I posted earlier in the thread that's my toughest shot too, and I got some good advice on how to play it - use anywhere from an 8i to a PW, open the blade, and hit behind it, a blast shot. I'm definitely going to try that.

So here's my question, and I apologize if this is a bit of a thread hijack -

At what distance does a bunker shot stop being a 'blast shot' where you hit behind it & become one of picking it cleanly? 50 yards? 75? 100?

When you can do it with a reasonable chance of a clean hit.  If I can't take at least a 3/4 swing, then trying to pick the ball is risky for me.

    • I've never been into autographs, so this doesn't interest me, but I can see some people thinking it's cool and unique.  Seems smart of Tiger and Bryson to try it.  
    • As Vinsk mentioned, do you know your swing speed or even better ball speed? The cheapest way to experiment would be to simply extend out the current shaft 1 1/2 inches. Although this is more than I ideally like to extend a club, I think in your case it would be without issues. This would cost you all of $17 more or less for the extension and a new grip. If you would rather go the new shaft route, I would drop into the lower 50g weight class to build to 47inch or whatever you want to try. Probably would also want something more butt weighted. That Riptide comes in a CB model at 50g which wouldn't be too expensive. I think you can find them for under $80.
    • Well, I'm going to have to go against the consensus here.  Unless you know for virtual certainty that you ball crossed into the penalty area ask yourself this.  Is there a possibility that your ball could be lost outside the penalty area?  IF so then you would need to act accordingly.  Back to the tee or if E 5 was in effect then out to the fairway and add 2 strokes.  
    • The primary rough was pretty short though. On 18, where a lot of players missed right off the tee, it was short. I agree the long grass was nasty.
    • There was no rough. Those things you mentioned are part of the course design. Rough can be grown or trimmed to ones liking.
