Best Answer

The bottom of the arc of your swing is behind the ball, so you'll always hit behind it or you swing to quickly and your swing gets out of sync causing your arms to swing wildly and hit behind it. Or you drop your right leg too soon in the down swing, all these cause you to hit behind it.

Follow Through. Do NOT hit the ball first. Use the sand behind the ball to help push the ball out of the bunker. Open your sand wedge face so it's facing the sky.
