Oftentimes we hear the horror stories of being stuck in the sand. Most players are extremely afraid to hit in the bunker and even more nervous to get out of it.
Now, the dreaded bunker shot can be taken advantage of by following these pro tips!
Set-up is key.
Nine out of 10 players I see have an incorrect set-up when they approach their ball in the bunker. Set-up must be correct in order to get a solid strike and gain confidence with your sand play. The stance must be wide and open to the target, with ball position towards the front heel. Open that club face!
Don't be afraid to swing aggressively.
Turn through the ball and create speed. Acceleration is crucial in getting the ball up and out of the bunker. Take a few practice swings with the club finishing in front of you versus sticking in the sand.
Maintain the angle of the club throughout your entire swing, start to finish. The club face should be pointing towards your face at finish.
