Top 10 Bunker Tip Videos
The first thing I see golfers doing when they are in the bunker, they take too much sand, taking too much sand slows the golf club down and therefore getting a duff.
So it’s very important when we’re playing bunker shots we do hit exactly the right amount of sand, and this video exercise is a really great way of stopping you hitting the ball fat.
What you’d like to see is as you hit through the ball in the bunker, that the hips and the chest work downwards and forward through the ball to a good follow through position. Body weight finishing on the left leg, right leg getting quite light.
You can very occasionally get a fairway wood out of a bunker, but it’s probably going to have to be the right sort of bunker, the right sort of shot and the right sort of wood.
The shanks, for a lot of people are more prevalent in the bunker and that’s because they’re using an open face shot.
If you are use to hitting two inches behind the ball but you still don’t seem like you can get the ball out on the green this is a good exercise to make sure that you are always accelerating through.
If you are the type of golfer that goes in the bunker, gets the ball out every time and you’re relatively happy with that, maybe this little tip here can help you play better bunker shots by controlling the distance of the bunker shot.
So one of the challenges that we often face when we’re playing bunker shots is they are not always flat, they are not always smooth and the height we have to hit over changes greatly. And that’s kind of one of the nice things about playing golf is that we get these challenges from time to time and it’s all about how you face these challenges.
Another really good practice exercise to get your bunker shots to come out crisply with a good strike and travelling the right distance and we call this one the money ball.
When you’re watching bunker shots being played on the TV, you’ll often hear the commentators talking about how the player blasted that one out onto the green.
