TOM WATSON probably couldn’t be more right in saying many amateur golfers are afraid of bunkers.
In the video clip below the eight-time Major winner explains, in his usual straightforward, no-nonsense manner, the fundamentals of the sand wedge and playing the basic bunker shot.
Watson’s notes on playing the basic bunker shot are:
- Open body to target (aim left)
- Aim club face to right of target
- Swing along body line
- Enter the sand (a couple of inches behind the ball) with the flange of the club
