Golf Tip – Fairway

June 28, 2016 Posted by Matt

fairwayIf you are struggling with fairway bunker shots, try swinging at about 80 percent of full speed.  You’ll need to use one more club than normal and choke up on the club slightly.  Play the ball slightly back of center.  Keep your lower body still.  Most importantly, you want to release your hands early in the downswing so you are approaching the ball shallow at impact.  You do not want to hit down on the ball.  A good swing thought is “all arms”.  Try this shot from a fairway bunker and you’ll see you are able to hit the ball first with a slight divot in front of the ball.
