Tips to Help Lower Your Handicap
Good Lie in Bunker
Open your stance a little by keeping your left foot back and also open the clubface slightly. Swing the club parallel with your feet with an out to in action causing a steeper swing which makes the ball rise quicker and also produces backspin which means the ball will stop quickly on the green. Aim slightly left of target as the ball should tend to fly to the right.
Plugged Lie in Bunker
Instead of opening the face of the callaway diablo edge irons you should keep the club face square. This shot should be approached with reasonable speed following through keeping the clubface square and therefore digging into the sand behind the ball with the sand and the ball coming out of the bunker together. The very action required to come out of the bunker from a plugged lie means that there will not be any backspin and the ball will roll on some distance.
Downhill Lie In Bunker
If the ball finishes on a downhill lie in the bunker open the clubface of diablo edge irons and adopt an open stance with the weight on your left foot. The shot should be played near to your left foot trying to follow the slope of the bunker. At impact the weight should be focused on your left foot allowing the ball to be sliced out of the bunker providing you complete a full follow through.
Uphill Lie In Bunker
For this type of shot you do not need to adopt an open stance or open up the face of the callaway diablo octane driver. Instead follow the uphill slope of the bunker and position your body parallel to the slope and swing solidly also parallel to the slope.
The golf ball should come out of the bunker with a higher trajectory and therefore not run on too far
You could otherwise have an excellent technique but it will probably go wrong if you come up to look for your golf ball too quickly.
This may sound like stating the obvious but it is a very common error made by many mid to high handicap golfers and is often brought about because the player is anxious and nervous about playing bunker shots with callaway diablo octane. Have you ever said "How unlucky was that!? The ball hit the top 2 inches of the bunker face and almost came out!" Now the golf ball is lying way deep down in the imprint of your shoe! Game over!
