Best Answer

You would normally use a sand wedge or lob wedge. However, if you cannot get onto the green you should consider playing out sideways or backwards. If you decide not to play it you make take an unplayable lie, two club lengths from where the ball lies, keeping that point between you and the flag, no nearer the hole.

My golf ball embeds near the front edge bunker what should i do?

Front edge closest the green or front edge farthest from the green? If you are at the front of the bunker nearest the green you should open your body and the face of the club and splash it out. If it is farthest from the green you should assess if you can get it out towards the green, if not you should think about playing out sideways or backwards to prevent racking up a huge number.
