As you learned from the Short Game DVD, hitting shots out of the bunker is very easy once you learn the few basic fundamentals. But what happens when faced with an uphill lie? As you'll see in the video, the same fundamentals apply, you simply need to understand a couple more things that will make this shot much easier. The swing is the same, only the setup is slightly different.
Video Practice Points
- Uphill bunker shots are handled using the usual sand techniques: Drawing the box, striking the match, acceleration, etc.
- The only difference is in the setup - if you have a clean lie, your shoulder angle should match the slope
- Balance your weight as best you can and make your normal bunker shot
