Do bunker shots strike fear in your game? This is probably one of the shots least practiced and perfected by most players. Folks generally prefer to crush drivers, listen to balls sizzle as they rocket of an iron, and/or putt. Plus, not as many courses offer practice sand traps. Many years ago, I did focus on and practice bunker play, but not so much in recent years. While I do pretty well out of most bunker situations, I must admit that this shot raises my BP more than most. They are responsible for a healthy percentage of my errant shots. No doubt this is largely due to the fact that I don't practice these shots very much and because sand condition can vary a lot. One of the courses in Yuma has a monthly rate for unlimited access to the practice area; which includes some nice, 60+ yard chipping area and bunker practice green. I will be focusing more on sand trap play this winter. How much time do you spend on improving bunker play and do you use any particular routine?
