‘You need two swings for sand play’

Golf World (UK) - - THE SPIN -

Fair­way bunker shots and green­side splashes cause am­a­teurs all kinds of prob­lems but they don’t bother Tour pros in the slight­est. This is be­cause we are used to hit­ting the ball slightly be­fore the turf and so, on full-length shots from the sand, we can sim­ply use our reg­u­lar swing. And on those short-range splashes we know how to ad­just our body an­gles and use the sole of the sand wedge to judge height and dis­tance. Turn the page to see how I play both types of shot.
