Luke Donald shares the bunker secrets that make him the world’s best sand player – and explains how he developed his skills.
"I think short game will take you a long way" …. Sorry Luke? …. "I think SHORT game will take you a LONG way" … Just f*·$%ing genius!
Wondering what bounce on your 60 degree? Looks about 13
4 dislikes? Mystery that someone could t get something out of this and appreciate a free lesson from a top pro in his element rather than some YouTube guru.
this is cool
Thanks Luke this has really helped my green side bunker performance.
Nice shoes Luke…..Tap Dance part time?
Compared to a basic 50-50 body weight set up, how will it be arranged in bunkers ? more like 45-55 on your left leg or 35-65 ? Im a right handed player thx 🙂
Luke that thing you call pretending to be seve, I call that golf session, like skate boarders session curbs, golfers can do golf session! Genius
He has custom grinds on his wedges but his 60 degree has about 5 degrees of bounce. Tour pro's all typically have less bounce because they don't need as much of it. Whereas wedges off the rack aimed at weekend players will be around 12 or more.
what type of bounce does he have on his wedges? he talks about using the bounces on all his wedges but online most of the wedges have less than 10 degrees of bounce
What's the point of the subtitles, they're wrong on almost every word.
One dislike! That probably was Luke himself. He is such a perfectionist. LOL
Yeah, obviously that's what I mean. Head forward, grip back.
not forward!!! leaning back!!!! huge mistake!!!!
i bloody hates bunker
Its less about copying his swing than using the principles – use the bounce, face open, shaft forward.. Anyone can adapt that
what ball does luke use?!
@GolfingWoody be careful when trying to make your swing like someone else's. what works for them might not work for you. everyone's body works in different ways to some degree. better to take parts of the swing like take away and downswing but make them work with your hip rotation. but i'm glad to hear it is working out well so far hopefully the progress continues in your game. good luck on the course man.
Nice vids, wonderful!! I think, if I saw him on the street without the mizuno cap, I might not recognise him. LOL
Can't wait to try this out. Come to play where it all began for Luke and his brother Christian at Hazlemere Golf Club in Buckinghamshire, UK, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – There's even a hole named after Luke – a Par 4 where he had a Hole in One at the age of 13. Garry Hartley – Club Captain at Hazlemere 2012.
Even though its 0 degrees outside at the moment hopefully it will thaw out enough this afternoon to let me go to the range and practice this!
