Big, bowl-shaped bunkers are a piece of cake—shots that find them invariably roll down into the flat, leaving you with a perfect lie. It’s the shallow bunkers that are the most challenging. The ball can end up anywhere—near the lip being a favorite destination when things aren’t really going your way. Not only does ending up near the edge of the bunker affect your stance (how ’bout 
my position here?), you can almost guarantee a plugged lie, because the golfers before you raked the hazard from the center out.

Lip lies are soft lies. As you can guess, your standard bunker swing won’t cut it. Odds are you’ll have one foot out of the bunker. Fine. Set 80 percent of your weight on it. That’s your anchor. Firm up your hold and take a mighty swing, burying the clubhead in the sand just behind the ball. You got a bad break. Make the bunker pay for it. Pound it! The more you hold back, the more likely the ball will remain in the bunker.

1. Keep your head steady: And make sure your eyes are on your entry point from start to finish. Sliding backward or forward increases the odds of a flub or a skull. Think of your lower body as a foundation, not a moving part.

2. Squeeze the grip: This is a power shot. You can tell by the expression on my face. So take a power grip. If your normal grip pressure is an 8 on a 
1-to-10 scale, make this one a 12. You’re chopping wood here, not finessing a wedge.

3. Put pressure on your front foot: Any time you have one foot out of the bunker, make that foot your anchor. Lean into it at address, and keep your weight over it throughout your motion. Your goal: Bury the clubhead in the sand—and leave it there.

Improve your follow-through to stop chunking irons

You know those shots when it feels like the earth grabs your club before impact and then sends a large patch of turf down the fairway nearly as far as your ball?

Of course you do. We’ve all been there at some point, and it’s NOT a good feeling.

While a chunked iron shots inevitably happen to all golfers, if you’re scraping large chunks of dirt off of your clubs more often than not, look no further because we’re here to help.

Improving contact with backward bend

Chunked or fat shots are often the result of having a “low point,” the vertically lowest point of the swing’s arc, too far behind the ball.

What we see with many golfers that chunk their irons is the upper body bends too far forward in the downswing and then stays there during the follow-through. This results in a bending of the arms and steep angle of attack of that often bottoms the club’s arc out before impact – the perfect recipe for a chunk.

The best ball strikers instead tend to start bending the upper body slightly back (away from the target) in the downswing and follow-through, which helps to straighten the arms into impact and shallow the club’s angle of attack.

These ideal elements conversely encourage a low point in front of the ball, which leads to the ball-first contact we all strive for.

How to add backward bend in the downswing and follow-through

The first step to improving your contact is moving the low point of your swing arc more toward the target, which as aforementioned can be encouraged with straighter arms through impact and more backward bend of the upper body in the downswing and follow-through.

Patrick Nuber shares a simple drill in the video below to help you accomplish this, and it requires nothing more than a tee, a ball, and a little practice to get used to the new feeling of bending more backward as you hit the ball.

Take a look, give it a try, and you’ll soon start seeing pure golf shots fly down the fairway rather than those frustrating chunks of Earth!
