This is not how I teach the buried lie in the bunker, but who am I to argue with Golf Digest Top 100 Teacher Hank Haney?  The key that both of us agree on is that you want the club’s leading edge to hit the sand first and hit DEEP!  Those are the 2 keys to making this shot a whole lot easier!

I like to hood the clubface slightly.  This moves the club’s bounce out of the way and guarantees that the leading edge will strike the ground first. The ball will come out slightly lower because of the closed clubface, and there will be no backspin on this ball at all!  So swing a little softer to allow the ball to roll out a little more than normal.
