Fairway Bunker Shots

In this video, Mike discusses the finer points of hitting fairway bunker shots.

Mike’s Rules For Hitting Fairway Bunker Shots

  1.  Use a club with enough loft to get the ball out of the bunker.  Make sure you get it out!
  2.  Take one extra golf club.  So if you determine that you are 7-iron distance away, take a 6-iron.
  3. Set-Up:  Make sure you hit the golf ball first.  Have a wider base to stabilize the legs and play the ball a little bit back in your stance.   Limit the leg motion for a better strike.

Hopefully these tips will help you hit your bunker shots better.
