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?

Bobby,

Thanks for all the great tips! I really enjoy them, but I need your help. I’m an 8 handicap player and score okay, however, I know I save the shot with my hands and want the feeling of being able to let it go through impact. Any tips or drills to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Bobby,

I strike the ball on the sweet spot, most when I keep my left arm straight on the back swing. This shows me my true flexibility- or should I say lack of! And I can only turn about to the 9 o’clock, or parallel to the ground position. I’m 66 and play four or five times a week. Where does the straight-left arm fit in your impact teaching, or does it?

My best swing produces a high draw, but every round I have swings where my driver hits the ground first, causing the club to snap shut and I hit a DISASTROUS low duck-hook! What causes this drop-kick and how do I correct it?
