"Sand Shots" from the Rough

I've posted several clips on different types of chips and pitches, but I don't think I've posted one yet on how to play a bunker-style shot from deep rough. Well, we're going to fix that today. Here's PGA Master Golf Instructor Ken Green from the Aviara Golf Academy to give you the basics:



Ken's explanation is pretty simple, so let me just add a couple of thoughts.

First, this is basically the same technique you use out of the sand. You hit slightly behind the ball and let the thick grass throw it out.

Second, this shot gives you some height on the ball. That means it'll land a bit softer and (hopefully) won't roll as far.

And finally, if you've been paying attention to the basics I blog about constantly, like a one-piece takeaway, using connection, keeping your hands in front of you, and such, you've already got this shot in your repertoire. Just pay attention to what Ken said in the video above and you'll be using this shot like an expert in no time!
