    Ping eye 2 xg L. It’s indestructible so it gets to blast all the rocks out of my normal bunkers.

    Pm grind 58 for pretty much everything out of the sand green side. Just open it up if I need to get the ball up quick.

    I tend to use my 54/8 M for most bunker shots, open the face to much more loft and chunk and run or hit hard through for spinny ones. I adjust the face depending on the lie and thickness of sand. I play Links in Scotland and Parkland in Texas.
    I have had the odd one recently with my 60
    /8 M where the pot bunker face was very steep and close but I find you can manipulate the 54* very easily so very rare do this.

    I use my Ping Glide 2.0 58* TS mostly out of the bunkers and any high shots or shots I need to stop quickly around the green. For chip shots and longer shots that may require some run out I use my 54* SS Glide 2.0. So basically if the shot is going high 58* if it’s going low 54*

    60* TS for most stock shots. Longer shots or really soft sand I’ll go to my 55* WS.

    56 PING ES grind. If sand is firm I keep it square or slight open to keep bounce low. Fluffier sand I can open slightly or open more to get more bounce.

    Second this. Freaky how good my Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth 56* ES is out of bunkers; just makes it so easy. I am curious what the shape of the Eye Soul does to make it so effective with just 8* bounce. Makes no sense to me.

    Vokey 58.08 Copper M Grind for everything green side. Any longer bunker shots I might opt for the 54 depending on the situation.

    For shorter shots, I use my 60 degrees Vokey with 12 degrees of bounce in a K grind. For most shots, I use a Vokey 54 (bent to 55) with 10 degrees of bounce in an S grind.

    Green side, 60.08, it has a nice combination of not too much bounce but a bit of width on the sole.

    Have the 54 with 12* and the 58 with 8*. That way I am covered for firm or soft sand or ground.

  • BB28403BB28403 Members Posts: 3,586 ✭✭

    Clubproguy putts it out and that’s good enough for me!
    Of course the reverse putt out sometimes leads to reentry and another reverse putt out.

    Mizuno JPX 60-08 for 95% of bunker shots. If sand is super fluffy then the 56-12. Bunker play is one of the few parts of my game that is pretty decent.
