 John Ball Bunker Mid-Iron
Ball is playing the "dunch" shot made famous by James Braid, who employs it whenever occasion calls for it, from a bunker, from a bad lie on the fairway, or from the rough.
The clubface comes into contact with the ball before the sole of the club reaches the ground, and when the ball is lying on firm ground, the stroke imparts lots of back spin on the ball.
Ball has followed through somewhat, but this is due to the sand giving way before the power of the stroke, but there was no intention or effort on his part to have any follow through, and only such "follow on" as would carry the club-head firmly down into the sand.
