Golf Tip – Grain in the Rough

June 20, 2016 Posted by Matt

Grain in the roughThe grain in the rough is just as important as the grain on the green.  If you have a pitch shot from the rough next to the green, look at the rough and determine which way the grass is pointing.  If the grass is against you, there is a good chance the club will catch the grass and stop at impact.  If you find yourself in the situation where you are pitching against the grain in the rough, open the face of your wedge and swing fifty percent faster.  The increased swing speed and open club face will help you cut through the grass and propel the ball up and out of the rough.
