Question

I’m heading to Scotland to play some of the great courses. Last time I was there, I was having a terrible time getting out of those pot bunkers. Can you help me understand how to make the ball go up quickly to get over those steep lips?

Bobby’s Answer

Bobby explains and demonstrates the key is to use a low bounce lofted iron, like an 8 iron, and open the blade to play a blast shot. This will actually give you a more vertical launch than trying to pick a sandwedge.

  1. I am told by my weekly golfing buddies that my short game and putting are beyond belief but can not drive a ball worth a darn! Drives are between 220 to 240. Any suggestions on getting another 10 or 15 yards.

    1. James,
      There’s a lot to that question, but most of my students pick up more than 10 to 15 yards in distance. I would need to know a lot more information about you before I could answer your question justly.
      To better impact,
      Bobby

    I have issues with shifting my weight during my swing leading to hitting behind the golf ball. Also my divots tend to occur behind the ball and not in front of the balll where it should occur Any practice drills that you recommend would be graciously appreciated.
