Golf Tip to Get Your Ball Out of the Bunker
by Teaching Professional, Kathleen Strandberg

Most golfers get a little frustrated when they walk up to the bunker and find that their ball is plugged. When this does happen, there is one thing we care about: get the ball out. To make sure you get the ball out of the bunker with this type of lie, close the club face rather than open it. This set up change will be all you need, along with your normal bunker swing. It may not end up where you would like it to, but your chances of getting the ball out of that bad lie are much better with the club face closed. You may have to swing a little harder, depending on how severely it is plugged.
