Pick It Clean From Fairway Bunkers

There are two ways to hit an iron out of a fairway bunker: picking it cleanly or hitting it like a normal shot. If you’re not worried about hitting a great shot and just want to get the ball out of the bunker, try to half-blade the ball. By taking stock of where the buttons of your shirt are at address, you can make sure that you’re not getting lower through impact and therefore not taking up any sand.

The natural momentum of your swing and your club will slightly stretch your arms, but by ensuring a tall swing using your arms, you’ll pick the ball out of the bunker and get some height on it as well.

"Serious about your golf game? Willing to put the work in this off season to improve? If yes, you will want to sign up for the new Plane Truth Golf App. It is a systematic approach supported by online lessons, a library of state of the art swing video clips, a Forum, where ideas are posted for comment. Most important is a well thought out system that allows you to best understand the key parts of downswing, backswing, address and impact/ follow through. Identity your swing issue and use a system of shallow or steep corrections. I am a new user of this app but not new to Plane Truth Golf."
