4~ Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2001 Golf, Etc. Bu,et,n, Progress,re, Rec$ietin, p Playing by the rules in bunkers iiii o one This past week, I was help- ing out with Feather River College's Golf Academy. This was a four-day event in which forty people from all over Northern California came to Graeagle to sharpen their games, make new friends and enjoy Graeagle's unique atmosphere. While I was conducting a session on bunker play, a sweet lady named Ruth asked me to tell them what they can and cannot do in a bunker according to the rules of golf. After the session, the thought occurred to me that maybe some readers might want to know that informa- tion. So here are the rules of bunker conduct according to the USGA: A bunker is considered a "hazard" on the golf course, like a water hazard, only smaller and riffled with sand. is all. If the ball is in a spot from which you cannot ad- vance it, such as buried un- der the front lip, you may de- clare it "unplayable," remove it from its ugly situation, and do one of three things, all of which will cost you one stroke: a) Play a ball as nearly as possible to the spot from which the original ball was last played; or b) Drop a ball in the bunker within two club-lengths of the spot where the ball lays, but not nearer the hole; or c) Drop a ball in the bunker behind the point where the ball lays, keeping that point directly between the hole and the spot on which the ball is dropped. If you find your ball or stance in casual water inside a bunker, you may do one of two things: Drop the ball, without penalty, in the bunker as stroke, drop the ball outside the bunker, .keeping the point where the ball lays di- rectly between the hole and the spot on which the ball is dropped, with no limit to how far back the ball may be dropped. Now let's say two balls are so close to each other in a bunker that one cannot be played without moving the other. First, mark one bah with something like a tee. Then after the other ball is knocked out, smooth the sand, replace the marked ball, and play on. If the ball comes to rest next to a bunker rake. the rake may be carefully re- moved so as to not move the ball. Sticks, stones, broken bones, and other natural ob- jects are loose impediments and cannot be removed, un- less you want to add another stroke to your score. guides jailed State game wardens said today they have served ar- rest and search warrants leading to the jailing of two Humboldt County men in separate cases involving ille- gally guided elk hunts and the illegal killing of Roo- sevelt elk for hunting clients. Department of Fish and Game (DFG) wardens said they booked Gene Lewis Lo- gan, 30, and Lawrence Ed- ward Vaughn, 35, both of Orick, Wednesday on $20,000 arrest warrants, charging them with multiple viola- tions of the Fish and Game Code. Wardens also carried out searches of both sus- pects' residences. DFG warden Paul Weldon said two teams of undercov- er officers posing as hunters each paid $300 for guiding services during the Sept. 5-14 Klamath Elk Hunt in north- ern Humboldt and southern Del Norte counties. Neither Logan nor Vaughn is licensed by the state to guide hunters, the DFG said. Fish and Game alleges that in one instance, Vaughn led undercover wardens of the DFG's special operations unit miles from the legal hunt area to a location where two elk had already been shot, telling the offi- cers, "I've got two down for you." The DFG said an adult elk cow had been killed, but a wounded spike bull had es- caped. In a separate episode, un- by undercover DFG dercover officers were guid- ed by Logan into Redwood National Park, where a bull elk was killed and then transported into the legal hunt area to be gutted and tagged as a legal kill, Fish and Game alleges. Logan was booked on mis- demeanor charges of illegal- ly guiding hunters without a guide's license and illegally killing elk. Vaughn faces two counts each of illegally guiding, ille- gally taking elk and illegally possessing elk and one count each of the illegal sale of elk and taking elk without a li- cense and tag. Each misdemeanor charge carries a maximum penalty of up to six months in jail or a $1,000 fine, or both. If the state is able to prove the de- fendants were engaged in a commercial use of the ani- mals, the two could face up to a year in jail and fines of up to $30,000, the DFG said. Fish and Game said addi- tional charges are expected, among them the illegal take of deer. D'uring their con- tacts with Vaughn, under- cover wardens were shown fresh antlers from three deer--a full week before the rifle deer hunting season opened, according to Wel- don. Wardens said they had suspected Vaughn and Lo- gan of running illegal guid- ing operations during past elk hunting seasons in the area, in part because the pair tended to show up at elk hunt orientation sessions that are required for hunters lucky enough to draw one of the limited elk tags. The DFG said the first bull elk was killed near the legal hunt area but inside the na- tional park about 10 miles east of Orick. The cow and spike were shot about three miles west of Orick and some 15 miles from the hunt area. Undercover wardens said they contacted Vaughn with two days left in the hunting season on the pretense of wanting help finding an elk. The suspect allegedly asked them, "Does it matter who shoots it?" When told that it didn't matter, Vaughn re- portedly revealed that two elk had just been shot, ac- cording to the DFG. Fish and Game said teams of six game wardens served the search and arrest war- rants at the two residences early Wednesday morning. Initially, they recovered a ri- fle believed to be used in the elk killings, the three sets of deer antlers and both pho- tographs and paperwork be- lieved to be evidence of the illegal guiding activities. The arrest warrants were issued by the Humboldt County District Attorney's office and were signed by Su- perior Court Judges Marilyn B. Miles and W. Bruce Wat- son.
