No, but I believe a player can declare it unplayable and therefore take the penalty associated with that rule.


I think you can take a stroke for unplayable and drop within two club lengths (still in the bunker) or along a straight line back from the flag as far as you want...I think. There are rules that specifically address unplayables.

In a fun round, you may consider using your hand wedge to keep the round fun. No sense in taking 5 to get out of a bunker, possibly hurting your wrists, and ruining your spirit for the game...then go practice bunker shots later.

When a golf ball is dropped onto the pavement, it compresses upon impact and stores some of the energy. This stored energy is then released, causing the ball to bounce back up into the air. The elasticity of the ball and the pavement's surface play a role in dictating the height and speed of the bounce.
