Video Golf Tip | Long Bunker Shots
By Katherine Marren

Many people do not realize that you can use more than you sand wedge to hit great shots out of the bunker. I am faced with a long shot, almost 30 yards, and what I am going to do is use my 9-iron because that is my regular 90 yard shot and I want the ball to go just one third of that distance. This is a great tip for women who do not hit the ball that far with their lob wedge or their sand wedge for long bunker shots. Now when I hit this shot with some of my other irons I am still going to blast it out of the bunker. I am going to use my same greenside technique that I would use for my sand wedge with the ball in the middle of my stance, face open, and I am going to take some sand. Using other clubs besides for your sand wedge will give you a little bit more distance on long bunker shots and is a real effective way to get the ball close to the hole.
