"The essence of a greenside bunker shot"

A greenside bunker shot is so much easier than most think. It is nothing more than a "fat pitch." In a greenside bunker we want to hit the sand first. To do that, make two main adjustments to your stance: first, move the ball, two to three inches forward of center and second, dig your feet into the sand. This set up will automatically make your club enter the sand behind the ball. Plan on your sand shot going approximately a third of the distance the same swing would go as a pitch. Remember to change your set up, never your golf swing.
