Welcome to Bunker Training


This More Pars Training is a focus on bunker play. Let’s get you confident once and for all out of the bunkers!

1. Lie and Lay of Land
2. Technique
3. Tough Shots

Like a slo-motion horror flick, a player cringes as their ball rolls into the bunker…yet again. Previous bunker nightmares flood your vision. “OMG, I got an 8 on this hole the last time I was in that bunker!” In this training, you’ll discover the bunker is pretty cool place to be in.

Are you ready for more pars? Let’s get to it!


On completion of your Training, you’ll receive a virtual achievement certificate that you can print and share on social touting your awesomeness!

  1. After taking this course, went to range to put it in practice and the results were great. The keys for me were the square in hard and wet sand and the face being open in softer sand. It was easier to get it out of the Bunker which is a weakness in my golf game. Now off to chipping and pitching. Hope there is some flop shot tips there .

    Have very Blessed Day,

    Thank you,
