Reply Definitely have the problem of being too steep on the backswing – same problem occurs w/ the full swing. Thanks for the tip – will work on the takeaway. Reply Excellent tip. Back this summer, I accidentally stumbled upon what you are teaching in this bunker tip. It was quite by accident as I was trying to figure out a way to control the height of the shot out of the bunker and I tried various backswing planes from flat to upright. Grace and Peace, JRM Reply Great tip never thought of it that way, will try it today if I get trapped in the sand Reply Hi Shawn. One more great tip. My problem is that when I do this a “slide” forward and take no sand, sending the ball far away. How do I avoid sliding forward? Thanks DAvidw Reply Great tip Shawn, it makes sense. Thank you Nancy Reply Nancy–thanks! Great to hear you like it. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
