  1. The poll is the main gist of this topic, and the posts are for discussion, so if you haven't voted, please do so. I voted to banish bunker rakes. They slow play and many people suck at raking bunkers anyway. You can get splinters from the fiberglass ones, too, and the improper placement of a bunker rake has often resulted in a bounce that shouldn't have occurred. Plus, they add to the possibility that someone won't know what to do in a rules situation. I think the bunkers should be maintained by the staff only, and golfers should be asked to smooth footprints and divots and the like using their feet, clubhead, etc. Bunkers are hazard(ous) areas, and they've often gotten to be where they're too "nice" to play from. For those of you who play out of poorly maintained bunkers, think about it this way: it probably can't get much worse, so this will drop everyone else down closer to the level you've been seeing from your bunkers. The only cons are that I can see how if the staff maintains the bunkers in the morning, early players get the benefit of getting to play from "good" bunkers while afternoon players are playing from chopped up bunkers. But I imagine even that can be worked around - maintain the bunkers on a somewhat irregular schedule, or change the definition of "bunker maintenance" to create similar situations and lies.
  2. Steve Williams was very mad about having Adam Scott hit from a bad lie in an "unraked" fairway bunker. I would not want to be that guy. Did Steve ever find the bunker raking slouch? I agree with Adam Scott's caddie, this should not happen. They are professionals - right?
