Beat the Bunker

Es­cape ev­ery buried lie.

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - Contents - BY DAVID LEADBETTER

One of the most dif­fi­cult lies you can get in a green­side bunker is when the ball em­beds a lit­tle into the up­s­lope, like the PGA Tour’s Pa­trick Reed faced here. This is es­pe­cially true if the sand is soft. It’s dif­fi­cult from an awk­ward stance to swing with enough ac­cel­er­a­tion to get the ball out of a slightly buried lie. But I’ll show you in four steps how to gen­er­ate the power nec­es­sary to ex­e­cute this tricky shot.
