Hey guys, John Novosel Jr. here. I've got a tip for you out of the bunkers. It's about a different way to enter the sand, it's also about equipment. So, I see a lot of people getting really, really steep out of the bunkers. I want you to try a much wider backswing, much more shallow. But I also want you to try this new Pyramid P4 Prism Wedge. I can't believe when I took my first practice stroke how this cuts right through the sand. It's kind of hard packed in here, and it cut right through the sand. So let's give this a try. Very shallow, very wide, kind of like Steve Stricker or Jason Day, and then you just let the club do the work, open face. Pops it right out of there, had some nice spin on it — and this is tough sand! I don't know if you can tell, but there's just not much sand in here. Look at that come right out of there! I'm not even trying and there's hardly any sand. Great wedge, great feel. Try that for better bunker play and lower scores.
