How many 47-foot sandtrap shots did you make over Labor Day weekend? Zero, right? 2020 PGA champion Collin Morikawa found his ball plugged in greenside bunker Sunday at the Tour Championship and he’s not fluffing his ball like you hackers out there. Play it where it lies.
Now I want you hackers to watch how Collin plays this shot. Clubface open, PUNCH! Most of us are hitting that ball into the bunker lip and it’s dribbling back down and then we’re duffing another one before those of us with golf integrity eventually make it out and take a nine.
“Don’t try this at home…or do,” Collin wrote on Twitter.
I know many of you are cutting strokes off your game to make your Grint app score look good. Let’s play ’em where they lie and try to duplicate shots like this from Morikawa. Get out there today and refuse to fluff golf balls.
Collin starts the final round of the Tour Championship in fifth place, seven strokes off Dustin Johnson’s -19.
