Setup square to your target line with a forward ball position. Dig your feet into the sand for extra stability.
Close the Toe
Close the toe of the club so that it faces inward toward the sand.
Scoop It Out
Take a normal swing. The club will come into the ground with a closed face. Then, it will dig into the sand and open up. Your swing motion will look like an ice cream scoop and pop the ball out of the sand and into the air.

I was wondering if you’re closing the club face first then gripping it or do you rotate your hands to the left (RT. hand golfer) to close the club face so when the toe makes contact with the sand it will rotate your hands back to normal.
Gary–close the face so the toe makes contact first and the hands rotate back to normal.
