Speaker 1: I want to thank you for joining me on this week's mini-clinic, the art of scoring from the rough.
Understanding that where this ball sits, is it sitting up? Is it sitting down? That is really the key to improving your short game around the green from the rough.
This week we discussed a couple things.
One, we talked about a normal bunker shot where the ball's sitting down.
Remember, we open the club face, we play it like a bunker shot where we open the club face, we get our weight left, we use a lot of wrist and we strike down through the shot.
Then when the ball was sitting up, we changed our weight, we moved it back where it was more 50/50 and we didn't use wrist hit.
We waved our swing a lot wider.
We just sort of picked the ball off the grass, that's really the key.
If I put my weight left, I'm going to go right underneath the ball.
We then talked about, what do we do when the pin is really close to us and the ball is sitting down in the grass? Well, you have to follow the rules again where your weights left, the club face is open.
The key to it is then gripping the club really tight with the last three fingers of your left hand really holding this club.
Club face, again, is open and all we do is make a big swing and we just stick the club into the ground.
That ball will pop out nice, high and soft.
That is the key.
Those are three little areas that you can use.
Use those tips to really improve your short game around the green and start shooting lower scores.
