Question

How to escape from a steep fairway bunker?

July 18, 2018

Bobby’s Answer

The Open Championship is being contested this week at Carnoustie, one of the most difficult tests of golf in the world.

I played in the Senior Open Championship at Carnoustie back in 2010 and know the importance of getting out of the steep-faced pot bunkers, a lesson I learned at Royal Troon during the 1982 Open Championship.

Watch as I teach how to escape from a steep fairway bunker. Make sure you don’t miss out on taking a Signature School with me this summer in Columbus or Steamboat Springs – learn more here.

  1. At what point during the downswing or impact or follow through should you start to come out of your posture (hips extending forward/chest going back) ?

    1. Glen,
      I am not a style-based instructor therefore the answer to this question depends on what you create at impact. I work backwards from there to determine if adjustments in spine angle are needed for you. Clearly, the game’s best come out of spine angle differently. The answer to better golf is always better impact!

  2. I WATCH YOUR VIDEOS INTENTLY. THEIR CONTENT IS MOST VALUABLE TO MY GAME. HOWEVER, NOW THE VIDEO WILL NOT PLAY UNLESS I DISABLE MY AD BLOCKER. WHY LOWER YOUR COMPANY TO THIS TACTIC. IF THAT’S THE WAY THAT YOU DO BUSINESS, I’LL FIND SOMEWHERE ELSE TO VIEW MY GOLF INSTRUCTION TIPS.

    1. Ken,
      Thanks for making us aware of this. Not what we want for sure. We’ll get to the bottom of it. Let me know if it continues!
      Bobby

I need to hit the ball farther! I currently have an index of 3.8, but, everyone hits the ball farther than me. My left arm bends, plenty in the back swing. My swing bottom with my driver is a whole foot behind the ball. Help, please!  (Our apologies about the wind noise but we felt the message was so important, we wanted to share it with you anyway!)
