That (per se) doesn't contradict my tip. The mistake is to not go with the more consistent shot with spin and trajectory. The safe and consistent shot doesn't have to mean changing clubs, just technique.

 

Many times I have a higher lofted club than my final decision would dictate optimum. Sometimes I might change clubs but much more often I just change the loft and technique with the club I have to match my tip.

the sand shot was excellent - certainly golf channel worthy considering that I'm high capper. I hit the sand JUST BEHIND the ball, so I was able to backspin the ball quite well.


the putt was quite close, quite close...:cry:

 

It went around the edge of the hole and bounced off to the left.

The percent of time a player was able to get 'up and down' once in a greenside sand bunker (regardless of score).

 

Doesn't have to be for par.

 

I always wondered what would happen if a player hit it in a greenside bunker, hit across the green into another bunker, left it in the bunker, and then holed out his third bunker shot. Would he get 67% sand saves for just that one hole? :)

 

:-D Thanks Erik, that lighthearted scenario started my morning on the right note.   Interesting conundrum.  :hmm:

You (and I) need to practice hitting the back of the cup on anything less than 3 feet!
