Video Golf Tip | 50 Yard Bunker Shots

Here is a tip on one of the hardest shots in golf - the 50 or 60 yard bunker shot. My best advice is do not get into this position, but in case you do you have to know how to get out. You can take your sand wedge, blast it out and obviously come up short of your target. At least you would be out of the trap. But if you want to try to reach your target and get it all the way there you want to use a different club. I can use a pitching wedge or even an 8-iron and hit it just like a sand shot. Lay the clubface down open, put the ball forward in your stance, aim to left, and I am going to blast the ball out with an explosion shot with my 8-iron. The ball is forward in my stance, clubface open, aim to the left. It is a difficult shot, but with an 8-iron opened up to play like a sand wedge you can get the ball all the way to the pin.

How to Lag Putt Get a feel for how hard to hit the ball, concentrate on the hole and make a loose stroke
Pull Cures Pulled shots come from a closed clubface or the path swing, most players suffer from the latter as they start their downswing with their shoulders causing their path to go to the left
Rate Your Grip Pressure Monitor whether you are holding the club with the correct grip pressure and pressure points
