Simple Bunker Play Tips

Following these bunker play tips can help you make the most of a bad situation and get the ball out of the sand. In fact, your main concern should be getting the ball out of the bunker, even if that means hitting it backwards. Don’t be greedy and try to hit the ball too far with a straight club; chances are that you’ll simply be playing another shot from the sand. Your clubface should be open and you’ll want to make sure the ball is at the front of your stance, as that helps with its upward path. And you also want to make sure you hit the sand before the ball, to minimize your chances of leaving the ball in there. Finally, don’t think negative thoughts when you step up to the bunker; as many golfers know, positive thinking is a big part of the game.
