Bunker Line Drill for Low Point Control

From Layne Savoie On January 13, 2021
There's nothing more frustrating than skulling or flubbing an easy chip shot. Fat shots and thin shots can pop up at the worst times possible, but as Titleist staff member Layne Savoie shares in this... video, making clean contact consistently on finesse shots is a skill that you can easily develop.

All you need is a bunker (or similar – soft sandy soil, wood chips, pine needles, etc.) a straight line and a few practice balls. As Layne shows, with this bunker line drill, the sand provides immediate feedback on where your wedge first makes contact with the ground. This is the key to clipping the ball first on chips and pitches, and then the turf. Give Layne's creative drill a try and let us know if it helps your low point control and the consistency of your finesse shots around the green.
