  1. I saw a thread about the ball position or something like that in regards to bunker shots. I wanted to take a little time, if possible, to discuss the #1 all time, best tip, best advice, best lesson, you ever had regarding getting out of the bunker the first time... For me personally, I struggled with bunker shots for years and years. Last summer I remember chatting with one of the drummers/percussionists in the Shriners "Million Dollar Band" here in town (I currently play 2nd chair trumpet). He too is a golfer and is also in the Shriners "ACCA Swingers" golf club. Anyway, one thing led to another and we were talking golf, and I casually mentioned that I always had troubles getting out of the bunker. I've been so tempted to just grab the ball and toss it out or kick it out when nobody was looking! He told me (since we're both Freemasons as well as Shriners), "Getting out of a bunker is easy... We all know 'Brother' George Washington on the dollar bill, right? Well, practice this next time you're at a range with a sand trap bunker...." Imagine a dollar bill underneath the golf ball. The ball is covering George Washington's picture. Now, we don't want to hit "Brother George" do we? That would be against our Masonic obligation! What you do is hit the dollar bill out from underneath him. (in other words, hit about 2" behind the ball, while the sand wedge clubface is open, and it will slide underneath the ball). Long story short - I thought about what he said, and tried it out last year at one of the local driving ranges where they have natural grass tees and a practice bunker way off to the side. I tossed an old Pinnacle ball in the trap and shifted my heels of my golf shoes down a bit. Thought long and hard about what he said, used my 58° sand wedge while imagining a dollar bill under the ball, and WHACK! --- I hit it right out of the trap with a descending blow, just like the pros do! It works!!! What do you think of this method?
