    My bunker play has definitely improved with practice of your method. I still struggle with strange lies. In a future tip on bunker play, would you speak to the adjustments you make in the various locations…..for example edge of bunker, standing outside, one foot in, buried lie, downhill lie etc

    Hope all is well


  2. Paul ,
    Could you please show (unless you did it in one of your other VIDEOS and I missed it ) how you play a sand shot in a sloping downward lie:do you put THE ball back in your stance or do you keep THE ball forwards,off your left foot ?

    • Raymond,

      I will get to this eventually.

      Yes, ball back in your stance. Ball will go right so aim left.

  3. More from above..Playing a sand shot in a sloping downward lie:do you put all of your weight on your left foot? Also would it be advisable to play a 60* or even a 64* wedge rather than my 56* due to the diminished loft?

      Yes, most of your weight would be on the forward leg depending on how severe the slope. What club to hit depends on the slope and pin position. If it is cut close I would take the higher lofted club.
