Tip of the Day

The Sand Shot - Swing Basics

Success with the explosion shot is simply a matter of sound technique combined with a little practice. Understanding the basic theory behind sand-shot technique will go a long way to improving your bunker play.

Take a 'slice' of sand from under the ball.

Wiggle your feet into the sand for better balance.

Choke down on the club. Open the clubface so that it points to the flag

The sand shot is not that difficult to master. Keep loose and follow through. Cock the wrists early in the backswing and hit down and through the ball. The ball will be 'splashed' out of the bunker on a cushion of sand.
