How To Hit Out Of Fairway Bunkers
One of the fun benefits of being a golf blogger is getting to spend time playing golf with great instructors. I recently played with Mike Maggs on my home course, The Santaluz Club, and we made a few quick videos on issues that arose during our round. In this video, Mike shares some tips on how to hit out of fairway bunkers, and this long bunker particular.
- You want to hit the ball first
- Use the balls of your feet to brace yourself in the sand and choke up on the grip
- Take a slightly abbreviated swing for more control
- Make sure you’re going for an angle that’s easy to get out to
