3 Steps to Hitting a Ball out of the Rough
There are 3 steps to successfully hitting a ball out of the rough:
- Examine your lie. The worse the lie the less options. The better the lie the more options you have.
- Select your club based on your lie NOT the distance from the hole.
- Position the ball back in your stance if you have a bad or kinda bad lie so that you can hit down on the ball and eliminate the grass behind it.
The number 1 objective is to get the ball back in the fairway!
