Hit the sand where you intend to hit it

Hit the sand where you intend to hit it

It's no wonder players get so frustrated in the bunker. Many players understand that their weight needs to be forward at address, but they do it the wrong way.

As well-intentioned tip others may say ‘hit in the sand’. An in the sand strike means in many cases a downward movement, when in fact it’s important to continue forward movements in your swings.

The club must glide through the sand and not dig in.

Burrowing comes more from tight arms and hands (keep your wrists and elbows soft) Gliding through the sand comes more out of the rotation.
Do not go for the ‘hit & hope’ strategy. Hit the sand where you intend to hit it.
Continue making forward movements, even in those challenging yet feared bunkers.
