With that turn/uncoil in the bunker shot how do you control distance? Backswing? Tempo? Loft?
I will do a tip on this in the future but you open/closed the face, dig in shallower/deeper or turn the body faster or slower or a combination of these things.
Great tip on how to get out of a green side bunker. Can you help with fairway bunker shots?
I already did a couple of tips on shots from the fairway bunker. You can watch them here:

Hi Paul, same as Craig mentioned, how do you control distance? So many times I take out the ball from the bunker and it goes beyond the green or even worse, to another bunker. Thanks.
HiPaul, As usual, another great tip. Two areas I’d like to see you address:
1. What adjustments are needed if the ball is way below or above your feet when you take your stance in the bunker?
2. Recommendations when in moist sand and heavy, thick sand greenside bunkers?

I am going to do tips on both of these.
1. Ball below or above feet you are flexing the knees or unflexing the knees. You are gripping down on the club or gripping up on the club. All of these things are to get you as level as you can with the ball. As you can see there is too much info for me to describe. I can show this better in tips.
2. I will do a tip on this too in the future but mainly you will be hitting the ball from think heavy sand with a square face. This means you will not be aiming left of the target. Stay square. Dig in. Do the normal bunker technique.
Thanks Paul. When I do that I find myself hitting the ball, no sand, sending it far away. I realize that I must be sliding forward rather than turning my hips. How to correct that?
Just as I said in the tip you need to turn. If you are sliding you are not turning. So put the line in the sand and match your belt buckle with it. The only way you can do this is if you are turning. So dig in. Relax the arms. Do the hinge turn bunker technique while watching the ball.
Interesting one, I dream of light fluffy sand, our bunkers wet and heavy sand your lucky to get down an inch. Any tips for these?
Square up the face. Aim square. Feel like you are picking it up more vertical going back if you want. Turn through it as I suggest. This should pop it out. I will be doing a tip on this in the future.
