Golf Tip – Fairway Bunker

fairway bunkerIs it okay to hit a hybrid from a fairway bunker?  Absolutely!  If you need to a hit a long shot from a fairway bunker, you may use a hybrid to get the job done.  However, you need to make sure there is no lip to the bunker before you try the hybrid.  Play the ball back about one inch from where you would normally play the club from the fairway.  Keep you legs and feet still and use your upper body to power the swing.  Strike the ball first and skim a small amount of sand in front of the ball.  This should get the ball up and out so that it carries a good distance.
