Tip From Chris Brown
(Sugarbrook Manager)

Sand Trap Play

When in a sand trap, feel free to bury your feet in the sand for balance, open your stance, and make sure the ball is at the head of your stance. Strike at the sand under/behind the ball (1-2 inches behind the ball), rather than trying to hit the ball itself. Focus on swinging “to and thru” your stroke and not decelerating on the down-swing. This will send sand spraying, but will ensure that you get some loft and spin on the ball. The ability to loft the ball with backspin out of the trap is crucial in clearing the edge of the bunker and letting your ball “check-up” so you can aggressively go at the pin/hole even from the sand.

Golf Swing

How’s your golf swing working? If you’re a slicer, your club head is approaching the ball on a too steep/narrow angle. To widen this angle out, turn your hips a bit more on the backswing and have your arms swing a little more around your body and less up and down.
