Bunker Drill: Throw The Sand

Most of us will never be able to bomb it like Bryson, but anyone of us can dial in our short game and lower our scores with good fundamentals and lots of practice. This is especially true in the bunker.

A mistake most amateurs make in the sand trap is decelerating through impact. This is a BIG no-no in the bunker. You literally want to throw the sand out of the bunker in the direction you want the ball to go. The best way to instill this feeling is to start without a ball and practice accelerating through the hitting zone and throwing the sand. Watch as Mr. Short Game demonstrates.
