Rule of the Day

13-4/30 Grounding Club on Bridge in Water Hazard

Q:
A player's ball lies on a bridge over a water hazard within the margins of the hazard when extended upward. May the player ground his club?

A:
Yes. A bridge is an obstruction. In a hazard, the club may touch an obstruction at address or in the backward movement for the stroke -- see Note under Rule 13-4. Touching the bridge prior to address is also permissible, since an obstruction in a water hazard is not "ground in the hazard."

This applies even if the bridge has been declared an integral part of the course.

golf-history 1932 USA Wins Walker Cup at Brookline

Sep 02

Francis Ouimet, the 1913 U.S. Open and 1914 and ’31 U.S. Amateur champion, took over the USA captaincy from a now-retired Bob Jones. The 1932 competition was played at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass., and the Americans once again handled the Great Britain and Ireland side with ease, 8-1. George Dunlap recorded the largest victory in the Match, a 10-and-9 singles win over Eric McRuvie. Leonard Crawley made the only dent – figuratively and literally – for the GB&I side. In singles, he defeated George Voigt, 1 up, but his errant approach shot to the 18th green in the morning round of the 36-hole match hit the actual Walker Cup on the fly.
