Bunker practice without sand
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).
