July Rules Quiz
In an SBMGC Monday tournament, Sammy hit his tee shot onto the grassy slope to the left of the left greenside bunker on hole #8. Before hitting his 2nd shot, Sammy walked up into the bunker to see the green and decide how he should hit his shot. Returning to his ball but before leaving the bunker, he smoothed the footprints he had make. He then hit his 2nd shot over the bunker and onto the green and then took two putts to hole out.
What should Sammy tell Louie, his marker, to write down as a score for the hole?
