One Constant : Hit The Sand
There certainly is one constant between the Basic Golf Sand Play Lessons and The Advanced Golf Sand Play Lessons...you must hit the sand first. Do not hit the ball. All the techniques and strategies and the following lessons will be for nothing if make contact with the ball during the shot. Contacting the ball sends the ball flying with too much power. It will go screaming over the green leaving you another sand shot, chip or pitch.
When you contact the sand and slide your club under the ball, the sand will push your ball out of the trap. By playing the shot this way your ball will exit the trap higher and softer. This means it will land gently on the green without too much roll. You will have more control on the height and shot, as well as controlling the distance.
Always remember...DO NOT HIT THE BALL...HIT THE SAND!!
Be Open...To Change
The most important difference between Basic Golf Sand Play and Advanced Golf Sand Play is the opening of your club and stance. This is critical in your short game and sand development. Please take your time with the grip, stance and alignment lessons. It is very important that you clearly understand those lessons. It has been my experience that this where most people struggle with golf sand play. It is not the actual swing that is the problem, but the fundamentals. If you lock those down it will be far easier to develop your game.
So let's grab your wedges and work on developing your sand skills as well as your creativity so that every sand shot you face will be challenging but not scary. Let's work on your game and then get out and play.
