Question

On the greenside bunker shot- is it a pitch shot, or is it a full shot? How do you know which shot to use?

Bobby’s Answer

That’s a great question, Brian! The key here is backspin, which requires speed, which requires more of a full swing… which begs the question… how to control the distance? Ahhh, so many people have trouble with the greenside bunker- but it doesn’t have to be that way. Watch today’s video for my explanation.

  1. Y can’t some of these game improvement vids be done in closed captioning for your viewers that are deaf or hard of hearing ???

  2. When the sand is hard packed (It’s more dirt than sand !) at my home course here at CANNES MANDELIEU (FRANCE) ,I use a club with much less bounce !the 51° gap wedge is fine .I compensate for the lesser loft by opening much more the face and tke my stance at 45°of the target .Of course I play the shot like BOBBY shows ,a full swing with a lot of speed

  3. I have diminished vision in my left eye which causes me difficulty at times in alignment . Do you have a recommendation that I can incorporate into my Aim Point setup?
