    I kicked a rake

    When I failed with my second attempt at getting my ball out of a bunker I kicked a nearby rake - there was no cat in sight. As the rake was in the bunker - as so unfortunately was my ball - should I have penalised myself? I got out third go.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And with just the October medal to go - I've got to 8.3

    Is this the follow-up to Katy Perry's "I kissed a girl?"

    No!

    Just think...you can move a rake that's in the bunker whether or not it affects your next shot. As long as you don't 'test the sand' by doing so - and after a couple of shots already, you are hardly likely to use a rake to do that!

    You can rake the sand in the bunker before you take your shot if it's to clean up.

    What I thought at the time...but just checking as I'd never done it before - and to my eternal shame I've never seen anyone do it before.

    @paddyk - if the rake had been correctly positioned in the bunker there was a chance it could have pinged me when I gave it a kick - but it wasn't

    That's good!

    Another option is a 2017 re-make of The Clash' "I fought the law"

    On a serious note the rake is a moveable obstruction. The rules do not define how you may move it.

    A cat on the other hand (or should that be foot) is an outside agency.
