Hey Quite The Chap here for GolfersRX… the sand man. The sand. The *BLEEPING* sand…in today’s video.
I’m not going to lie, I’m NOT of fan of the sand. If I’m in the sand, sometimes I just throw my ball on the green and then put that little asterisk beside my score that I then ignore at the end of the round. But I have been working on becoming a better sand player and I’ve been using one drill in particular.
1 – Take your normal setup
2 – take your back foot and move it back
3 – ensure that more than 50% of your weight is on your front foot
4 – make your swing
This does two things for me. One, it forces me to make sure most of my weight is on my front foot so I don’t get stuck on my back foot and hit waaaaay behind the ball. And secondly, it actually quiets my legs and makes me use my shoulders and arms more, forcing me to accelerate through the ball.
Until next time, keep it simple
