Bunkers are intimidating, until you learn how easy this shot can be:
• The sand is unstable, so build a solid foundation. Take a wide stance, and really dig in your feet.
• You're not actually hitting the ball on bunker shots--you're hitting the sand just behind the ball--so you need to make a big swing back and through.
To hit high, soft bunker shots, the clubface has to slide under the ball. To make this happen and avoid digging too deep, sling the clubhead past your hands through impact.
