When you’re facing a high bunker lip, don’t feel intimidated by the shot. Keep it simple; imagine a string going from your ball to the top of the lip. More times than not, that angle from the ball to the bunker lip is less than the loft on your wedge.

Instead of stressing over the shot, trust the loft on your club and make a nice neutral swing and know that the ball will clear the lip with ease.
