PLAYING BUNKER SHOT TECHNIQUE OUT OF COMPACT SAND. Improve golf swing for ultimate golf lessons free.
All being well a nice regular bunker shot that splashes out means sending your wedge down into the sand under the ball. A large patch of sand is blasted out of the trap, along with the ball, which hopefully lands safely on the green.
This is the best way to play a bunker shot when you are in a greenside bunker.
When the sand is hard, however, it doesn’t really work at all… the explosion shot really isn’t an option.
A lot of the time the club will bounce off the top of the sand, and the leading edge will hit the middle of the ball. The end result is a shot that comes out low and extremely fast.
So, the first thing you need to do when you find yourself in wet sand in a greenside bunker is eliminate the explosion shot as an option.
Use your wrist more
Move ball back in your stance
Do not open up the face
Rotate your chest and stay stable.
This simple tips for bunker shots out of compact sand will help you strike the sand before the ball so you avoid the club ‘bouncing’ on the sand causing the thin strike.
lace a little more weight on your left side at impact and you are looking to blast it out with a square face and by taking plenty of sand.
The ball will come out with plenty of roll so try to allow for that as you work out how hard to hit the shot.
