Last weekend I watched Christina Kim, LPGA Professional, exit the sand trap after hitting the pin. Originally, I thought she took the long way out and wondered if that was the proper way to exit a sand trap. After some thought and her explanation, I believe that I learned something new or at least reinforced something I naturally do.
Here is the original Tweet and a follow up Tweet to reinforce that Kim did the right thing taking the long walk out of the sand trap.
I have to say that this is a fantastic learning scenario. How many times have we seen (or actually entered) a sand trap all chewed up by entering and exiting a sand trap improperly. Who would have thought that a simple thing can help beginners understand the value of paying attention.
What do you think about Kim’s exit from the sand trap?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

Jim, always enter and exit from a low point. Speaking of bunkers, courses need to bring back rakes. Covid is not getting transmitted this way.
Was a bit overly protective but now that we understand more, it’s safe to return them.

I amnot sure that we are quite ready for that up here. We have very low numbers, but the season is almost over, so I do not see rakes coming back anytime soon.
