MAKE RIGHTHANDED SWINGS
To improve your feel for bunker shots, practise swinging with your right hand only. Start without a ball and make some full swings back and through. Remember the coffee cup drill for the backswing and the bowing of the right wrist during the downswing. Try to slap the sand with the back of the clubhead. Gravity and the weight of the club will help it release properly and give you a good feeling for how big a swing you can make without the ball going very far. ▶ The one-handed motion makes it nearly impossible to cut off the swing too soon – a typical amateur mistake. Once you get comfortable, hit some bunker shots one-handed. Copy this feeling with both hands on the club, and you’ll be amazed how good you can be from the sand.
