Getting the ball out of the sand
Being in the bunker should not be a problem. The main reason is, I joke, because it’s the only shot in golf where you don’t hit the ball. When teaching people to play bunker shots I use a progression of shots until you can finally get the ball out of the sand as follows:
Start by hitting sand out of the bunker. Just swing the club so that the sand flies out and onto the grass. Do that about 10 times, hitting the sand every time.
Next, draw a small circle about 4 inches in diameter in the sand and make a swing that removes the entire circle so that no trace is left. Do that at least five times and make sure none of the circle is visible after the shot. Try to make five in a row.
