Greenside Bunker Drill

This is a great drill to help you with your greenside bunker shots.  First, draw two lines in the bunker perpendicular to the target about 4 inches apart.  I use the bunker rake as shown to make my lines.  Lay the rake in the bunker and then step lightly on it to form the lines.

After you draw the lines, place 4-5 golf balls in a row about 4 inches apart between the lines.  Leave room to make several practice swings before hitting the balls.

Set up with the lines toward the front part of your stance as shown. 

  The divot your created in the sand should be a little bigger than a dollar bill and it should extend through both lines.

I will demonstrate the drill in the following video.  Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions.
