Tip from the Pro (Kenny E.) Getting out of green-side bunkers.
In the past, Tour players would open their sand wedges way up and swing very
hard; current wisdom is to maintain the design loft of your wedge and hit slightly
behind the ball taking a much more relaxed swing with ‘regular’ swing speed. Try
practicing in a bunker by taking swings without a ball down - just feel the club
passing through the sand with the goal of flying a bit of the sand out of the bunker.
Then try it with a ball.
