GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - For most amateur golfers, properly executing a green-side bunker shot is a lot like hitting the lottery.

All too often, high-handicappers take too little or too much sand, which either leaves the ball in the bunker or flies it well over the green - neither of which deliver the desired result.

Luckily, Ironwood Golf Course Club Professional, Eric Thomas, demonstrates a simple drill to help golfers of all skill levels.

Once you’ve practiced this drill a few times, finding your ball in the sand will make it go from a frustrating experience to your favorite day at the beach.

Ironwood Golf Course is located at 2100 NE 39th Ave, Gainesville, FL 32609 right next to the Gainesville Airport.
