Fairway bunkers

Fairway bunkers are tough. Most places don’t have an area to practice them, so it can be difficult to get proficient at it.

My best advice is to make sure you take a club with enough loft to get the ball out. Depending on your skill set pulling a club that can get to the green may not launch high enough to clear the lip of the bunker.

Sometimes its just best to take your medicine and make sure you get out on your first shot. It is still possible to safe par or worst case bogey if your playing your next shot from the fairway.
