The player who played the shot loses the point.
ball must be played where it lies no matter what
It depends how far you need to go. You can hit anything from a sand wedge to a 3 wood from a bunker. When hitting a fairway bunker shot, you need to make sure you have enough lift to clear the lip, but you should also choke down on the grip slightly. A fairway bunker shot differs from a green side bunker shot in that, in a green side shot you want to hit a couple of inches behind the ball, in a fairway bunker, you want to catch it ball first, otherwise you will just duff the ball about 30 yards.
Yes, it is. If the ball hits the player at anytime there is a two shot penalty, and the ball must be played as it lies.
When you play a shot from a bunker and hit it out of bounds, you clearly have to replay your shot. But the rules stipulate that the conditions of the previous shot must be recreated. So if you played from sand which was raked, you would rake the sand and place the ball as close to where the last shot was played from in the last shot. If you were in a footprint you would have to make a footprint and place your ball in it, and if you were in a divot, you would make a divot and place the ball in it.
The ball falls, hits the road and does not roll.
Yes, it is. As long as the ball does not hit the back of the backboard or the shot clock, the shot is valid.
No, once you are in a bunker, you may not rake it or ground your club until you are out of that bunker. If you rake the bunker when your ball is still in it, you receive a two shot penalty or loss of the hole in match play.
No, because this is viewed as testing, for which you would be given a penalty.
No, the only time you are allowed to ground your club in the bunker is when you are playing an actual shot. If you ground your club in the bunker prior to a stroke it is a two shot penalty.
Get into the bunker, play their shot then rake the bunker as they are leaving.
Most likely not, when you are playing a bunker shot, the idea is to hit the sand around 4-5 inches before the ball, and allow the ball to have a cushion of sand when the club passes it, this will allow it to go straight up in the air, come down and stop easily on the green. However you may decide to hit the ball first, this is a lot more unreliable shot and it is very easy to lose control of the ball and hit it thin.
One shot penalty and the ball must be played as it lies.
'Explosion' refers to a certain type of shot played out of a sand trap. An explosion shot is done by striking the sand behind the ball, rather than the ball itself; the sand 'explodes' out of the bunker and carries the ball with it.
It is called a plant
It is called a "bank" shot.
If the pool stick, or cue, hits the cue ball, the white ball, with any part other than the tip, it is a foul. If the tip strikes the cue ball, it is a shot. After that, the outcome depends on the game, what balls was struck, whether it was a break shot or in-game shot, the proper object ball, and where the bal struck ends up.
If a player shoots the ball before the shot-clock goes off, and it hits the rim in any way, then yes the clock will reset.
the player who putted the ball receives a one shot penalty and the ball that was hit should be replaced as near as possible to the place it was struck.
If you made the shot off of the eight ball it only counts if you call it off the eight.
If player A has a golf ball on the green and player B hits a shot from off the green which hits player A's, there is no penalty, Player A replaces their ball as close as possible to where their ball was prior being hit, and player B plays their ball as it lies. However, if Player A has a ball on the green, and player B plays a shot on the green, if the balls collide player A must replace their ball and player B receives a two shot penalty and plays their ball as it lies.
Say player A's drive is taken, player B therefore hits the next shot, if he hits it out of bound, the player A hits the next shot, which would be 4 from the middle of the fairway.
