Con­trol your strike point in sand for more con­sis­tency.

One of the big­gest is­sues for am­a­teurs in sand is en­sur­ing the club­head meets the sand at the right point. In the ideal strike, the club en­ters the sand an inch or so be­hind the ball, cre­at­ing a con­trolled cush­ion of sand be­tween ball and club­face. Any­thing much heav­ier than this muf­fles im­pact; any­thing much cleaner risks fir­ing the ball over the green. The key to mas­ter­ing the per­fect sand im­pact lies in steady­ing the low point of the swing’s arc and cre­at­ing the rel­a­tively level at­tack an­gle that pro­motes a con­trolled, shal­low sand divot. Use these four steps to find the per­fect strike.
