All great stuff and enjoy them. In this weeks hump tip in the sand bunker you talk about the alignment, using a stick, and then you mention that this helps to align the feet as well. I was always under the impression that in the sand you stand is open and not square, and that by opening the club face you aim down to the intended landing point. What am I missing Thanks for enlightenment Kurt HC 7 Reply Kurt–thanks for the note. Understand your feet need to be on parallel to your intended ball line. Not open! The biggest mistake golfers make–they take a 56 or 60 degree club and open the face to 60-64 degrees. That’s crazy to do that. You already have the correct amount of loft on the club to hit the shot. Opening the face and opening the stance is old school / conventional teaching. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
