Hitting The Fairway Bunker Shot

by Matt Hibbs, PGA

Matt Hibbs, Director of Golf at On Top of the World Communities in Ocala, Florida. In 2009, Matt left Disney where he was a Class A Golf Professional, to become the Head Golf Professional at Candler Hills Golf Club and in 2012, his hard work paid off when he became the On Top of the World Director of Golf. Matt would like to be remembered as a person that was very helpful to others. “I want the golf department’s legacy, under my leadership, to be known as a staff who had a genuine concern for our residents and who always went above and beyond to help others.

Hitting The Fairway Bunker Shot

Most golfers try to pick the ball out of the sand from fairway bunkers, not disturbing a single grain in the process. However, most amateurs are better off hitting down on the ball, just as you would if you were hitting an iron shot, contacting the ball and then the sand.
