Speaker 1: I had a question from one of our Insider's Clubs from one of the guys that lives across the pond over there in Europe and he was asking, how do you play out of the heather? As you can see here, I've got some really thick grass here and I'm going to drop this ball right in there and this grass is up to about my shin height, the ball's sitting down.
Understand that when you are hitting these shots, this follows the same rules as a bunker.
One, get the ball out of trouble, get it out of the bunker or get it out of this thick grass.
Two, get the ball on the green and three, get it close to the pin.
This is very difficult.
What we have to do here is play this similar to a bunker shot and what I mean by that is, we're going to open the club face just like a bunker shot.
We're also going to take the last three fingers of our left hand here and we're going to grip this club extremely tight.
This is the same rule that we apply when we're hitting out of very hard sand.
We're going to grip this club tight because as I swing through here, this grass is going to try to grab the hozzle and shut the face.
I simply set up here with an open face like a bunker shot, wide stance here, open the face, grip the club tight, now I need a big swing here and I've got to keep the club accelerating through this.
There is a lot of resistance here, just like the sand.
Here we go.
The ball comes out high and soft and that is no CGI people, that is the shot that I just hit there.
That would take that every single time.
That is what we want.
If you can just go ahead and remember, it's not as hard as you think, because it is a bad lie, but you have to just follow the rules.
Get the ball out of the thick stuff, get the ball on the green and you know what? That shot, it worked out, on a scale of one to ten, that is a 20.
That is far beyond what I would expect out of that, but if you do the practice, understand the rules, grip the club tight with the last three fingers of your left hand, play it wide here, make a big swing and accelerate the club, get the ball on the green and hopefully you can save par or at least not make double and at least, at the worst, make bogie.
