Hey guys, in this video you’re going to see one of the bunker videos from our premium membership. So, this is one of the videos you get with a paid membership. It’s part of a bigger course that we did to get out of the bunker. We wanted you guys to see this first one just to get started with the setup.

The bunker shot is the only shot in golf that I’m hitting where I’m not actually trying to hit the ball first. I’m trying to hit the sand behind the ball. The setup is based around that.

What you should notice first is my feet are a lot wider than normal. Out of a bunker, my ankles are much wider than my shoulders. I’m also sitting into my stance a little bit more than normal. I’m very bent down into my knees and I’m sitting. I’m sitting on a horse as the sensation here.

In terms of the weight in my feet, I’m going to have more weight forward, kind of pressed into my left quad, maybe up to 70 or 80 percent of my weight and my pressure is going to be in that lead leg. So feet are wide. I’m sitting down, my knees are bent, and I’ve got a lot of pressure into that lead leg, so that’s the main piece with my lower body.

In terms of my upper body, I see a lot of people go wrong with the spine angle. I want the spine angle to be straight up and down, were even slightly leaning towards the target. I’m trying to preset steep setup pieces out of the bunker so I can be shallow with my swing. So, in terms of my shoulders, I’m not going to be tilted to the right at all. I’m going to maybe have my left shoulder a little bit lower than my right shoulder and my left hip a little bit lower than my right. I’m presetting myself a little bit more forward.

In my setup, my club face is going to be quite a bit open. If I were to draw a line, sort of down the leading edge of my club, the clubs angled essentially where the front part of the club is open to the point where it’s at or just slightly forward of my left toe.

Next up is ball position. I like to have the ball in the middle or slightly forward of middle for a stock bunker shot. So, if you were to see from face on relative to my stance, that ball position’s going to be just a little bit inside of my left heel for a stock setup.

That would be my stock set up. My feet are nice and wide. My knees are bent. I’m leaning into my left quad. My upper body is tilted a little bit forward. My left shoulder, a little bit lower than my right. My club face is open.
