Golf coaching – long bunker shot

Feb 12, 2021 | Jenni Ashford

The long bunker shot is deemed one of the hardest to play. Your preparation for this shot is key.

Mastering the long bunker shot can help ease frustration and help save you shots.

Choosing a less lofted wedge is a must along with aiming to take less sand and letting the ball release to hole.

You need to keep your body turning and stay positive through impact to allow the ball to come out and roll more on landing.

A shallow contact in the sand is the goal, don’t let the club dig steeply into the sand or the ball with only travel a short distance.

This must be practiced before you take it to the course and put it into play.
