-For greenside bunker shots, it's important to have an open club face and stance. Dig your feet in and lower your center of gravity because you want to hit behind and under the ball.
-There are two keys to playing from a plugged lie in the bunker. First, make the club face more square so it digs more. Second, your entry point should be steeper and closer to the ball.
-For shorter bunker shots, it starts with a shorter backswing. Next, make sure to slow down your tempo. Finally, the club face needs to be more open than a normal bunker shot.
