Here's one for the rules officianados... You play a bunker shot from the sand and hit a lovely big stone under the sand an take a chunk out of the face of your sand iron... is the sand iron no longer conforming because it has changed????


Not a problem if you do it during the round in normal play - the problem with CH3 was it was on the range.

Now in between - it was deemd non conforming without the latch.

Apparently it gives an aerodynamic advantage without the latch.

The bit that gets me is that if the latch came off during a round he would have been ok to continue with a non conforming club!  So if it was 'accidentally' left loose by a technician and fell off after the first drive, no problems!

The most amazing thing to me is that he didn't have a spare driver or six knocking about...

The key point here is did he actually know the latch had come off prior to his round. If he did, why didn't he swop drivers and if he didn't then there's no blame and he's been unlucky. If he did, then that's just plain stupidity on his part if he new the rule. Maybe the caddy noticed it, but didn't tell him. Obviously he can't prove either way so the PGA rule will assume that the driver was, and should be, checked before starting.
