As you all know I'm by far a beginner but I just can't figure out the bunker shot so this past weekend I started just chipping out of the bunker same as I would on a tight lie. The taller the lip either the more lofted club I used OR the more I opened the face. No sand blast at all just a regular chip shot with a reasonable backswing. No long swing, just a short controlled chip and I actually had good results. I even controlled the distance reasonably well considering my skill level.
Am I going down the wrong road here? What are your thoughts on this guys?
