If you’re stuck in some thick green-side rough, hit a bunker shot.
Imagine this, your ball is surrounded by thick rough. There’s no way you’re going to get the club face on the ball. So, you’re worried that the club is going to get narled up. Set up to the ball like a bunker shot- little left of target, open the club face- then rip through the rough and watch your ball pop out.
It’s a lot easier than it sounds. There’s less margin for error and you’re more likely to get the ball onto the green. The key…accelerate through the impact zone. You’ve got to commit.
