2 SPLAY-FOOTED SWINGS
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.
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.
