More Loft


You know the setup and basics of how to get out of the rough yet the ball barely flies out of it.


A common mistake that golfers make is that they fail to take enough loft in the rough. When in doubt, select a club with plenty of loft.


Key thought is to striking the back of the ball. If you have a steep swing, you will reduce the odds that the club will turn in the tall grass. Most people take less club and swing harder. Try using a hybrid to hit out of the rough. This way you can take enough club with loft and still have a smooth swing.
