Do not let long bunker shots scare your ball easily up and down.
Greenside Bunker. Some people love them; Others despise him. Either way, they sometimes pop up during a round, and you have to deal with them. Close friends To green Are very standard. But what happens when you land in a bunker 40-yards from the green? When things can get messy.
Finding your ball in the bunker this close to the green (yet far away) can put your brain to the test. You want to make sure that you can get the ball out of the sand and near the flag, but then there is always the risk of monitoring the green.
Rest assured, GOLFTEC's VP of Instruction, Nick Clearwater, has factored in all of the worst conditions and is the perfect tip for those long greenside bunker shots.
Up down and club up
Not only is it your goal to get your ball out of the sand, but you want to get as close to the one-put range as possible. So instead of opting for your typical high lofted wedge, grab a mid-iron like eight.
If you happen to be on plush green grass, you are not going to swing your 8-iron, yet you have to get it through the sand. With the ball move your normal bunker stance towards your main leg. Open your 8-iron face, and swing a little.
By clubbing way Above and by adding some extra oomph, the ball must move up and out of the sand with enough strength to reach the green.
It may seem rather unconventional to lose an 8-iron in the sand with you, but it will increase your chances of getting up and down from those afraid of long bunkers.
