Anna Rawson: Okay, at some point in the round, most likely you’re going to go into a bunker. So here are a few things that I think about to help you get up and down, if not hole it. So that’s actually the key point, is you want to think about holing the shot. Just like putting, you putt to make it. Bunker shot, you want to make it. Most likely you end up a lot closer than if you’re just trying to get it out.
So that’s the first thing I really think about. “Okay, where do I want to land it? How far is it going to roll out and roll in?” So that’s the first thing. When I get into my stance, get comfortable, open up my club face, I have a weak grip so I can get some spin and I have a little lean, a little bit forward, and then it’s just accelerate through it. And that’s how you hit a great bunker shot.
