How I handle any bunker shot

Rickie Fowler

HERE AT THE MEDALIST GOLF club in Hobe Sound, Florida, I’m in a steep-face pot bunker. Most golfers associate these hazards with Scotland and Ireland, but we have synthetic ones at this club. Instead of bricked layers of sod that can melt in a muggy climate, the face of this bunker is built with strips of artificial turf. Only up close can you tell they’re not real. (As a member here, I’ve had this view more times than I care to admit.) Tough as they are, these bunkers have forced me to perfect a few techniques for extreme situations. Learn them, and you’ll gain the confidence to handle any bunker at your course. – with max Adler
