Stay loose on green­side sand shots

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

Don’t shorten up and brace for im­pact in the bunker. You want your swing to feel long and un­hur­ried. Your left wrist should cup at the top as if it’s bend­ing from the weight of the club­head. Make prac­tice swings with your left hand only and, when you reach the top, check that wrist and make sure it’s more cupped (above). This will help open the club­face. From here, keep the hands re­laxed when you swing down, and let the club glide through the sand.
