Golf Tip – Chunk

May 22, 2016 Posted by Matt

ChunkTry a chunk and run shot if you’re in a greenside bunker and have a lot of green between you and the pin.  Play the ball a couple inches towards your back foot in your stance.  With your clubface square, lean the shaft of your club slightly forward.  Take an aggressive swing and hit about four inches behind the ball.  It is important you keep your finish low.  You should see the ball pop out of the sand, land on the green, and roll towards the hole.  Try the chunk and run shot instead of trying to hit a perfect shot and flying the ball in the air for thirty or forty yards and you will improve your scores.
