Tough Shot Made Easy

Don’t get snagged by the rough

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

hen I see golfers in this sit­u­a­tion, with the ball against the rough col­lar, they’re usu­ally try­ing to cre­ate some crazy shot. They’ll play the ball back and chop it, or try to bump it with a 3–wood. Those things can work, but you never prac­tice them. In­stead, do some­thing you do ev­ery hole: Putt it. Well, not ex­actly.You’re go­ing to make a putting stroke us­ing your sand wedge. With its heavy sole, the sand wedge will slide through the rough with­out get­ting stuck. Take your nor­mal putting grip and stance – re­mem­ber, ev­ery­thing
