Rough Time with Rough - Page 2

post #19 of 23

For #3, because the rough will grab your hosel and twist the club, I grip the club more firmly to prevent the club being twisted.  I think I read that sometime ago, where Jack Nicklaus advises firmer grip in the rough.

 

Works for me.  If I don't grip my club more firmly, I will hook the shot as the grass grabs the hosel and closes the club face.

In deep rough, I have also noticed the tendency for me to pull my shots to the left.

Man, depending on how wet the grass is, #3 may not even go 150 yards.  That looks like a bunch of grass from here.

Looks like the greens I played earlier this year. Lie 1 and 2 look pretty simple. A little firmer. Lie 3 I'd try a little steeper. Use a little more club and make sure I made good contact with a lesser backswing. A lot depends on how far and what lies ahead.
