There are many different situations, but in general hit the ball first if you can. Also, the shaft must be in line with the front arm through impact to have a solid shot (no flipping). Now a buried lie in a bunker is different… you want a “dig sole” or think of a slightly closed club face to remove all the bounce to let the club go down through the sand and kind of gouge the ball out.
