Normally bunkers are not to much of a problem for me, we have horrible fluffy ones in the summer but I use a lob wedge with a bit of bounce and manage OK.. Sea side sand I positively love and use the same club.. BUT this winter, for some reason I have not worked out yet, my bunker play is awful. The sand is very heavy and seems to have a hard layer just under the top inch or so.. My Lob wedge just seems to slide off this hard layer and into the back of the ball.. tried a sand wedge but with that I seem to hit it fat.. I need to spend some time in a bunker but need to find out what the best way of approaching these shots... Maybe a PW or a steeper swing can anyone help please??
