The Streching Drill:

The bigger the radius, the bigger the arc of your swing and the farther the ball will go with less effort. How do we promote a bigger arc in your swing?

Answer: Improving the turning of your shoulders.

The muscles in your back may not be stretched enough to create the bigger arc that you need to play to your potential. If this is the case, practice this exercice many times a day for a few weeks. The stretching of the muscles in your back will enable you to keep that left arm straighter thus maintaining the radius of your swing.

Sand Play:

When executing the golf bunker shot, without touching the sand with your club, place your feet in an open stance. (Turned more to the left as shown)

Position the ball about opposite the left heel to promote hitting the sand behind the ball.
