40 Yard Bunker Shot Technique by Roberto Castro

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

This is a great companion to the Jimmy Walker high soft bunker shot video I did a few weeks ago. Here Castro takes his Pitching Wedge and hits what amounts to an open face punch shot from the sand that finishes about 6 feet from the cup. In contrast to Walker’s shot (wide open stance, out to in cut across swing), Castro plays this from an almost dead square stance, then makes an on plane backswing and flattens the shaft on the way down while keeping his left wrist cupped and the face open. He cuts off the finish at waist high, producing a shallow but driving strike.
