THE SHORT SPLASH

Use a ‘but­ter­fly’ grip to max­imise the loft

Golf World (UK) - - TOUR TIPS -

There’s no short­age of ad­vice on how to hit it close from the sand, but the real se­cret to play­ing great bunker shots is keep­ing the loft on the club­face from ad­dress through im­pact. Get that one thing right and your bunker play will im­prove in­stantly. To help me achieve this, I use what I call a but­ter­fly grip to play the shot. Ba­si­cally, I turn both hands in­wards so that you can see more knuck­les on both hands. Try it for your­self. You’ll find that you can swing con­fi­dently and ag­gres­sively through the ball with­out any fear of the club­head dig­ging deeply into the sand.
