Question

“Do you have a method for hitting out of the rough? I have a tendency to hit the ball fat out of the rough.”

Bobby’s Answer

Great question Rick,

Hitting out of the rough can be a tricky situation that adds many strokes to a player’s golf game. The more the ball sits down- the more grass growing behind the ball.

So what’s the solution?

Fortunately, you can solve this problem by creatively using the 5 dynamics.  By moving the ball back in your stance, you will move your swing bottom forward and steepen the angle of attack, capturing less grass between the club face and the ball.

Watch the video below to see what I mean.

  1. So Bobby, can we assume that carry will be LESS with this descending blow, and so should we be up or down-clubbing for this shot?

  2. I have a tendency to hit a topped shot. My buddies tell me I lift my head at impact. Do you have a suggestion to keep me from straightening up at the core to keep from topping my fairway shots?

  3. Bobby I am a golfer who had 20/20 vision wheI started but had asroke 14 years ago and lost my left peripheral vision, threfor can’t read the slope for my putting line. do you have any ideas on how to help a 90% blind person to read a slope. Thank you for taking the time to rad my question. HELP!!!

  4. Thanks Bobby for that information of How to Hit the Ball out of the Rough ! I ‘ve struggled with that too. But I have a question, with having both of my Hips Replaced 3 yrs ago, and being a left-handed golfer, I’m having trouble with Alinment . How can I become a more accurate shot maker ? Thanks for your time !

  5. Having trouble hitting my 5 iron. It used to be my favorite club but know I’m trying everything to make it work. It is very frustrating. Now I use it to punch outs.

  6. Great video lesson today — thank you, Bobby. Torrey Pines is my home course, and the kikuyu rough there can be really punishing. Best advice there is “stay out of the rough,” but, of course, that doesn’t always work. Next time I’m in the rough, will position my ball further back and steepen the angle of attack. Thanks.
