2 SPLAY-FOOTED SWINGS

Today's Golfer (UK) - - PLAY BETTER -

LOCKED OUT

I want you to feel you are tak­ing your lower body out of play in bunkers. To help you get this feel­ing, take a wider stance than nor­mal. As you dig your feet in open up your feet and knees, so both feet point out.

SQUAT FEEL

Just be­fore you start the swing, get the feel­ing you are ‘sit­ting down’ more in the bunker. This, along with the splayed feet and knees, en­gages and braces the mus­cles in your legs, help­ing that sense of a rock-solid lower half.

HIT THE SPOT

From here, just make your nor­mal swing. Keep your eyes locked on the club’s en­try point into the sand, and feel the mo­tion is driven by the hands, arms and up­per body. With your lower half now sta­bil­is­ing bet­ter, you’ll hit that spot more of­ten.
