Escape from plugged lies


From a plugged lie, the main thing we need to appreciate is how much more sand there is between your club and the ball. In bunker shots, the club doesn’t actually make contact with the sand, the sand provides resistance.

So if there’s more resistance, this means you need to provide more clubhead speed into the sand for the ball to travel the required distance. TG Elite Pro Rich Ellis also gives you a couple of extra tips to save you from plugged bunker lies.
