Gettting out of a greenside bunker can be easy when you know these three rules.
#1-Use a Sand Wedge with a large sole to slide through the sand.
#2-Strike the sand behind the ball as you accelerate to a full finish. Most players hit the sand behind the ball and "quit" on the shot, leaving the ball in the bunker.
#3- Make sure you use a light grip pressure. Holding the club too tightly will "freeze" your wrists making it difficult to slide the club under the ball in the sand properly.
In additon to a light grip be sure to keep the club moving toward the target after impact.
