Bunker tip: aim for top of flagstick

It happens to everyone. An easy pitch over a sand bunker and onto the green. No sweat! Except, of course, most amateurs’ knees start to shake when they see that giant sandbox in front of them. Way too often, their second shot is from the sand.

My mentor, golf legend, Ken Venturi, had the answer. Of course, like most of what he taught me, he made it so darn simple. Want to get it up on the green and over the bunker? Aim for the top of the flagstick. It’s amazingly simple. You might go a little long but that sure is better than a little short! Try it tomorrow.

Enjoy the game again,
