Bunker Play Side Hill Lie

Carl T

Need help. One weakness I have had in my game is side hill bunker play. After lots of practice I have no problems with greenside bunkers of getting out and sometimes even holing out. One big problem though is when I have a side hill lie and the ball is above my feet. I have searched U Tube and the internet for video and have come up with nothing. Yesterday I had this type of lie three times and sculled every shot hard over the green with one even going into a bunker across the green which was very easy to get out as the ball ended up on a uphill lie which is the easiest lie to have in a bunker.

    I hate to answer my own question but apparently no one knew the answer to help me out. I found out the best way was to keep the club face square and swing with the slope. I was so used to open up my club face that it was an automatic reaction when I got into the side hill predicament. The 3 rules of bunker play, #1 get out, #2 get on the green and #3 get close to the pin. Rule number 1 is key on this unfortunate lie.
