Fairway Bunker Club Selection Tips
Of all the golf shots in the world, the one I personally hate the most is the fairway bunker shot. I'm not entirely sure why I hate this shot so much, but I do. Well, that's not golf clubs for sale...I know exactly why I hate this shot so much. It's because they make me nervous. They always have, and I suspect they always will. Even so, there are a few tips that have helped me get out of these nightmares and perhaps they can help you as well. If you are anything at all like me, the first problem you're faced with when you land in a fairway bunker is which club to select. Your first priority in this selection is to make sure you have enough loft to clear the lip of golf clubs for sale Take it from me, it doesn't a bit of good to gaze down the fairway visualizing where you want the ball to land if it doesn't clear the lip of the bunker first! So, is there an easy way to determine the right trajectory that the ball will need to take in order to clear the lip of the bunker? Actually, there is. Pick the club that you think is going to work. Take this club outside the bunker (remember, you are not allowed to ground your club inside the bunker) and face the target on golf clubs for sale that is behind where your ball is. Put the club on the ground and "gently" stand on the club face with the shaft pointing in the direction of the target. As you press your foot down on the clubface, the shaft will begin to come up at an angle. Look at this angle and compare it to the lip of the bunker. If the angle is above the lip, you have the right club and should be able to clear the bunker lip. However, if the shaft angle is below the lip of the bunker, chances are you won't make it out of the bunker and you should take one or more golf clubs for sale to increase the trajectory path. Keep in mind (and I know I don't need to say this) it's better to come up short of the green than it is to bury your ball in the sandy lip of the bunker.
