Does grounding the club constitute “testing the ground?” Or are you only prohibited from actually testing (e.g., making a practice swing) the ground in the hazard where your ball lies?

It is my uunderstanding that once you have played your ball successfully out of the hazard you could ground your club or pick out offending stones and such. But, while your ball is in that hazard, you must refrain form those temptations.
