Greetings from Maurice Campbell

At this time of year there are a number of leaves lying around the golf course. The leaves are loose impediments as defined by the rules. They are also natural objects. You find yourself in a bunker but cannot clearly see your ball due to the fact that your ball is covered in leaves. In this case you are able to move leaves to identify your ball. If you need to clean your ball to identify it you can but you need to mark if first and are only allowed to clean it enough to identify the ball. Once the ball has been identified you must return it to where it was and it must be lying in the same state. That means if it was covered by leaves you must recover the ball. In a bunker you can only remove objects that are not natural such as cigarette butts or crisp packets. Twigs, leaves, pine needles and other natural items cannot be touched. I hope this helps if you find yourself in this situation. Bunkers are defined as hazards which means as previously mentioned you cannot touch anything natural in the hazard before your shot.

What we can do for you

The professionals at the club, Will, Wayne and myself are all available to provide you with advice FREE of charge. Advice on the best ball for your game, advice on what are the best wedges and what bounce you need. I am always amazed when someone has purchased a wedge either online or at a large retail chain and does not know or has not been told about the bounce on the wedge.

Three vitally important things need to be considered when purchasing a wedge and they are, does it fill the gap you need to fill, does the bounce angle suit your golf swing and what shots are you looking to play with the new wedge. We will help you answer these questions and we will also tell that you don't need a new wedge if you really don't need one.

Our concern and our goal is to improve your golf and give you the best advice possible and not just to solely make a sale. If there is anything you want to talk about regarding your game then please just speak to us and we will give you the best advice possible.

One wedge shot that needs to be played around our golf course is the lob shot. A good 60 degree wedge with a nice amount of bounce on the sole will help you execute the shot effectively. That said it is important that you have the correct technique and that you practice the shot. This is so you know how it feels and how to judge the distance.
