Greenside Bunker

Quick Greenside Bunker Blog for today.  I drew the below image for a student today in the bunker.  The main line is where the club is entering (target is to the right of the photo).  The goal is to take a piece of toast length and depth out of the sand.  The top box was to show that portion of sand would not be there after the strike.  Then with the ball I drew a little rectangle around the ball with the ball placed in the middle of the slice of bread (rectangle).  We are not looking to dig holes and take loafs of bread out.  Moving too much sand takes too much energy and is hard to control the outcomes consistent.  So when you’re in there splash the sand out and let the ball go for the ride.  Trust the loft and your entry spot to get the job done.
