You will find a lie like this in those vast fairway bunkers.
What makes this shot tough? Fear. Fear of the tiny rocks surrounding the ball. And of course, the tall grass that I’ll need to dodge in this shot, as well. Let’s simplify this shot with the right set up, so you can execute a fearless shot back onto the short hairs.
Put your sunglasses on for protection from flying, tiny rocks!
Take a wider base for more stability. Play the ball slightly back of center to ensure catching the ball first.
Execute with a half backswing at half speed to ensure you stay in the shot.
The key with this shot is keeping your hands ahead through impact. Your finish will be low and abbreviated.
