Outside the Bunker
The ball landed just outside of a sand bunker, requiring you to stand in the bunker while the ball is higher than your feet lying on the grass.
Play this shot just as you normally would when the ball is above your feet. One necessary adjustment is to make sure you have stable footing in the bunker.
Look to see how much lower your feet are than the ball. Choke down on the shaft by this much. Swing more around your body. If you do not, you will end up digging the club into the soil with very little distance. It might help to think of this shot as if you are hitting a really low baseball with a flat, rounded swing.
