Hitting Out of The Rough
Hitting out of the rough requires a steeper angle of attack than normal fairway shots. To achieve that, you'll want less axis tilt. A couple common ways to handle this shot are:
- setting up with the shoulders more level
- swinging more with the upper body
- using more of an upper body lunge swing pattern
- Swinging more outside-in.
The amount of steepness you'll need depends on the thickness of the rough. Short first cuts of rough can be played like normal shots, but deeper primary rough will take some adjustments.
