Sue is here to explain how in six simple steps you can get yourself out of a plugged bunker lie.

Welcome to a new instruction series from Dr. Sue Shapcott and Change Golf Instruction. This video is all about plugged bunker lies.

Every now and again your ball will get plugged in a bunker. When it happens, you need to know how to escape. In this short video, I show you how.

Spoiler alert: The technique is not the same as a regular bunker shot!

There are six steps to perfecting this shot:
1. Ball back in your stance
2. Weight on your front foot
3. Grip your club tightly
4. Close the clubface
5. Aim to the right (if you're right-handed)
6. Swing the club upright
