Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The Golf Masters Series features comprehensive and in-depth golf instructional books by the leading PGA players in their areas of expertise. Each book is packed with stunning, full-color, step-by-step photographs, which will show golfers of all abilities the basic fundamentals of the game

Gary Player's Bunker Play comprehensively covers all aspects of playing out of bunkers, including "reading the sand," the set-up and slow wristy swing, the best type of sand wedges to use on different courses, and the different types of bunkers that can greatly help or hinder that average golfer.

The ultimate lesson in bunker play--from the greatest bunker player in the history of the game.

From the Inside Flap

Gary Player is recognized and respected as a champion golfer all over the world. One of only a few to have won all four majors, he is legendary for being one of the toughest of competitors with an enormous will to win and the coolest of heads under pressure.

Bunker shots are Gary Player's favorite shots in golf, and in this book he clearly outlines the secrets of his success from the sand.

He is rated by most of his fellow professionals as the best bunker player in the history of the game. Time after time, in the final rounds of a championship, he has splashed out of sand from a difficult lie to end up with a tap-in putt. He believes firmly that his ability to play the bunkers has been the most significant aspect of his game in every one of his sixteen major championship victories on the regular and senior tours.

Player details the basic fundamentals of good bunker play, from "reading the sand" to the set-up and the slow, wristy swing. He discusses which type of sand wedge to use under different conditions and what the various types of bunkers are that can either help or hinder the average golfer. Player also shows you how to practice your shots when you're away from the course to help you improve your game.

Accompanied by 150 color photographs that beautifully illustrate Player's techniques, Bunker Play is the complete guide to mastering the high, short, or low shots that skip and bite; shots from uphill, downhill, or buried lies; or long, accurate fades from fairway bunkers.

After some practice, you should not only plan on getting out of the sand every time and putting the ball safely on the green, but you will aim, as he does, to hole out every greenside bunker shot you play.

Format: Hardcover
Acknowledged by many pros to have been the best bunker player ever, Gary teaches it all --- greenside, fairway bunker, setup, different types of sand, etc.
Complete with great sequence photos make this a gem if you can pick one up like I did at a bargain at an outlet shop.

A great, detailed read on how to play bunkers from one of the Masters. I haven't completed the book yet, but I already know more than 99% of golfers about the science of Bunker Play.

The title says it all. Book is wordy, repetitive and full of Gary pride. But he's about the best ever from the sand so if you can stand it you will benefit.
