Martin Hall (and Gary Player) with a Sand Play Tip (Video)

First off, congratulations to the Illinois men and the Duke women on their victories at the East Lake Cup (And also congrats to the Chicago Cubs for breaking their 108-year win drought at the World Series!)

And now for a quick refresher on how to "strike the match" when you hit a sand shot. This Golf Digest video from Martin Hall is a couple of years old, but I like the way he teaches the "strike" in this one. I don't think I've ever actually HEARD the strike as clearly as I do in this one.

I would suggest you try this at home, using a plastic-covered cushion. That's what Hall is using; if you can find one of those old sleeping mats like the ones kids used for nap time in elementary school, that would be perfect. But any kind of cushion with a slick surface should work.

Once you can get that little "zipping" sound Hall gets, you've got this technique down.
