Bunker prac­tice with­out sand

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - The Golf Life -

Frus­trated with his own bunker play and the lack of time to prac­tice in a sand bunker, Con­rad van Niek­erk, a me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer from Richards Bay, in­vented a train­ing aid he could use in his gar­den. Like a bad bunker shot, if you hit it fat it stays be­hind, a thin shot flies too far, and a shank goes side­ways. “I love how Pocket Bunker com­ple­ments the sim­ple ba­sics of bunker play – just take the legs out,” says PGA pro­fes­sional John Dick­son (The Els Club) who has en­dorsed the prod­uct. “You can prac­tice with it off any sur­face, and it helps per­fect a lob shot too.”Pocket Bunker is avail­able at The Pro Shop or on­line at pock­et­bunker.com for R219, or R399 for a pack of three (free de­liv­ery in SA).
