Horizontal Releases - Bunker
This version of the "horizontal release" drill is perfect for golfers who struggle out of the sand. More specifically, it is great for players who have a hard time feeling the differences between a "stock" release and that which is necessary for great bunker play.
To effectively use the bounce in the sand, we want to make sure the clubface remains open throughout the entirety of the motion. This is in stark contrast to our stock, full-swing mechanics; moves such as the "motorcycle"or the feeling of gradual supination would fall into this category.
Overall, if you can incorporate this drill into your next short game session, you should see improved low-point control and an ability to hit higher & softer bunker shots, especially when "short sided".
