Golf: Varying Distances from Greenside Bunkers
by Tina Mickelson

Controlling your distance from greenside bunkers can initially seem difficult but if you follow some basic guidelines you’ll find that a simplified approach can be very effective.  There is no need to alter your swing or change your club selection.  You can control your distance through your set-up.

Basically, the shorter the distance of the shot, the more open your stance and club face should be at address.  The longer the shot, the more square you want your stance and clubface.  This approach allows you to use the club you are most comfortable with, as well as your natural swing.  Just be sure to swing the club along the line of your stance.  Invest some time in practicing the different affects a more open stance and club face can have on distance as opposed to a square stance and set-up.  You’ll be surprised at how quickly you become comfortable with a wide array distances.
