Fairway Bunker Shots
In this video, Mike discusses the finer points of hitting fairway bunker shots.
Mike’s Rules For Hitting Fairway Bunker Shots
Use a club with enough loft to get the ball out of the bunker. Make sure you get it out!
Take one extra golf club. So if you determine that you are 7-iron distance away, take a 6-iron.
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.
