HINGE THE CLUB UP
Once you get into a stance where you’re aligned left but the clubface is pointing to the right, dig your feet into the sand a little for stability. There’s no need to take the club back any further than you see here, with the left arm about parallel to the ground.
Notice that my left wrist has hinged the club upward and is a little cupped – that’s keeping the face open for extra loft. You should take the club back with medium grip pressure because you’ll need some strength to skim the club through the sand without losing control of it.
