Tip of the Day

Those challenging short bunker shots

Bunker shots can be troublesome at the best of times. For many players, those short bunker shots (of 10 to 15 feet) are the most challenging. You’re not thinking of getting up and down, but about getting out. Failing that, there’s the fear of sailing the ball over the green. Here’s how to cure those short bunker shot blues.

In basic terms, your follow-through dictates the distance the ball travels. Hence, a short follow-through equals a short bunker shot; a long follow-through equals a long bunker shot. So, when you’re positioned in the bunker close to the hole, be sure your backswing is longer than your follow-through.

This way, it’s easier to control the tempo, which should be slow and rhythmic. Your arms should feel very soft and limber, not tight or tense
