Very good info about bunker play. Fits in nicely with the S&T setup.

I am hoping this year there will be more talk/video about S&T. Since it is difficult to learn a swing theory thru Golf Digest articles, I am looking for more clarification on setup and swing. Also, the type of club configuration (Club loft, bend, etc) would also be a nice addition.

Let us hope that S&T gains momentum and more constructive input from qualified instructors and players.

Aloha

I totally agree; it's hard to learn from a book,magazine,website,etc. They (the S&T advocates) are missing a HUGH opportunity to spread the word. People hear about it from golf TV analysts,but can't find anything concrete about it in the form of books,CD's,etc.

There are no recommended clubs,lofts,etc.,that I've heard about.

Denver will be teaching this year at Metedeconk National Golf Club, Jackson,NJ.,starting in April. Even though it is a private club,he will teach any and all people

From DJ:

Ball forward,weight forward.

Control the length of the bunker shot by the length of the follow-through.

To get the bounce on the sand wedge to work (so it won't dig,but will slide under the ball),let the clubhead pass your hands on the downswing.

From me

Open the clubface, then grip the club as follows:


Put both hands into an extremely weak position.For a right-hander,the left thumb will be at 11 o'clock,with no knuckles showing;the right hand would also be at 11 o'clock, with 2-3 knuckles showing. In other words,the right hand will be on top of the shaft. This will keep the face open and thus expose expose the bounce to prevent digging.

Aim slightly behind the ball +/- 2 inches.
