The look of horror on your face as you reach for the sand wedge, the thoughts of leaving it in results in a tentative short stabbing motion and the ball is knifed, just over the lip of the bunker, zooming across the green and 10 yards over the back, Phew !!!! At least it’s out. Sound familiar, if so just follow my step by step guide to improve your play from greenside bunkers. golf tips golf tips golf tips golf tips golf tips

First of all you need to take a fairly wide square stance (just over shoulder width apart) with the ball positioned just forward of centre and wriggle your feet into the sand (position 1), this is to get a feel for the sand in the bunker and also to lower your base helping you drive through the sand and under the ball. golf tips golf tips golf tips golf tips golf tips

Now you need to open the club face slightly and put 60% of your weight on your left side, keeping it there throughout the shot, see how my hands level with the ball rather than in front of it (position 2), this will make it easier to keep the sole of the club as the first point of contact with the sand. golf tips golf tips golf tips golf tips golf tips
