      John,

      You are picking it up and you are trying to come through not rolling the wrists. In doing so you will feel the arms.

    Pure gold Paul. The recent playing tips have been very helpful. Please keep them coming. There are countless situations like this one that come up through a season of golf that driving range work cannot address. Many thanks.

    Paul,

    Do you recommend using the same technique (punch shot) if we elect to bail out with a 50 yarder instead of 140 yd carry? Great instruction.

  4. Great shot you played there ,Paul.Apart from taking your médicine and pitching the ball back safely to the fairway ,what about playing a 23° or 26° hybrid instead of your regular 7 or 8 iron ?
    Also ,when you are in a fairway bunker ,far from the green ,say 120/130 meters , with steep slopes bordering the fairway bunker, making it difficult to get out ,what club would you play ?
    This occurrence happens often on my home course in CANNES ,the sand there is packed tight , it’s ,more packed mud or earth than sand

      Raymond,

      If you miss those clubs the sole plate will bounce off the hardpan. I was de-lofting it on purpose to create the descending blow. Plus, this is an unbelievably tricky shot. You miss it left you are dead. So going for it is no a wise option. If you go for it you need to realize that you could make a really high number. Getting it back in play for a double digit handicap in this situation is the shot.

      Fairway bunker with steep slopes I would figure out how close to the green I need to get my shot so I have an easy shot in then choose a club that will hit it that far. Big numbers can also be made from this situation if you don’t get it out. Plus, not getting out carries forward to the next time you are in the same situation. Make wise choices and you will reduce your scores.
