A New Bunker Technique For Better Results

Mr. Short game has a new approach to get your bunker game back in shape.

Conventional teaching generally has you take an open stance with an open club face and swing along the target line. This generally results in a steep attack angle, which doesn’t always work well in soft sand.

Instead of a steep attack angle why not use a use a shallow attack angle. To ingrain this new feeling, we’ll firstpractice the wrong technique to get the right result.

    Assuming neutral grip …

    Ball position with changed stance:
    – closed / 100 balls
    – square / thereafter

    Required stance/ swing changes due to sand:
    – firm
    – soft

    Just curious what loft you are using in the bunker?

    Unclear about ball position……forward (off the left foot) or in the middle of your stance?

    Matt-I have had reasonable results this year out of greenside bunkers UNLESS it is a longer shot to other side of large green.should these suggestions in the video help that?Also,does the sand consistency merit consideration?
