GOLF TIPS - SAND SHOT 
GREENSIDE BUNKER
If you’ve just recently played a round of golf, if you really struggle with
your sand game, this golf lesson is going to help you a lot here.
It’s a very difficult thing to do, but it’s so simple to get the right setup.
 
Now, here’s the golf lesson for setting up for a bunker shot. The ball goes across from your left
foot always wh
en the ball’s setting up. The weight goes on your left leg 70%. And from here the
arms swing up and down as you turn through. Make sure you turn through.
What you’re trying to do is you’re trying to displace some sand. You’re trying to put a little sand
between the club face and the golf ball, and lift it and throw it out of the bunker.
So, the setup: Weight left, ball off your left foot, full arm swing. But don’t transfer your weight
over to your right side. Stay on top of that left leg. Go up and down, even if you have to put thetoe up in the air to stop you from sliding backwards.
Here’s a master golf lesson if the ball is buried. If it’s buried, this swing won’t work because theclub won’t go steep enough. So, put the ball in the middle of your stance,
weight over on your
left leg. Don’t open the face, and catch a little sand behind the ball and throw it out on the green.
 I hope this golf lesson works. Give it a shot.

GETTING OUT OF THE SAND
I have a tip on getting out of the sand that you’re just going to love not matter if you’re a new
golfer
or if you’re a +3 handicap.
 
When you have a buried bunker shot, you either make a great big smash at it and the ball doesn’tmove but a foot or two, or, if you happen to hit it out, it takes off on a line drive and it doesn’t
have any backspin on it, and you whack it over the green.
 
The reason that you either have trouble getting out of the sand or skulling it over the green, is
because on a sand wedge the trailing edge has a bounce on it. It’s a curve and it makes the
leading edge sit up off the ground.
 
So, if you try to hit the golf ball out of a buried lie the conventional way, the back of this bounce
will run into the sand and carom off the sand, and you’ll hit a skull.
 
What you should try to do; is the next time you’re getting out of the sand and you have a buried
lie, put a little weight on your left leg, but tilt the handle over so the leading hits the sand firstand digs into the ground.
 
It doesn’t matter how deep; you can bury it all you want. Ball in the middle of your stance,
weight on your left leg, handle on your left leg, up and down, and it will pop right out of there.
You won’t believe it. You’ll love this.
 
So, in closing remember this: getting out of the sand means you need to get the bounce off theback.

BUNKER SHOTS
This lesson is entitled, “How to Get out of Bunkers”, and everyone knows how frustrating theycan be if you don’t know the proper mechanics to get out of them. But the bottom line is, for the
pros, bunker shots are some of the easiest shots on the course.These steps will ensure that you have the right mechanics for getting out of bunkers. Once
you’ve read these steps, practice them and get used to hitting out of bunkers, and they will
become just as natural as a regular short game shot. These steps will give you the solidfoundation that you need for bunker success.Here are the steps: (note: These steps apply to a normal sand bunker. Not wet or hard sand)1. Choke down on the golf club (Have your right index finger about an inch from the bottom of the grip). Choking down
gives you the control with the club and also allows you to “feel” the shot
rather than hitting it.2. Narrow your stance a little and play the ball a few inches forward in your stance. This will alsoaid in controlling the shot, and it will contribute to higher ball flight.3. Dig into the sand with your feet a little and get comfortable.4. Keep your body completely still throughout (no twisting hips).5. Start your swing with your arms and keep your swing vertical. The end of the grip butt shouldbe pointed at the ball
at the top of your backswing. (Don’t bring the club straight back,
remember steep is better here!)6. Your left arm should be parallel to the ground and fully extended at the top of your swing.
7. Then start your downswing at the sand focusing to hit 1 inch behind the ball. Don’t focus on
hitting the ball, hit the sand an inch behind and the ball will get out every time!8. Your arms and body follow the ball as it leaves the sand.
9. Remember steep angle into the sand is key here, however you don’t have to swing too hard,
we are not blasting the ball out we are advancing it.Drill:Go into a bunker and take 3 clubs your pitching wedge, sand wedge, and a lob wedge(if you have
one). Remember that you can get creative with shots; just because it’s a sand wedge doesn’tmean that you’ll “feel” the most comfortable or give you the best results. But I want you to
notice the difference in design and performance.Regardless, hit a few shots with each club and really notice the difference in how the ball comesout of the sand. Then choose the club that bests suits you. But remember on all these clubsswing steep and hit 1 inch behind the ball. You can even draw a line 1-2 inches behind the balland aim for that line.At home, office, or at the course take practice swings and focus on bringing the club up at asteep angle. Watch as your grip end points to the ground. And stop there
this is the positionthat you want to be in. A great way to see if the grip is pointed over the ball is sticking a tee inthe grip handle. Do that a few times to ensure that you know where to stop the golf club andstart your steep downswing. Then the downswing is easy! Just hit an inch behind the ball.Practice this for a few days then go have fun in a bunker!
