here at the medal­ist golf

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play - with max adler

club in Hobe Sound, Florida, I’m in a steep-face pot bunker. Most golfers as­so­ci­ate these haz­ards with Scot­land and Ireland, but we have syn­thetic ones at this club. In­stead of bricked lay­ers of sod that can melt in a muggy cli­mate, the face of this bunker is built with strips of ar­ti­fi­cial turf. Only up close can you tell they’re not real. (As a mem­ber here, I’ve had this view more times than I care to ad­mit.) Tough as they are, these bunkers have forced me to per­fect a few tech­niques for ex­treme sit­u­a­tions. Learn them, and you’ll gain the con­fi­dence to han­dle any bunker at your course. –
