Downhill Sand / Bunker Shots
Hitting sand shots is a scary thing for most golfers. As you'll see in the video, you need to make a few key changes to your setup on the downhill sand shot. Make sure you stay down through the shot and maintain your balance on the slope. It is important to trust that the loft on the club will send the ball up without you having to hit up on the ball.
- Downhill bunker shots are handled the same as any sand shot, with a couple added features
- Like any bunker shot, the ball should be a bit up in your stance
- Match your shoulder angle to the slope of the ground - this goes for either up or downhill
- Get a nice, wide stance with firm footing, match the slope and swing through
