Hitting Out of a Fairway Bunker

When hitting out of a fairway bunker, making solid contact is a primary goal. In order to do so, you'll need to adjust your set up, swing, or both. To adjust your set up:

  • Dig your lead foot in more than your trail
  • Narrow your stance slightly
  • Put more weight on your front foot
  • Level your shoulders and position your upper body more on top of the golf ball instead of behind it

To adjust your swing:

  • Swing more with your upper body
  • Take care not to drop down in transition
  • Make sure your release has the low point ahead of the golf ball
