Dig for victory

To recover from a plugged lie in a greenside bunker you’ll need three tools.

First you’ll need loft, so open the clubface as mush as possible at address and maintain that loft through the shot.

Next you’ll need a steep angle of attack in the downswing – keep your weight on your left side at address to promote this.

The last tool you’ll need is speed, so swing aggressively into the sand behind the ball and don’t worry about a follow through – with this type of shot you’ll rarely get the club back out of the sand having dug it in so deep.
