3 Steps to Hitting a Ball out of the Rough

There are 3 steps to successfully hitting a ball out of the rough:

  1. Examine your lie. The worse the lie the less options. The better the lie the more options you have.
  2. Select your club based on your lie NOT the distance from the hole.
  3. 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!
