Tip of the Week – Bunker Practice

Having trouble hitting the correct amount of sand from the bunker?  This is one of Jim Mclean’s favorite drills.

Make several footprints in the sand. Then take practice swings erasing the footprints you just made. Try not to take a lot of sand, but just lightly brush the length of the footprint with the bottom or sole of your sand wedge.

After you feel comfortable erasing the footprint, place a ball in the middle of a footprint and make the same swing. This should help take the correct amount of sand improve your bunker game.
