Having troubles in the bunker around the green?
It’s not about how hard you hit the ball just to try and get it out.
See it this way; you need to place the ball on the green for an easy putt. So, you’ll need precision. How can you be precise if you’re swinging at the ball like a lumberjack?
When in a bunker, try to have a wide stance with your feet anchored at least 1 cm into the sand. Picture your swing as if it was an approach with a sand wedge 20m away from the green on the fairway.
Keep your swing smooth and focus on the follow through.
Practice this with no expectations, just to have the feeling the movement and it will pay off.
