Hi Sean, I’ve been having a lot of trouble with plugged bunker shots or “fried eggs” as I’ve heard them called. Can you give me a few pointers to get out of the bunker a little easier?
For almost all bunker shots, I’m a huge advocate of using the bounce of the club to assist you.
However, in the case of a plugged ball, I don’t want the bounce to be the first part of the club to enter the sand. With this particular shot, we need to dig the ball out of the lie - so it’s paramount that the leading edge of the club enters the sand first.
