Very surreal watching that kid get kicked out of the playoff over grounding his club in that pseudo-bunker.

1. Why let people stand in a bunker all day that's in play? Bunkers aren't typically 75-100 yards off the fairway/green.

2. Why would a tourney official not tell the kid before he gets to the trap that it's indeed a trap and you have to play it as such?

I just think a little common sense/common courtesy would have been appropriate in that situation.

Agreed, nobody won with that outcome. The PGA has to defend its rules to people who will never understand them, and we got stuck watching the other two try to out-choke each other out of the title.

Seriously, the way those two played on the last hole was pathetic.
