  • How do you hit short bunker shots ?

    I'm talking bunker shots when the pin is only about 10 to 15 feet away !

    My bunker shots come out low with loads of run and in these warm conditions, the ball finishes off the green !

    Thanks !

      I tried all that and it didn't work.

      Do you use more wrists on bunker shots ?

      I find similar type lob shots with a lob wedge very easy by the way.

        You have to accellerate through the sand. "Scoot and Spin" to quote Dave Pelz.

        Your clubhead must move so fast through the sand, that it pulls a layer of sand under the ball, generating backspin.
        The shot is fairly similar to the cut lob, but more extreme.

        Stand very open, clubface VERY open, swingpath very out-to-in, cutting across the ball.

          yes , break the wrists almost immediately,this will give you the steep descent into the sand which should pop the ball up and out . give it a try in your practice bunker and experiment with how much open the club face needs to be for distance hit .

            one thing to try that works for me.

            lob wedge, open club face. open stance. outside to inside swing--nice and soft.

            give it a try to see if it works for you.

              A good drill is to make sure the butt of the grip finishes pointing right of you're navel at impact.( unless you're name is Adam )

                I just been practising and realized something really stupid.

                When I do bunker shots I grip the club as normal and then open it.

                What I did today was open the club first and then place my hands on the club.

                It felt miles different.

                I did a few shots and found it alot easier to get the ball out and onto the green.
