Caddie’s bunker infraction proves ruinous at U.S. Amateur 

Published

on

At the U.S. Amateur at Bandon Dunes a rare and cruel ruling on the final hole on Thursday evening put paid to Segundo Oliva Pinto’s chances in his last 16 match against Tyler Strafaci.

All tied up heading down the par 5 last, Oliva Pinto found the greenside bunker with his second shot. While assessing where to land his third shot, Oliva Pinto’s caddie, who is a local caddie from the resort, touched the sand with his hand which was deemed to have been testing the conditions of the bunker.

The local looper denied to rules officials that he touched the sand, despite the evidence proving otherwise.

Rule 12.1/a states that: before making a stroke at a ball in a bunker, a player must not deliberately touch sand in the bunker with a hand, club, rake or other object to test the condition of the sand to learn information for the next stroke. 

Unfortunately for Oliva Pinto, caddies are included in that rule, and the error in judgment proved fatal with the hole concession resulting in the end of the match.

Following the incident, Oliva Pinto was philosophical, saying: “What happened, happened”.
