Speaker 1: Here we are next to the green, out of the rough.
The biggest thing here is really deciding what lock do I have.
Is the ball sitting up, is it sitting down and that's kind of the key here.
Now, I've got kind of a ridge here that I've got to go up and over.
The wind is a little bit at my back and that's huge.
The two biggest factors that when it comes to chipping and pitching are wind and lie.
Okay? Any wind, downwind and I'm not going to have any spin and so therefore I must use height to stop the ball.
In this situation coming out of the rough I've got pretty good pretty good lie but what we're going to do is we're going to go with the ultra high.
Because I'm coming out of the rough and if you're a little confused about what the ultra high is, please go back to some of the earlier videos because we talk about controlling the height with the low, the medium, the high, the ultra high, and the slide.
I'm going to use ultra high here because it's in the rough.
Quick question for you at home, how many of you struggle when the ball is in the rough whether it's sitting down, sitting up, of knowing how the ball is going to come out?
If your hand hasn't gone up then you're better than every tour player because every tour player struggles coming out of the rough.
What we do is we take control back by forcing the ball.
Whenever you're in the rough, you want to hit either the ball, you want to force the ball low or you want to force it high with the ultra high or slide that way you can just dictate what kind of shot you're going to hit here.
In this situation I'm going to go because I'm in the rough and we're going to have the ball sitting down a little bit.
I'm going to have the ultra high so I'm going to move the ball more forward, I'm going to open the face, walk around the clock, and now the locks little secret.
Anytime you're in rough you want to grip the club a little bit firmer with the last three fingers of your left hand.
Whenever you're in rough or you have resistance, the grass will try to grab the nozzle and shut the face down.
I don't want that.
What we're going to do, like I said, open the face, hands and weight are still forward, gripping it a little bit tighter, hit your shot up there.
I actually had a lot of spin on that one.
I'll make my par from there but remember the secrets.
Out of the rough, dictate do you want the ball to come in low or high, what's the lie, are you going to have an ultra high shot or a slide depending on the lie.
We'll talk about that more as you continue to watch.
But again, when you take control back out of the rough or in difficult situations, you have control over your game and you can make par a lot more often.
