Bunker Technique with Tiger Woods & Jason Day | TaylorMade Golf

In this video

Watch the TaylorMade Team athletes Tiger Woods and Jason Day explain how they hit bunker shots, and their differing philosophies to execute a plan to get out of the sand using the MG Wedge and MG HiToe Wedges.

The pros go into detail about what techniques they use in their game and how they adapt depending on course conditions.

TaylorMade’s HI-TOE wedge lineup has been expanded to include a full range of wedge lofts from 50° to 64°. Featuring full-face scoring lines in the 56° to 64° and standard scoring lines in the 50° to 54°, each HI-TOE wedge also has an expanded toe area to deliver high-spin performance whether you’re taking full swings on your approach or playing finesse shots around the green.

The HI-TOE wedge offers three different sole grinds to match your style of play:

Standard Sole (50°, 52°, 54°)
The all-purpose grind that is perfect for full approach shots into the green. This sole is well suited for both normal and soft turf conditions. All of these lofts feature standard scoring lines.

4-Way Sole (56°, 58°, 60°)
New 4-way cambered sole with a mid-bounce design of 10°. The leading edge has less belly with a more blunt contour. This new sole has an increased trailing edge and heel relief—great for players with average or steep swings from normal turf and/or softer sand.

ATV Grind (58°, 60°, 64°)
Channel-cut ATV mid-sole with a bounce of 12°. The “V” shaped leading edge moves through the turf and sand more seamlessly for better contact.

  1. Pro tip: For all of us out there who find ourselves playing in firm, compressed bunkers (typical on cheaper courses where resources are limited)
    Try playing a more standard chip/pitch shot in which you would strike the ball first as opposed to sand then ball. The trick for this shot is that you must deliver about 25-30% MORE power than you would use to cover the same distance chipping or pitching from grass. The sand will slow your club down through the impact zone and will add a LOT of backspin (Hence the extra power on the shot)
    Give this a try the next time you find yourself in a "concrete" bunker and you may be pleasantly surprised at how consistent and effective (and relatively EASY!) this little shot is.

    Final Notes:

    -The hardest part of this shot is getting accustomed to how much force you can use…. Your brain will tell you to hit it softer than is needed to cover the distance
    -This shot is only appropriate for clearing a low-medium height bunker lip… if you need to get the ball more than 3-4 ft up in the air very quickly this shot will not work well

  2. Jason changes his wedges twice a year, Tiger on average every one and a half tournaments! I had my last set for 25 years and I intend (considering I paid over $2,000 for my new set of clubs) to be buried with existing ones!……Might explain my 20+ handicap.

  3. I don't play golf, didn't know the guy in blue shirt and understood 20% of what they said.
    My brain has never tried so hard and moved so fast trying to understand something it doesn't understand.
    I totally respected them and the knowledge they have in the craft of golf. Thank you.

  4. wow Jason Day too you helped me so much with posture and how to sit into the position but my back limits that. take care of your back

  5. Patrick Reed: 'So what you gotta do is take an address, feign a waggle and tamp the sand down behind your ball. Take a step back, have a practice swing and make sure you make contact with the sand when you do. I hope this helps"

  6. I just wait til everyone else isnt looking, pick up the ball with one hand, sand with the other, make a swoosh sound while stomping, than throw the ball and the sand onto the green. Its very effective.

  7. Ok this is actually interesting stuff for golf nerds, meaningful and relevant commentary. Not some hokey shit. Good to see TM gets golfing
