Win the "Bunker Shots" Question of the Week prize on our Facebook Page
  The practice of not marking a ball when it's near the hole is called "backstopping" and is becoming a hot topic on tour. This practice can aid another player, should they choose to use the stationary ball as a means to stop theirs.
Do you think "backstopping should be allowed on the professional tours?

The new Bunker Shots prize is a TaylorMade Burner 7-wood. When it comes to playing high, soft approaches that will hold the green, this club will outperform any mid-iron you have in your bag.
