Dig It Out of the Deep Stuff

Yes, another video! This one is from Golf Magazine Top100 Teacher Mark Hackett. He has 4 tips to help you get your ball out of the deep rough -- a place we all find ourselves far too often.



Just to make sure you didn't miss them, here are the 4 checkpoints:
  1. Stand a bit farther from the ball
  2. Lower your hands a bit
  3. Set your weight more on your lead leg
  4. Make an even-paced swing (i.e., don't try to swing faster by jerking the club -- you won't get accurate contact that way)
Doing this will move your hands slightly ahead of the ball and steepen your downswing plane. It's the steeper downswing -- and the resultant downstrike -- that gets the ball to pop up and out. The last thing you want to do is try to help the ball out and swing upward; if you do, you'll top the ball. Hit down on it!

And if for some reason the video won't run properly, here's the original link at golf.com.
