Chuck and other golfers who have seen the short game video,

What do you recommend changing for short and long bunker shots? Same club but vary length of backswing or change club with same length backswing? (I am assuming keeping the other 3 points in the video for bunker play the same).

Thanks

We actually did a section for the dvd on this topic but cut it out because the cameras were off and the DVD was getting too long. Essentially, there are two schools of thought. One, keep the same club and just swing harder. If you catch it a little thin, the ball will have more spin and come back to the hole. If you catch it heavy, it will release more. The other is to change clubs. I have found that I am more consistent changing between my wedges on the longer shots and can still put a ton of spin from 20-30 yards with a 52 degree wedge, so I switch. To hit a 60 degree wedge from 30 yards is a very full shot and I would only do it if I needed to spin the ball a great deal.

  I'd say a combination of the 2 works well for me. I'm pretty good at bunkers, at least to the point that i don't fear them anymore. I will usually use a SW if i can. I'll change the length of swing a little, and swing a little harder or softer, but I never want to go past a 3/4 backswing. If i need more than that, that's when i change clubs.
  Chuck's a little more advanced than me obviously. From 30 yds. i don't even worry about spin. I'm happy with anything inside 20 ft. from that range.
 The only time I'd use LW is on a VERY short bunker shot where i don't have much green to work with.
