hits her drive into a freshly sanded fairway bunker.
She takes an 8-iron into the hazard and digs her
feet in the sand. Seeing that her ball is lying well
she changes her mind about which club to use,
returns to her bag to fetch her 7-wood and takes her
stance a second time, digging-in a little further.
She plays a good shot from the bunker just onto the
putting green. Before making her putt she clears a
number of leaves from the putting green and sees an
acorn lightly embedded in her putting line. She
easily brushes the acorn away with the back of her
hand and repairs the hole that is left with her
pitch mark repairer. Her first putt slides by the
outside of the hole but she easily holes the return
putt. What is Daisy's score for the hole?
