The case for doing away with bunker rakes. Golf, much more than other sports, is a game of good and bad luck. So why not just do away with bunker rakes?

So wonders David Owen in his monthly column in Golf Digest. In making his case, Owen cites Pine Valley, here in our backyard, where there are miles and miles of bunkers and sand but nary a rake to be found.

The club’s maintenance regularly smooths everything out, but, if your ball ends up in a footprint (or behind a rock or under a cactus), that’s your tough luck, and you deal with it. As you should.

When the bogus assistant persisted, they told him to "go jump in a lake."
