#28 Web TV: Bunker Drill to Stop the Wrist Flick

This week’s tip is a follow-on from last week,  How to Do a Simple Bunker Drill.

This drill is designed to get rid of the famous wrist flick I see with golfers when they play bunker shots. The problem I see is that golfers tend to “try to help the ball out” by “lifting up the club”.

What ends up happening is that they scoop the ball, it either goes nowhere or just only a few feet forward, with the ball yet to roll back down to where you are and you start the whole process again.

All of a sudden you play two maybe three shots before you get it out of the bunker, then you may have a few putts to get the ball in the hole…. then whoa you have ended up with 8, 9 or even 10 shots on the hole.

Can be what I call “soul destroying”. Then you feel so nervous about playing another bunker shot that the likeliness of the ball going into the bunker because you have it in your mind about the fear of the bunker…before you know it you are in the bunker….. then you go through the whole process again.

In the video above, we can tackle the bunker in a positive way and take out that fear, as I can show you how to take action and work on a constructive shot that will give you lots of confidence and bunkers you will no longer fear. You just need to know what to do.

How to get over this fear?

Watch the video above and go out and practice it, so you can start getting rid of the wrist flick in the bunker.

Then I want you to leave a comment below and let me know how you went.

This tip above will compliment the next week’s of bunker tip that will be shared.

      Hi Adrian

      Just keep working at the bunker shots… you will get there. AS you know you had a few new habits to develop.

      Glad to hear your grip is feeling better.

      Keep working on your putting.

    Great Demo as always Tiff. This is from an earlier series, right? Have to practice bunker play when I can. Will review this video when that happens. But you always make it look so smooth and easy and that’s what you want us to do too. Keep it simple.

      Hi Dave

      Yes this is an early one for sure.

      It’s all about keeping it so so simple. Take the time to practice bunkers and practice the drill. You will get alot out of it.
