Deep Lie in Thick Rough

Posted June 29, 2015 in beginner intermediate distance control tips

In this situation, do not tighten your grip or tense up. Rather, hold the club naturally. A deep lie in the rough may make you think you need to go after the shot harder, but keeping your arms and wrists relaxed will allow you to get the club through the thick rough. A more lofted club like a 7,8 or 9-iron may make the shot more successful. Take your setup, keep a loose grip on the club and power through it like every other swing.
