THE SITUATION



THE SILVER LINING

you're free to commit the most common bunker error of all time and quit on the shot











HOW TO BE A QUITTER

  • Dig your back foot deeper in the sand than your front. Use whichever of your wedges has the most bounce and open the blade just a bit at address.

  • Make a full backswing, then slam the club powerfully into the sand an inch or two behind and beneath your ball as if you're trying to bury the clubhead. Accelerate all the way into the sand.

  • Don't expect any followthrough, just a soft rebound effect as your club emerges lazily from the sand. Meanwhile your ball and a half-cup of sand are already crossing the bunker lip on their way to the green.
