Wrong information?

Postby Divot » Wed Nov 16, 2016 3:53 pm

Good morning,
In a match, the players were on opposite sides of the green, out of sight of the location of their golf balls. A asked B if his ball was in the bunker. B intentionally lied to his opponent. Such an answer is not wrong information by Rule 9-2b; however, Decisions 9/1 and 8-1/9 give tangential support to a loss of hole penalty to B. Is there a penalty or just bad sportsmanship?

Imo, it's very poor sportsmanship but not a breach of the Rules. A could walk around and see the location of B's ball.
