How To Get More Loft Out Of A Greenside Bunker?

Here are three tips that will help you get out of a greenside bunker in one shot.

  1. Have the ball further up in your stance.
  2. Utilize the loft of the club.
  3. Commit to your swing.
  4. Practice and practice some more.

Why do I hit bunker shots thin?

Catching a bunker shot thin is typically the result of hanging too far back on your right foot while trying to “scoop” the ball into the air. (This can also lead to fat contact, by the way.) Then, keeping your swing at three-quarters, leave all that weight over your front foot throughout.

What club do pros use in bunkers?

Golf pros prefer the lob wedge to lift the ball out and flop it on the green, reducing roll and keeping the ball close to the hole. On the other hand, if you are in a fairway bunker or have some distance to get the green, then you should opt for a slightly lower lofted wedge.

What loft is a bunker shot?

The more lofted the club the shorter the ball will travel. Your lob wedge (58-60 degrees) for your shortest shots, your sand wedge (56-54 degrees) for your medium shots and your gap wedge (50-52 degrees) for your longer green side sand shots. The pace of your swing can also control distance.

What club do you use for a long distance shot?

Pitching wedge: This is the wedge with the lowest loft angle, allowing for more distance. It is a good choice for shots approaching the green. You can use the pitching wedge for shots from 50 to 120 yards. Gap wedge: This wedge has a little more loft than a pitching wedge and is used in many of the same situations.
