Hank Haney is one of the Top 100 Teachers in America and is a former coach of Tiger Woods.  Hank gives us the basics on a standard bunker shot that almost all golfers need help with.  The big key, according to Hank, is the ball position and the stance, which should be open to the intended line.

Unless you’re playing the PGA Tour, you’re likely playing courses with bunkers that have varying textures of sand, from hard pan to soft and fluffy.

Learning how to manage these tricky situations is critical to lowering your scores.

Last year, Mel Sole shared three pro tips for playing out of hardened bunkers. As mentioned, the approach for playing hardened bunkers versus soft bunkers is quite different. On location in Mexico, Mel explains the key to successful shots out of soft, fluffy sand in this month’s video golf tip. Watch now!

Last year when I filmed my tip about playing out of bunkers with hard sand, the practice bunker was perfect for that tip.  The type of bunker a lot of golfers who lay at municipal courses face.  This year the club had a surprise for me.  They had redone the bunker, and the bunker now had soft, white sand, just like the golf course.  I took advantage of that!  So flow along as I explain the technique and the use of the correct equipment as well!
