A good setup makes bunker shots al­most au­to­matic

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

A lot of play­ers try to gouge the ball out with a hard swing that digs with the lead­ing edge, or they hang back and try to scoop it out. Nei­ther is a re­li­able tech­nique. In­stead, open the face, set your grip, and open your stance slightly while keep­ing the ball po­si­tion just for­ward of cen­tre. This com­bi­na­tion will let you make a reg­u­lar pitch swing on the line shown here and get the club slid­ing through the sand at a depth just un­der the ball.
