Todd Sones: Bunker Shots

Things must be thawing out in the Chicago area! Todd Sones is a Golf Magazine Top 100 Instructor who works out of White Deer Run about 30 minutes outside the Windy City, and lately, he’s been sending out video tips related to his Impact Golf School.

This week’s tip involves bunker play, something we recently covered in Mechanics of the Short Game at the Golf Academy, so I thought it was timely. Here are Todd’s three keys to better bunker play:

* Open it before you grip it – if you grip the club before you open the face, you can’t stand to the handle
* Set the shaft perpendicular to your start line
* Stand to the handle – the club shaft should point to the middle of your body; your spine should be straight
