Bunker question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have been playing a new course recently and I am having major problems getting out of bunkers. My problem is I am either picking the ball clean and going over the green or I am blading it and usually going over the green anyway. If I get lucky it will hit the lip and roll onto the green.  The sand is much softer on this course than I am used to so I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not.  I am just looking for a swing thought to catch the sand first. Thanks.

Everything Mike said and focus one inch behind the ball.  That is your beginning entry point.  Experiment from there for your spot.

If you don't have a practice area, when you are on the course and the opportunity presents itself drop a few balls and practice.
