Bunker tips from Amy Boulden

Amy Boulden shows you have to play a confident shot when facing a downhill lie in a bunker.

Once she takes her stance Amy says that the most important part is staying with the shot. If you don’t, it means you will come back on the ball and take too much sand during impact. Amy also says that it is important to have enough loft on your club to make sure that you get enough height to clear the lip of the bunker.

Amy Boulden: A bio

Amy has been a well known name since the age of 15 when in 2008 she won the BBC Young Sportswomen of the year award. After turning Pro in 2013, she enjoyed a successful rookie year in 2014, accumulating six top-25 finishes that included four top-10’s as well as three top-5 finishes. Back-to-back top 5 finishes at the German Open and Sherbank Masters saw the young Welsh star pick up over $27,000. Her success was not overlooked and her season was capped by winning the coveted LET Rookie of the year crown.

Amy followed her rookie success with a solid 2015 season. A 4th place finish at the Buick Championship was followed up with an 8th place finish at the Scottish Open.

A 9th place finish at the RICOH British Open saw Amy collect over $60,000 and a very respectable top-10 finish in only her third Open.

Amy is a brand ambassador for Mizuno and Rohnisch sportswear.
