How to hit out of a sand trap

Shots around the green comprise about 65 percent of your score, being able to navigate your way from 30 to 40 yards in is very important. One of the big obstacles near the green is the sand trap. What are ways that you can accommodate the sand trap and get yourself on the green?

Most times, the goal is not to strike the ball. The low point of the swing is going to be before the ball. If you watch golf on television, you’ll have heard that clean sounding sand shot.
