With wa­ter long, a bunker skull is in­stant death.

Rory McIlroy made the hacker mis­take of skulling a sand shot at the 2013 WGC-Match Play. In the first round against Shane Lowry, McIlroy was 1 down when he hit into desert scrub near the 15th green. Forced to play his next shot lefty, he hit it into a bunker. McIlroy boned the sand shot 20 me­tres over the green, and walked right to the next tee, con­ced­ing the hole. He lost the match 1 down.
