So my buddy hit this shot.  It is in the rough.  It didn't plug and actually bounced and yet it says it is in the sand.

So a couple of things.  If it actually is part of the sand, when the ball hit, it should NOT have bounced.  If it hit the rough and then hopped in, it should have a better lie and not be plugged.  Neither is the case.

This is a graphical issue me thinks

So, you probably got rough overlapping the sand and its displaying the underlying texture. Look like a pretty good lie for where it is at. Talk about nit picking.

Seriously, either way the lie was what it is, 83%, sand/rough who gives a hoot. Maybe the player from the day before had to splash out a wedge side ways and got sand in the rough.

It was definitely in the sand and you could see sand coming up.

This is bug reporting right? So I thought I'd report a graphical  bug, especially considering it didn't act like a sand trap when the ball hit.
