The Jason Day Bunker Drill is a simple way to improve your bunker play. Jason is widely regarded as the best bunker player on tour.


Step 1: Watch
Watch the video.

Step 2: Know The Common Faults 
Most amateurs don’t open the club face enough. If you don’t open the face enough, you don’t use the all-important “bounce”. A square club face will dig into the sand (that’s bad!).

Most amateurs don’t have their “sternum” over the ball. They have it behind the ball, which makes you hit too far behind the ball.

Most amateurs aren’t aggressive enough. Have the courage to swing hard and finish high!

Step 3: Sternum Over Ball
Have your “sternum” over the ball with the ball just slightly forward of the middle.

Step 4: Get Low
Bend your knees and get low. Have a wide stance (wider than you think). Lower hands.
