During Head to Head matches, I play the 9 hole stroke play in Beverly Hills, if you hit a shot and it lands in a green side bunker it takes at least 3 shots to get out. I have experienced this numerous times and it is not course specific. First shot attempt using a full swing the ball barely gets up in the air and goes about a yard. Second shot, same as the first. On the third attempt now using a flop shot the ball will come out. I know what you're thinking I should have used the flop on the first attempt, but it will produce the same result. Initially I thought this was only happening on Par 3's, but today I landed in a green side bunker on a Par 4 and it was the same result. During a match it has affected my shot as well as my opponent.
I have written down the course and the hole# when it occurs. This does not happen in regular stroke play matches, only head to head coin matches.
