This shot is kickin my tail. I have had this 78 yard bunker shot with O.B. behind the green and I've put it O.B. 3 straight days. It seems like it is in that gray area where you can't play it like a true bunker shot or pick it cleanly. I've tried it both ways and picking it cleanly has flown O.B. each time no matter how softly I swing. but of course playing it like a bunker shot leaves it dreadfully short.
My pro was watching me hit the shot and he said that he knew I was in trouble with that shot and he said that is the one shot that he hits where he basically predicts a mishit on the shot. What is a good technique for this type of shot ( club, setup, strike)?
