Ball Striking Rake

If a player's ball should strike, be obstructed by, or come to rest against a rake, whether it lies within a bunker or outside it, he may proceed as follows:

1. If his ball audibly or visibly strikes or rebounds off a rake that is subsequently found to have been negligently left on ground outside the margins of a bunker, and the ball then comes to rest inside the bunker, it may be removed without penalty and dropped in the place where the player reasonably believes his ball would have come to rest had it not been unduly interfered with, but even if the original path of his ball was in a direct line with the pin, he may not drop it in the hole.

2. If his ball comes to rest inside a bunker but is lodged against or rebounded off a rake carelessly dropped in the sand at an angle even slightly perpendicular to the natural line of play of the hole, and the player states that in his judgement the ball had sufficient velocity or momentum to have rolled through and out of the bunker had it not been improperly obstructed, he may drop his ball in the place where he believes it would have come to rest, provided the bunker is not so deep or steep-sided as to make such a claim unworthy of serious consideration.
