Bunker Shots for Juniors

Bunker Shots for Juniors

How do you get out of a bunker. It is so easy even a kid can do it and we are going to prove that right now. Luke are you ready to do this? Alright. The first thing I am going to ask him to do is to open up his clubface when he set the club down. The next thing I am going to have him do is open his stance. Then all I am going to ask him to do is hit about two inches behind the ball and splash some sand. Go ahead and rip it. Great golf shot man. Getting out of the sand is one of the easiest shots in golf if you know the proper technique. Open up that clubface, open up that stance, and then splash that sand out of the trap. Now for the most important thing. Luke, rake that bunker. Parents, it is extremely important that your kids learn the proper etiquette and proper maintenance of a golf course. What he is doing right now is taking care of his golf course. Would you want to come up and have to hit a ball out of a big hole that he just made. I would not. So by him raking that trap what he is really doing is taking care of the golf course and making it a better place for other golfers to play.

Proper Stance Width When taking your stance your feet should have the proper width, alignment and flaring in order to build a successful golf swing
Vision Focus: Set Up A common fault in the set up is having your head down and chin too close to your chest, this drill will fix that and allow you to turn effectively and use your legs correctly in the swing
Long Putt Eye Only Drill Stop thinking about how far back to take the putter or how hard to swing, your mind can do that automatically, and you can prove this by practicing your long putts by just looking at the hole and stroking the putt without looking down at the ball
