How To Pitch Over The Bunker Consistently - Part 2
Are you struggling to hit that ball over the lovely bunker behind me? Are you saying, Yes, Tiff, absolutely struggling, I’m really not sure how to do it?
Don’t go anywhere, I’m going to show you a very simple way to get it over that bunker.
Today I am going to show you, like I promised, what happens from the back view so that you can actually see the ball come through, up over the bunker, see what a kind of height starts to come off the clubface and all that sort of stuff as well just to have a look at what my body is doing so that you can go out there and practice that as well. That’s what we are going to focus on right now.
Do you remember me talking to you about that long back long through action. You know, we talked about taking the wrists out of play.
Well, we are still going to apply that today, you have seen a few previous videos on how to take the wrists out, so that’s what we are going to do here. We are going to see it from the back view so that you can actually see where I am taking the club back to, what I am doing coming through, you can see what my body is doing as well and you can see the ball go up over that lovely bunker, isn’t it cool, a nice big high lip, really wide and we have to make sure we get this ball over it.
Very simple, we get set, we go long back and long through and that is pretty much it. We have to make sure we hit the grass just before the ball. Here we go, testing it out, Long back, long through and hold.
What did you see the ball do?
All it did was to pop up and off it went.
All you saw me do is to go long back and long through and opened my body up, just making sure to work on our bellybutton or out chest, torso, tummy, whatever you want to be thinking about, belt buckle, we want to make sure that everything is facing to where the ball went.
I’ll do one more shot for you, long back, long through, hold. We want to make sure we are focusing on getting that action right, because that is going to help get the ball over the bunker.
That was a lot of fun, wasn’t it? Getting the ball over the bunker and seeing how to do it.
