How to get out of a Sand Bunker

Nobody wants to spend all day desperately trying to hit their ball out of a sand bunker. On a greenside bunker shot, you want to hit the sand just right, so that it moves the ball out of the bunker. Here is a drill you can practice:

Step one: Draw a line in the sand to help you focus on the sand, not the ball.

Step two: Line balls up on the target side of the line, three inches ahead.

Step three: Straddle the line.

Step four: Hover club above and behind the line, which is where you want to strike

Step five: Practice hitting the line, so that your club hits the sand first.

Step six: Practice the same stroke with the golf balls.
