Top 3 Bunker Play Golf Instruction Books!

Why do us mere mortals find playing bunker shots so daunting? One of the main reasons is probably because unlike other shots in golf where you are looking to strike the golf ball first, with a bunker shot you are looking to make contact with the sand first (preferably a couple of inches behind the ball!)

Ironically, this is the very reason why golf professionals and highly skilled amateur golfers find playing golf bunker shots very easy. There is a greater margin for error with a bunker shot, whereas a slight miss hit on a normal golf shot can have dramatic negative consequences.

The key to playing great bunker shots is to firstly get the technique right and secondly be positive throughout the stroke. Allow the Top 3 Bunker Play Books below, from some of the best bunker play specialists out there, to take the fear out of your bunker play by showing you how its done.

Bunker Play by Gary Player - Best Bunker Play Books

No. 1 - Bunker Play by Gary Player

Rated by most of his fellow professionals as the best Bunker player in the history of the game, Gary Player clearly outlines the secrets of his success from the sand in 'Bunker Play' and teaches you the basic fundamentals of good bunker play, from reading sand to set-up and the slow, wristy swing.

He discusses which type of sand wedge to use under different conditions and what the various types of bunkers are that can either help or hinder the average golfer. Gary Player also shows you how to practice your shots when you're away from the course to help you improve your game.

The Art of Scoring by Stan Utley - Best Bunker Play Books

No. 2 - The Art of Scoring by Stan Utley

'The Art of Scoring' shows you how your short game handicap and overall skill level should dictate strategy. Breaking down pitching, chipping, bunker play, and putting them into three proficiency categories, Stan Utley presents custom techniques for saving shots simply by making better decisions.

He leads us through a round with three amateurs two 10-handicappers and a 20-handicapper to show how improved strategy and execution can transform a player’s game. With behind the scenes teaching sessions and crash courses on the hardest green side bunker shots, The Art of Scoring is a must have.

Master Your Short Game by Tony Johnstone - Best Bunker Play Books

No. 3 - Master Your Short Game by Tony Johnstone

Tony Johnstone is an unknown in the US, but has some name recognition on the European tour (watch the golf channel - you'll see his name somewhere on the leader board every once in a while). He is a tiny guy so he's had to compensate for his lack of length with a better short game.

There is a foreword by Nick Price (his fellow Zimbabwean) in his book 'Master Your Short Game', which lends some credibility. But the lessons and thoughts speak for themselves. The book handles every type of awkward stance and lie you could possible encounter when playing out of the sand.
