Plugged Bunker Shot

This is a fairly easy shot to get out of the bunker, but difficult to get close to the hole.

Understand: Because the ball is in a hole, it will come out fairly low and with very little spin. Little spin will cause the ball to roll when it lands on the green.

Keys: Close the face of your sand or lob wedge. Next, close it even more. Did I mention, close the face? Finally, strike the sand fairly close to the ball. Make sure you get the sand out of the bunker.
