Learn how to hit a sand shot and improve your short game in this free video series on golf tips and techniques.
the sand shot. Some people fear the sand -- they're not sure what to do in the sand, how to get out of the sand. This is how to get out of the sand. This is the A-1 method that I believe will get you out of the sand. Number one, start out not with a square clubface but a clubface that aims to the right. So that at address, the clubface is almost facing the sky. As a result, you should aim to the left. Next, you should hit about this far behind the ball with a fairly full swing. But instead of putting the club right behind the ball, I like to put the club behind the exact spot that I want to hit. So I don't address the ball, I address the spot that I want to hit, and I try to hit it with a fairly full swing. This clubface is facing the sky. I'm aiming left. I'm going to take a fairly full swing and try to hit my spot. I hit it pretty good and it was a pretty nice shot. I'm addressing my spot. I feel like I can hit that spot. Pretty good, and there's a pretty good shot. I'm aiming left, I'm opening the clubface, I'm going to try to hit my spot. Pretty good -- and a pretty good shot. Start with an open clubface. Aim left. Look at the spot that you want to hit. Don't care where you're going to hit the ball. Address that spot and try to hit the spot to improve your sand play.
