TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR GAME
Inspired by the Open Championship
TIP #3 - NIGHTMARE BUNKER LIE
The pot bunkers at Royal Portrush are true hazards. Sometimes, simply getting out is an achievement and as Jonathan Yarwood demonstrates, when you’re faced with those awkward, cornered bunker lies, creating a stance that allows you to swing in balance is the key.
TIP #5 - DIG VS. SKID IN COARSE SAND
The bunkers at links courses use much coarser sand than the powdery sand we often encounter in the states. As Jonathan Yarwood shows, a dig technique is much more effective to escape from coarse sand.
