Tracking Bunker Sand onto the Green

After hitting your bunker shot,  please take the time to hit the sole of your golf shoes with your wedge to release sand caught in the cleats or nubs of the shoes.  The professionals are very conscious of conditions and always knock the sand off their shoes.  Common etiquette suggests you should leave the course in the same or better condition than you found it.  Remember that you may be the next player to have to hit your putt through the sandy footprints.  It is especially important to do this in the early morning when the dew is still on the golf course.
