "." If there are marks left by other players, repair them at the same time. Return the rake to a place and direction where it is hard for the ball to hit.

A case involving a bunker

This is really happening in professional golf tournaments around bunkers.

1990 OfDunlop Phoenix ChampionshipDay 3 of. In the 16th hole (par 4)Larry NelsonThe tee shot he shot into the bunker, or through the green, caused him to agonize himself with the race committee. Unfortunately, it happened because the ball entered the border between the bunker and Through the Green. Nelson, who claims that the ball can be dropped without penalty because it is through the green, and the race committee's claim that "the ball is in a bunker. You must take a penalty because you declared unplayable" ( In fact, I couldn't get the ball out of the bunker at once. For the time being, they continue playing, and after the holeout, the two parties discuss again, and eventually Nelson follows the ruling of the race committee (JapaneseApologized "I'm sorry," and the hole became a triple bogey.
