Speaker 1: I want to welcome you again to this week's mini clinic, where we're talking about the art of scoring from the rough.
What we'd already talked about was how do you play when the ball is sitting down.
Well, here I've got the ball sitting up in the rough.
If I take my face and open the club face, weight left just like this, and I swing it that ball is going to go nowhere, okay? I need something that's going to go a little bit further.
Again, when the ball is sitting up, what you've got to do is you've got to adjust your set up.
We've got to adjust our weight.
We've also got to change our angle of attack.
When this ball is sitting up like this, what we've got to do is we've got to put our weight where it's more fifty fifty and instead of using wrists, we're going to use our wider swing like we do for the CJ slide, like I talk about in my short cam DVDs.
It's going to look like this.
I'm set up here with the face.
I adjust my weight back.
My stroke gets wider this way, and I can pop that ball out wherever I need it to go.
It all comes down to feel from there, but you have to adjust the stroke, your weight, whatever it is depicting on the lie that is necessary.
If you can do that, you can become skillful around the greens out of the rough.
