Published on

The quickest way to lower your scores is by improving your short game. Navigating your way out of bunkers can be a challenge, but PGA Coaches David Bach & Abby Parsons of Whistling Straits have a couple of quick keys to help you take a better approach.
Different scenarios call for different shots. Be sure to assess your lie, the pin placement and where you are in your round appropriately before you make your decision.

If you're struggling to get out of the sand altogether, Parsons has a great drill to work on your target line & all you need is a tee.
