The bunker shot is the only shot in golf where we’re not trying to hit the ball, it’s a special shot, so we need a few special adjustments to play it correctly.

We want to create a stable lower body by flaring our feet and adding some knee flex to allow our stable upper body to freely rotate through the ball.

Utilizing an open clubface and a smooth tempo, allow the club to pass by your hands as it moves through the same with some speed.
