Greenside bunker shots don’t have to spell doom. Golf Digest Best Young Teacher David Armitage has a tip that will help you get out safely in one shot.
Grab the nearest bunker rake and set it about a foot behind the ball. Get into a wide stance with your weight favoring your front leg and the ball just forward of center. Your goal is to make a swing missing the rake both on the takeaway and again on the downswing. This helps make sure your attack angle is not too shallow and you don’t bottom out the club too soon. You should strike the sand in the middle of your stance, just behind the ball, creating a high-spinning, soft-landing shot.
