Green­side bunkers aren’t al­ways the worst miss

Golf World (UK) - - TOUR TIPS -

The bunker looks like the bad miss, but it de­pends where the pin po­si­tion is. If it’s cut close to the bunker then you def­i­nitely don’t want to go in it so you should aim a bit right but if the pin is away from the bunker then it could be an eas­ier up-and-down from the sand rather than short-sid­ing your­self in the rough – as long as the bunker isn’t too se­vere and you’re a rea­son­able sand player. Al­ways try to leave your­self a straight up­hill putt, whether that’s from your ap­proach or a re­cov­ery shot around the green.
