Bunker Damaged by Running Water. RoG, Definitions Ground Under Repair, Rule 25-1b(ii)(a); Rule 25-1b(ii)(b) and Rule 25-1c(ii). Local Rule/Temporary Local Rule. Revised 2014-12-02.
IN DEPTH: This temporary local rule allows the player either to take relief, without penalty in the bunker, under Rule 25-1b(ii)(a) or, with one stroke penalty outside the bunker, under Rule 25-1b(ii)(b) from areas in the bunker where running water, from for example heavy rain, an overflowing burn, a leaky sprinkler or the irrigation system, has exposed stones or created hollows or furrows in the bunker. The Committee may deem that interference by damage caused by running water with the players stance is, of itself, interference under this Rule. The Committee may mark a single damage as ground under repair and then this local rule is superfluous.
Note: If damage in bunkers caused by running water occurs frequently on the course the Committee may use this Temporary Local Rule, remove the words the bunker on hole ... and let the rule be a permanent part of the Local Rules at the club.

Suggested wording. The title, the Rules reference and the penalty may be removed when this Rule is placed together with other local rules under a specific headline.
