The key to a thick rough flop shot.

When you’re play­ing a flop shot from thick rough it’s al­most like a bunker shot. It will be hard to get spin on the ball so you have to use height to get the ball fall­ing onto the green very steeply so it stops quickly. You need loft and club­head speed through im­pact to get the nec­es­sary height. Any kind of de­cel­er­a­tion through im­pact will lead to a chunk or you’ll dump the ball in the bunker in front of you. It’s much eas­ier for am­a­teurs to stop the ball with height than spin.
