Golf Tip – Difficult Bunker Shot

November 24, 2015 Posted by Matt

What if you have a difficult bunker shot where the ball is below your feet and you are standing above it in the grass?  With good technique, you can pull off this shot even though it is difficult.  First, widen your stance and bend down to the ball by flexing your knees and not bending from your waist.  In this way, you will use your lower body to support the swing.  Keep your lower body still and stay down to the shot while you swing.  Aim to the left and use a good arm-and-hands swing to power the ball out.  When possible, practice this difficult bunker shot, as it will come in handy when you face it on the course.
